looks SICK hated.. im diggin the orange fade.



those stock shock shaft wipers work allright for the frist run or 2, but then they get alot of built up drit inside and just eat the shafts up... reaaaal fast. i put some sportwerks boots on mine and the shafts life improved 110%.


dont forget to strap those tires befroe you glue them... i made that mistake :cry: :lol:

yeah those shafts destroyers will come off after the break in :lol:

the tires are glued and seem to be holding well. large zip ties did the trick!

for now a super heavy center diff will help to compensate but youll loose alot of off power steering... comming down the straits youll see just how tall and thin tires get :shock:

Looks great! Normally I'm not too much of a fan of orange/yellow... but you made it look good!

Airbrushed, I'm assuming?


I should really look into what classes of racing there is at my track... so I can get my arse handed to me.... Though, my JATO with a 3.3.... :twisted: :lol:



And for the record... while yes, ballooning tires does suck while racing... when bashing it helps get your clod that much higher over the snow! :lol:

Let us know how your racing season goes... and maybe snag some vids or give a driving review... I wanna know as much as possible from a normal person (non-magazine) point of view, before I drop $600 for one of those :lol:

What, a rattle can is the best way to do a fade like that, it's also the easiest to do, short of a single color, you just have to remember to do it dark to light. LOL

My first fader was a Cat yellow and teal green. I shot the yellow first with the green/backer and it turned a really sickly baby vomit/poop color! It was going on a T-Maxx, so I ran it anyway :P :P :lol: :lol: the next attempt was with the same yellow and a purple. I shot the purple first with the yellow as the backer and boy what a difference!
