I cant see the pics.....

I guess my VW OL doesnt count as custom? On the truck bodies I have done? :confused:

what about Davids purple car?

well the pics arent showing but you can check out that album, yes the VW would count, and im not sure how much David had to do to the Buick to consider it "Body Work"

What do you call that? A PT Smoothzer? Almost looks like those old Twilight Zone eps. where the players have the smoothed off faces. I guess you can call that custom.

Hey now, I've got mad custom bodies. Hei Pao ownz. :cool: I picked up something very very awesome in STL this weekend. Ninja will like it, I'm sure; and AFAIK, Fred ain't got one. :D

Looks good. Yep, It first reminded me of a Funnycar. Maybe add a huge hood scoop and long wing.
Is it much heavier now?

Ninja

yes it is very much heavier now, considering the nearly 1oz of putty and thick paint applied to the body :D the nose is the heavieast as it didnt get putty JUST on the outside, the inside of the bumper and such were filled also, thinking about mounting it on my OL to keep the nose down when crawling steep hills :D

ok, i just got done mounting my BMW X-5 on my 02 MM chassis, the only problem now is i need a set of wheels, narrow front and wide rear, with 0 offset on both, i have wheels on it now but they dont match, the only wheels i have for the rear that have 0 offset are for the 01, so the front are 2.5mm offset, and this just will not work with the 02 chassis :( i might have to mount this body on an 01 just to have a set of wheels to fit it, i have a couple different sets of wheels for 01 if somebody wants to trade stockers :D

Hpi micro rs1/18th scale(or that's what it started life as). It was a handful to control at near top speed...
