    Thought I'd post up some pictures the car now that it's been racing for awhile. It's a little beat up, but it still goes sweet as.

    lol, yeah it is a bit like a supermarket derby sometimes.

    We had a race meet last weekend, that's what prompted me to take the photos.

    I think we broke a new record, during the last stockcar race of the day 3 cars smoked their motors, only about half the field finished the feature race. Man the hall sure did stink of cooked electrics after that race! Pity I didn't have my camera at the meeting, it was carnage.

    :brains:

    Yeah, a lot of it depends on how you drive.
    Cooked motors and stripped spur gears are usually the result of the way the car is driven (some guys know but just go hard for shits & giggles anyway, others are still learning the trick of trigger control). You won't win races, infact, you'd be lucky your car will last a race meet if you are full noise full time (took me about 6 race meets before I had a car that lasted the whole day).

    Busted steering knuckles, arms, popped dog bones, destoryed rims & cracked tubs and all the other stuff is usally a result of car on car violence. There is always a bunch of screws, clips and broke bits of plastic to be found when we sweep up at the end of the race meet.
    I've been running in this class for 4 years and smashing my car still makes me grin like a cheshire cat! It is the best fun. Only thing I regret is selling my first streetstock station wagon that I made out of an old computer case, it's still running at another club last I heard, and I beat on that one hard too.

    Sign writing is a joke, we got new members that complain all the time about their cars getting damaged. I don't understand why they joined a full contact class of racing if it upsets them.

    Here is a video of it taken by a fellow club member at the RC Race Display, he got a good shot of my car being pushed up onto another car and into the fence. :sweat:

    That's so cool that the bodies are metal. I may have to try my hand at building one of those bodies when I get my own welder here at the house.
