Other side with Aerial mount made up, not sure if that will stay?

On a side note, I know it has different batt straps on it! I was playing about with using weighted B44 straps and the STD carbon ones. I need one carbon strap if any one can help??

Is this a shock tower thickness competition!!

Where are you getting these towers from? Atomic Carbon? Fiber Lyte?

Well if it was i`d be winning

Mark the way this is done is take 2 x 3Racing front towers (3mm thick)scuff up two sides using abrasive paper and bonded them together with glue in a vice,let them set together then superglued the edges and use fine grade wet and dry paper to shine up the edges it can take awhile depends on the finish you want.

Andy (Thanks to little chris for showing me this )

Now this is the tread I'd been hoping for! Since I plan to paint a new body soon, I'd been wanting to see pics of finished cars for ideas.

My 501x...







Bodies: Two beaters, one brand new 501x, and one custom painted with underbelly and matching wheels. I have a 511 body coming that I plan to use, so I'd actually like to sell the new 501x and custom painted set (with wheels), so if anyone is interested, PM me. The custom painted body set has never been run, and the pinstriping is chrome. It's a pretty nice looking deal, I'm just not into green.
