Here's a few pictures of my new race body..... The Silver Bullet. There are alot of silver colored cars at our track, and the decals will distiguish mine with others while going through lap traffic. :D

Enjoy

just one question, whats with that antenna? (what and why is it?)

I've tried the internal antenna to make the car look to scale, but it gave me too much interference. And then I tried to lengthen the metal antenna with some metal piano wire, but I was still getting interference. I even tried adding extra capacitors on my motors, but it was still the same. Thats when I met Leo Zin and Chris Chow of club28. These two guys took 1st and 2nd at the PN Race in Rialto last year in pro z ( You can see them on PN racing's website ). I told them about the issues i've been having with radio interference. They reccommended me to remove the existing antenna wire on the circuit board and re-soider a longer wire. Thats when I relized why alot of racers in my area had this set-up. All I need to do is use some heat shrink to cover the antenna wire. Now, I haven't encountered any kinds of radio interference :D .

I just used an old airtronics receiver and cut the antenna wire out of it.

If I had some small beer decals, it'd be on there :)

Yeah I like the silver bullet! I know I've been lagging to post the Pink Barbie killer.

If any of you guys that have an old stereo receiver, the black wire antenna off the back of those works great for mini z antennas.

Brotha Rog,

Now I know why I can't find a damn McLaren body anywhere... you have 'em all:p If you can find me one I would be quite stoked.

I busted one of the Enzo wheels in DC the other night so I am looking for a new body until I get new wheels. So far the replacements I have are a narrower offset and I don't like them as much.
