Thou cheers bud on the tip, i almost forgot about that part
To add to what Serpentd mentioned to give it a good look use some dish washing liquid on index finger to make the epoxy smooth on top.Do this after filling from the bottom.
Gives it a nice look.
I used Davcon alluminium epoxy.

Man you guys posting the awesome pics w/the Speed Shot installed are making my wallet burn I've been fighting the urge to order one for a couple of months now, but I don' t think I can hold off much longer. More adjustments, ease of diff change, looks slick as can be......I think I'll be signing on to Raceday next.

But I did receive another goodie in the mailbox today. I ordered the new Ninja 12 from Team Kamikaze on Friday and I have it today. Awesome service Mr. Sim. I haven't had much time with it, but the quality thus far appears excellent.

You are using the ED Transm, so your final ratios are:

First 7.119:1
Second: 4.694:1

Depends on what track you planning on using it.....On first impression it will give you a very short and powerfull low end and a long and high top end...it looks suited for a track with very tight corners and a very long main straight???

I saw all the cool paint jobs and I was inspired to have a go. I think I have come to the conclusion that painting just isn't my thing

It sok ZOOM, but some tips for ya man, the orange around the windows could have taken a miss, dont get me wrong, its still good, but is it me or is it very flat couolur looking? have you every tried maybe a mask decal from LHS ? also try some metalics, they can always be really good in choice of colours and its just a matter of the right blend!!!

Besides that keep at it, we all eventually will get one right!! But again its BLUE

It was supposed to be blue. Obviously the colors look a little different in person that washed through the computer to get the file size.

I figure it's cheating to use a pre-made decal, if I was going down that road I would just use the internal graphics. I did a body like that before and of course it turned out good. But this time I was just trying to extend my skills a little. Everything seen in the pic was all done with hand made masks. Obviously there are no stickers on there yet.

As for the blue, I like blue.
