Thumbs up Custom

Daiwai

Firstly, let me welcome you to the Mini-ZRacer.comForums

Regarding your custom body, only one word fits: Fantastic!

An amazing scale replica of a Serpent 1/8th scale Nitro RC racer.
The finish is just beautiful too.
The wheels look scratch made too. What a lovely little custom.
It's not every day that we see such a great, one of a kind scratch built custom on the Forums
I think it's based on a MR-02, judging by the blue plastic under the driver.

Oh, love the iBook too!

For those Members who have not heard of Serpent, they are a Dutch company who build world championship winning 1/8th scale nitro RC racers.
This Mini-Z custom looks just like a small scale Serpent.
Fantastic!!

I'm Blown away, that body must have taken a lot of time and effort!

What thickness plastic did you use?
How did you shape it?
Is that a Jordan Driver?
Have you raced that body?
How does it perform?
Sorry for all the Q's, but that body is pretty exciting!
Thanks!

At first it looked basic, but the more you look the more you see.
Nice work, gives me alot of ideas that I want to try. Maybe something from the Ridge Racer game.

Hi Herman, It's me David!
I am very happy that you all like this body! The Original maker should be very happy when he see this! Because it spend him almost a week time to finish making this body for me and I just do the final touch up! It's gonna hard for me to explain how this body is made because my English is not good, But I can post some production pic for you all as a refrence.
The perfoemance of this body is just excellent for it ideal weight and balance! 32 grams !
