Well, I spent a better part of the day working on converting my TA02 chaissis over to a Rally car duties. I went with a 04' HPI Impreza WRC body, and tried painting with some of the Duratrax paints even though I have heard of bad reviews. Overall I was pretty please with the paint. I started out with candy orange and proceeded to base coat it with black. I was not sure how it was going to turn out but it changes colors from blackish brown, to orange pearl to a deep black. I think it turned out great even though my patience was running out towards the end as I started rushing to get the all these stickers applied. :shock: I also added some custom made mud flaps, and reworked the shocks to get it to sit lower and added appropriate wheels and tires.

Thanks fellas! Rally cars are a hoot to drive around...

Got a few action shots this past weekend. Not my best action shots but they will have to do.
