    These really are nice guys:thumbsup: Saw them in person today and Cory took care to get the tape on even and straight, wouldnt know they were mini blinds from the real deal ! Kindly, Cory gave several "boards" to mess with and see what I can come up with. I gave him two barrels that I did in yellow tape and need to pick up orange tape and reflective tape so I can make even better barrels.

    tighten all the way or lock/JB weld the diffs, and get some drift tires (HPI T-Drift are #1 choice)
    if you wanted to go further next part in line would be a front one way. and thats it. thats the great thing about drifting. almost no parts to buy:thumbsup:
    and dont forget to grind on the knuckles and "C"s to get max steering angle.
    im thinking on putting another drift meet together in 1 week:thumbsup:

    Ok, I'll work on those and keep up with the schedule. I head to Vegas all next week so I probably wont be ready for the next one, but maybe one in the future...:thumbsup:

    well since this is the scale thread i thought id put these pics in here rather than the chassis build thread.:thumbsup:

    new body, wheels, and tires


    i sprayed the lightbuckets with Spaztic mirror chrome, then cut up some Tamiya F-350 headlight lenses to make parking lamps.


    twin fart cannons and park bench wing



    i painted up this interior a couple years ago but it wouldnt work with my HPI so ill use it on this one.


    mirrors


    brakes


    more to come!

    Damn that looks good Cory! I ordered the BMW last night and now wish I had ordered an interior. I will get with my next round of orders:thumbsup: I made up some new barrels and wall using the blinds you gave me. I have a few ideas to try on the next wall and will post pics of it all later today, including the street light:mrgreen:
