Torque steer is very common on pan cars and such... I just slack the accelerator for a second and gun it again, then it is fine... just something to get used to... nothing unusal

well here's mine...

p.s.
the body mount for the ae86 was 'loosened a bit' so that the front end would have a much lowered look...

thanks... arch...

but looking closely... i think the body was molded er... unevenly... funny as it may sound, the front left fender (passenger side - remember this is a jap version so the driver side is where the japanese writting is) droops lower than the front right fender side... odd... kinda sad

on the other hand i found out that the body has holes for lights

saw your yellow id fd3s rx7... the stock rims are a bit offset, so i figure you can get the wide rear rims and narrow fronts with some offset to fit in it...

Does anyone know if Mini-z has the Skyline MA-010 wheelset in stock yet... I like those rims on the AE86... a lot nicer than the 12? spoke wheels in the chassis set.

Well of course like last year I was out of the country when I got my Mclaren. This year of course again I'm in another country when I get a new 'HOT' product. I couldn't wait this time. I had the wife open it up and run it!

Her first impression was completely stock. She loved it. She then switched out stock tires with 8deg and was very impressed. I could hear it over the phone...SWEET!!!!

Had her take a few shots with my custom painted R34. Hellagressive look!

My CLK Arrived

Here's my AWD with the CLK Body. Like allot of others, it's sits a little high in the front for my taste, but it still looks sweet. I'm hoping to put up a small track this weekend and actually drive the thing. I'm out of space so both my RCP's are boxed up right now. But not for long......

I guess it is time for a new updated image. With the modded stock motor, and the Kyosho MT 30d tires all around it is like it is on rails. Every time I tweek something on it, and drive it it is even more a blast than the last time. I did move the spacers on the front knucles to the bottom to lower it some, makes for a very tight handling car. I can turn inside less than a 2 foot area now without spinning it around. And at last my 350Z body that fits (the side mounts were already set up higher for fitment to the MR02 chassis), with the crystal up very close to the windshield.

Well here is a pic of the chassis only. I haven't had time to put a body on it yet, possibly tomarrow though.

The vauxhall is a good looking body.
