    You can get a comapny or your nearest model shop to mould one for you if they have the stuff for it. I had an impreza before I totaled the shell so I orderedthe new focus model and they done it the only thing though is it cost me £40 but it loks good now

    I have 4 RC cars at the minute. 1 ICE Racer style Astra hatch, a WRC Subaru, a Monster Truck and a Humvee style off road racing truck. They're all electric and hopped up to hell, but I am selling them all now to buy a Nitro racing buggy for next years season, as my local RC club seems to have died a death when it comes to the electric cars

    having just sold mine on ebay I wouldn't consider myself an expert but I know what is and what is not a good car to go for.

    Do NOT go for a V2 car - engines are disgustingly unreliable and you'll spend more time starting it than you will darting it around. (this is what I just sold - nice engine just hard to keep it going)

    A good RC nirto car manufacturer would definately be Smarttec and theres HPI which is one of the best. They share the same chassis and the engines are much better.

    Get yourself a .15 engine with a 2 speed gearbox - or those with a 2 speed on a .12 will beat you
