Looks good, what did you use to color the G10 parts?
RIT Dye with boiling water. The shock even took the color too. I put some MR02 Blue parts in as well but they ALL shriveled up like a shrinky dink.

Davey, the car looks great. I will be using the Rit Dye also, this is starting to take me back to my old 12th scale days and I'm loving it.

I hoping to get one asap so I can get it ready for the PNWC in NJ. I have the tiny KO receiver, just need to buy a esc and servo.

Yes, but it certainly isn't ASF...


Ed- We'll do our best to get the cars out in time for you to prepare for the PNWC. As far as I hear from PN, the last bits of hardware are slated to arrive tomorrow, so after that I just need to start putting together kits, finalize prices, and get this show on the road.

Sup Cody,



Take notice to the micro crystal in this pic. My Spektrum SR3100 is on its way back from repair and wanted to take pictures of a finished car. The reciever in the pics is a 75mhz GWS horizonal pin version. The decased Spektrum SR3100 will be what I use though. Its the same reciever I used last time as well. See you on SAT!!

Wow, I didnt even see the crystal. I see you also have taken off the reciever plugs and directly soldered them to the reciever.

Which do you prefer. The ASF board or the ESC/RX?

I think if he preferred the ASF board, he would have one on the car

I prefer a seperate ESC/RX over the ASF board. If anything happens to one, you can easily replace just the part that has a problem.

Hi Guys,

I have been racing Mini-Z's for quite some time, but have never built a car from a chassis like this before, and the idea is beginning to appeal to me. Is there some guide or a link that I could take a look at to get some detailed information? Any help is appreciated...

Failing that, here are some questions:

I'm thinking about what parts I'd need to get started building an MRCG. Let me know if I'm forgetting anything here:

Lexan body of some type (I'd like to give a Lexan body a shot), including a mounting system for it.
Motor
Wheels\bearings\tires
DPS\shock
Electronics
Knuckles\springs
Diff

Anything else? Remember, you're dealing with a complete noob in terms of chassis building...

Then there's electronics. Sounds like you can either use an ASF 2.4 board or buy your own individual ESC\RX. EMU makes the point that separate units will allow easier problem isolation and troubleshooting. However, if one uses a different variety of ESC\RX, would it be compatible with my existing EX1-UR with ASF module, or would I need something (?) else?

Any other tips\thoughts for a first time chassis builder? Thanks guys,

ianc
