Wow! Did it come looking that silky silver or did you do a custom paint job on it? What's your ebay User Id, so I can see the other pics (if you posted any with the auction).

Nice car!

I've got three working chassis... AMG CLK, Purple Peugeot, and Ferrari 355. I'm running a Mini-Zracer motor in the CLK, a BB Squat can with a Stock Arm in it in the Peugeot, and a Megatech Torque/speed motor in the Ferrari (the reason I ordered another Mini-Zracer motor -- I don't like MEGATECH!).

As for other bodies... I've got too many (BUT I like it!). The D RX-7 FC3S, a Lancer Evo ? (with the decals on it), a D2 CLK, a red Viper, a Blue Viper, a Loctite NSX, and an MR-S body that I can't seem to get to fit properly on my chassis (HELP?).

Oh, I also have a Mercedes F1 (Mika) with a Z-Speed in it.

I've been afraid of putting on a turbo on any of them, but with the motor this site makes, a turbo isn't needed and I have all the speed I can handle inside the house.

That's what I have now... who knows what's next?

Hope that link works, but that's where I got the motor... you'll note that it is currently SOLD out... actually, he put it on pre-order on the 4th (today for me yesterday for you), and in a couple of hours, they sold out -- of the PRE ORDER!

I don't like the Megatech motor because of the problems my brother (Crusader 4x) had on his F1 -- he told me about them, but I cannot say I was a witness to it.

Thunderer!

Hey I thought you had a Trueno too??? What kinda problems are you having with the MR-S? I would not mind getting one but if there are problems then maybe I'll pass.

Looking for used bodies especially Truneo's, MR-S's and maybe a Vitz.

That FC3S looks good. Too bad I'm into Toyotas.

My Poor MR-S

MaukaRunner...

For some reason, I cannot get the body length of my chassis to fit into the wheel wells of the car. I've tried the mid-length setting, but it just doesn't want to work. I haven't given up on it, and I'll let you know how it goes.

Why don't you get one and "help me out!" LOL.

Sorry, I forgot about the "used" Trueno body that I got. Its a candidate for a painting... maybe customizing if I get brave, but I'm not too talented in that dept. You should see the BUTCHERING I did last night cutting wheel wells out of the lexan Modena body for my Micro RS4.... GEEZ! My motto is... "If you want to do it right, get SOMEONE ELSE to do it for you." LOL.

Is the MR-S a Squat or Mini Power?

Its a Mini-Power body. When I get everything in there, there's always something wrong. Wheelbase too short, motor won't fit under back end... something.

The Mini Power should be fine - you are using the long WB setting, right?

I'll try it again. I think that the last time I tried the long WB setting, I had problems getting the back end of the motor within the shell... but as I said, I'll try again.
