praise the lord for scale model kits at the craft shop and at stores!!!!!

YAY. i got a 1/25 scale 67 camaro Z-28 body for my car and the body is almost the same size as my mini Z. its only like 2 centimeters longer than my viper body. it will work great. HEY NML, this is gonna be my official drag body, it will be really cool with one of your motors in it.

If u wanna go fast and keep the car straight with out wandering, then look for a toe in steering rod.... and then add camber knuckles for some oversteer.....

Yeah 67s!
It's cool when you have a neat LHS.
My LHS has a shrinkwrapper, so they let me open the models to test fit the body on a Mini-Z chassis.

Mas35NYR,
That's the only body I've done for that background. If that's what you meant.
It takes some time to set up the camera angle and lighting to match the background of a photo, I should've shot more bodies but I thought "Why would I want pics of the various bodies with the same background?".

I think he doesn't know that it is a mini-z........so he asks "Have you used any mini-z instead in that same background?"

Thanks MZM, Good Luck with your models!!! Don't forget to post some pics when you finish.

LOL @ Strider... I knew it was a Mini-z since it's the one he entered in the contest. Whoops, I left out the word "other" good catch. You must be an english teacher, because most wouldn't catch that.

Mas...
