    BTW, the body has a bad apint job because I didn't use enough paint. It all chips off. It's my first paint job.

    Lookin good! You've got a good start on hop ups.

    A few suggestions as to what are some good/very essential hop ups:
    - Fuel filter
    - Fail safe
    - Rear shock tower

    Keep it up and keep us update with the progress.

    Knowledge is useless unless one can pass it on.

    Nice job! That's a shame the paint is coming off. Good first attempt though. That's a unique design.

    If I had gone heavier on the paint, It would be fine. The pin stripes were done with special tape from NAPA auto parts.
