There seems to be alot of RC car thread recently so i thought i'd jump on the band wagon.
As most of you know i bought a New body for my RC car at Silverstone.
but that's just one more in the collection.
I've a TT-01 chassis and 5 bodyshells at the moment. (waiting on a 6th)
So with a bit of Photoshoppery.
Here they are.
Going back from newest to oldest.
The latest addition is the 2006 BTCC Astra Sport Hatch.
Had a nightmare getting a rims to fit (wrong offset) i was just going to space them out, but that would have created more problems than solving so i ended up buying two sets of the same wheel. cutting out the hub of the 2nd set and bonding them to the back of the first (after removing the centre of the wheel).
As i had a little mod idea when i was thinking about the spacers, i carried it over to the modified rims.
Aluminium drilled brake disks.
The body before that is my Holden Commodore. (AKA Stealth)
Went for the VXR look with the rims.
My first "modded" shell was this Proline Astra Coupe, i scratch built the rear spoiler and painted it a Metalic Blue for the Astra 888 (Coupe) look.
When Zoe bought me the car she also bought the HPI 2003 Astra BTCC body shell, however i made a pigs ear of spraying it, so got myself a replacement and added the HPI rear wing.
Then the shell that came with the kit.
A Calsonic Skyline GT-R 2003
Love this shell, so i gave these rims a set of brake discs too.
Plus they'll look awesome on the new shell i'm waiting for. A Manta B rally car in Blue.
