I like the darker blue of the Associated! Plus , I already installed them! LOL! I move fast!

Do you think it would be alright if I started my own post with a little better layout of my pics and mods?

Also, did you see the pic I edited in to my last post?

Mostly, to layout pictures with better descriptions. Plus, I am not done yet and i would like to group everything together so it's easier to edit and keep track of! Also I got laid-off and have some free time on my hands to make it look pretty! lol! I do construction!

It's just something than ran through my head while I was under my mom's Corvette changing her hydraulic clutch system. It was so frustrating, I had to think of something else. The thing rides like 5inches off the ground and even though all four corners were blocked up it was still a tight spot!

I like the shape of the blue washers you used for the screw heads! Too bad they won't fit the titanium screws is used!

I dunno what to say.

I will say that the GRP "Tuned" .21 will most likely be my next choice of engine. From what I've seen & heard from couple of friends, I'm convinced, I think the GRP is a great engine, regardless....

I run GRP engines now and I don't plan on switching! I think their awesome engines, I would recommend them to anyone!

Here's an update on my 8.5 project!

I got the Mugen MBX6 body today, and actually got it to fit!
I had to bring the side guards in a few more millimeters and shave the leading edge of the splash guard down about 1mm.

Unfortunately, I misjudged the engine cut out and a I should have cut the sides along the edge of the mold instead of the cut-line.
The good thing is that I got it to work and I at least know what I have to do for the next one.
I also have a templet to work with for the front end cuts and the body post holes.

I am going to go spray bomb this one white since it will only be a practice body!

The "spray bomb" came out a lot worse than I thougth it would!
Only I, could screw up an all white paint job! It was going good
until I added the tint. Oh well, it's just a beater! The next one will be cut better. I never thought an 8.5 could look so skinny!

HyperGRP that is really nice work! I don't know about others, but I really appreciate the model end of RC as well as racing end. That means I probably more drawn to someones creation than to the latest and greatest from a box. Not to say the latest and greatest is not cool, because it is.

When I get more time to look over your stuff, I'll probably post more. I have been covered up with work. Its pretty bad when you can not even work on your own

Either way, very nice job!!!

The same high speed cutter that's pictured with the milled out front brace!
I think it's on page 5!
