OK, I got a new Nissan Xanavi and a new Nissan Calsonic. I got one for me and one for a friend as a gift. I originally intended to keep the Calsonic cuz its blue, which is my favorite color. But looking at both of them next to each other, I think the Xanavi looks cooler. So, now I think I will keep the Xanavi for myself. What do you all think?

Maybe I'll keep them both and get him a Microsizer....:p

I have to agree with William, keep them both and get him a microsizer.

And if he complains, keep the microsizer too.

Thanks for the input guys. I think I'm going to stick with the Xanavi and give him the Calsonic. He's best man at my wedding and I want to be able to race him at the track when were getting away from our wives. So, I can't give him a cheapo knock off if I want to keep the race fair. But I may just add a hotter motor to mine, and bearings and not tell him! :p

Alright, so I took out the Xanavi and as I was wrestling to get the body on, I snapped off one of the side mirrors! :eek: Now what do I do? I tried super glue, but it melted the plastic and left a gooey mess. Damn! This bites!

This would never have happened had you followed our advice. :)

Seriously, after seraching for glue and mirrors in the forum search here, I found this thread...
http://www.mini-zracer.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1143&highlight=glue+mirrors
which mentions something called CA glue and something else to try if that doesn't work.

don't sweat it, your mirror was destined to come off anyway. :)

CA = cyanoacrylic = superglue

and it didnt work. maybe some Testor's model glue? Anyone used that? Or hot glue? I think I have a glue gun lying around somewhere...

I use Tamiya Cement, made for model cars. It melts the plastic then it dries. It works great on everything from broken bit char-g spoilers, to 1/10 lexan bodies.

hot glue definatly won't work, it may hold it on there for a little bit, but it will look like crap

Well, I guess model glue it is. Is Testor's OK, or do you prefer the Tamiya brand for some reason?
