what do you mean "i guess its a shelf queen"?

he means that those tires are not good for racing... :rolleyes:

oh,ok. i didnt buy them to race with i bought them cuz i read that the higher the number the less grip, and i wanted to drift without having tape on the tires, and these work great on my kitvchen floor. if i wanna race ill use the stock ones,perfect for my street since there arn't many club or tracks around me.......the closest onewould probably be in daly city, but i cant drive yet (7 more months til i get my permit)

yeah blurry but looks cool. Pretty easy to drift with those 50g's?

its way easy to drift with the 50's, i think a lil too much for linolium (Sp?) but may wok good on my street for some drifting. the stock moto has MUCH MUCH MORE more torque than i expected. i think that 40 or 45 degree tires would be easier to control a drift.

Pretty nice car, but isn't it an iWaver?

I am repaiting one exactly like it. Mettalic British racing green with 2 silver stripes.

i did a few diffrent kind of viper body's but i messed some of them up, also there isnt any tracks near you?

Kevman, i did one that i masked the white racing strips off and painted the rest of it a metallic green it came out nice.

i read about one in daly city, but i cant drive yet (jus turned 15 today!), but i was hoping to get a ride down there sometime.

and i just painted my car a dark metallic blue, i will post pics when i get some batteries for my camera.

I'll post before and after pictures with a real camera... It was quite messy, I had put stickers on the car before and used a knife to scrape them off.. I have to prime it, paint it silver, tape it, then paint it again...

Red with white stripes but its smashed up pretty badly.

I primed the Viper today with Scratch filler and Primer, 2 in 1, after that dries I will apply the Silver, then the tape for the single, offset stripe, and will the add the green, And the 4 layers of clear coat.
