Man this pic does not really do this car justice! It's one badass ride! As far as handling goes, no matter how hard i try to flip this body on it's own I can't! It's so stable on the turns and good at high speeds, Now that's something to rival the C5R! This body is so awesome, you wouldn't believe how much lower to the ground it is than the NSX or Supra, yet it's still taller than both of them! A cryin shame Nissan won't make road versions anymore!( model change, V6 NA not straight 6 twin turbo anymore):(

the nismo skyline is very well done! now if it had the sqaure 6 spoke inch ups....black....man, that would be nice.

side shot....see how the wheel/tire loooks small in there...i don't know why but it bugs me.

@ss shot....that is not an nice looking rear end, no way it looks as nice as the cr5;)

your front end picture is nice. the detail in the headlight assmebly is very good.

compare those to these:
front end (http://mini-zracer.com/albums/album86/IMG_0006.sized.jpg)
rear end (http://mini-zracer.com/albums/album86/IMG_0009.sized.jpg)
side shot (http://mini-zracer.com/albums/album86/IMG_0059.sized.jpg)

see the difference in how the wheels fill out the wheel wells...nice to have the rear end drop all the way to the ground making it look that much lower...

the headlight assembly is rather basic though, the nose lights make up for it though...

your camera takes some nice close ups!

I'll admit the ass sucks, but overall it's an excellent handling car on par with the C5R. The wheel wells in front do bug me, i put on some lower springs and a carbon H bar on the back, it's a tad bit lower but it kinda looks better.

Here's a pic!

Here it is Completley dropped (No springs, no H bar spacer, purely for show)

mini z said he has alot of squares on back order...apparently square sold out it's stock and had to ramp up production to put out more...so email mini z and ask him to order them for you. i don't know if they comei n black but some testor spraypaint will take care of that;) . mini z will be out for awhile as he is, uh, busy;)

the actual car looks much nicer than the autoscale...don't know why they enlarged the front wheel well like they did? looks tight on the actual car.

Sure I'll try, but I'll try all the LHS around here. Bad things about my situation is i can't order online.(sucks not having a credit card)

I know, but i don't wanna ruin the handling, just because it's aesthiticly disturbing, maybe when i order the autoscale again,
I'll use the S2000 chassis I lowered for more pics.

Like my Camera? It's great for everything, 4.0 Megapixels and excellent Macro(close up) properties (cost me an arm and two legs) :D (I'm a phtotographer by trade BTW)

that's a cool car... note how kyosho purposely omitted the tamiya sponsorship on the autoscale version... hehehehe

the six spoke inch up would indeed be a good choice for this car...
