Like the rest of my teammates I also bought me a recycle project last year. Up untill last december I didn’t have a clue what to do with it.
As a member of a young group I personally need more time to cope with the rest of the fellows….. So here I am, posting my pics at last…
This is from where I started:
Basic twotone paintjob
I’m very satisfied with the result. Still got three bodies left to go So there will be more in the future
Bought this PS13 body secondhand last year (yup another recycle project), my plan was to make it a show body but it’s a little rough. So this will be the competition body till i finish my new body (Haven’t bought/received everything yet so it won’t be done in time ;))
How i received it:
After removing most of the decals and cleaning:
Decals still visible after removal
I know Nissan never did this color combination but i only had these colors laying around
Added some details and fixed the paint on the front bumper:
This is my temporary competitionshell for 2011. Its a secondhand body I bought from Owen that I have completely wrapped in two tone glitter vynil. This vynil is very stiff, so I had to do every panel seperatly. Still it has quite a few creases and not so very nice bits, but since its just a bash shell I don’t care.
I have removed all decals and the rear widefenders. I also removed all the tape and glue from the inside. Then I started wrapping it in the vynil. I have also added the usual detailing like wipers, mirrors, exhaust, hoodpins, FMIC and piping and panellines. The last thing I need to do are the front buckets and the spoiler (and maybe a cockpit set..). The spoiler has been made, but it hasn’t been painted and properly mounted yet.
This is one of the three ex-Owen shells that will be featured here soon
Because my Pro4 is my backup chassis i wanted a new esc for my Cyclone so i don’t need to switch the esc everytime i want/need to drift my Pro4.
So i bought a Hobbywing Justock (Here: Link). For it’s price it has some nice specs, sensor port, updatable firmware and it’s small.
Also i updated my chassis because i never liked the way the lipo’s are mounted on normal chassis. Used a spare cyclone lowerdeck that i had laying around and some parts from R2hobbies.
Only tested the new setup once at a battle (Not much driving time) and so far it felt the same as before.
Next step will be a countersteer setup
