    Wow, you can really drive that thing. Where have you practiced in the past? Do you have track/race experience? Is that too much of an off topic question?

    You're being kind... LOL
    I was telling Al a few weeks back that the last time I raced was back in about 86 and it was 2wd buggys. So the only racing I've done at all aside from the Armature Alley driving school was our race the other night. I'm determined to get my lines cleaned up in the coming months... the good laps I did the other night felt fantastic. I have to train myself not to get heavy on the throttle when the heat's turned up.

    This photo should take care of two things:
    1. This is the result of me coming into corners heavy
    2. Shows the new Rally lights pretty well.

    Lights look great! And did their job admirably! Hopefully next time I'll have the time to give them a closer inspection.
    And I agree with Matt; You driving is getting really good in a hurry.

    Thanks Matt, yep same basic technique as we spoke of yesterday, just black on the inside, gold on the outside and transparent green topcoat... looks better with age I think

    Had a blast with this again today, really great little car.
    I'm switching out the chassis on this one now to the M03, still will perform just as well but the M05 is a bit wasted under here when there's a M03 (that really only fits under a mini) here loaded and ready to go.

    I'm blowing the dust off of the Fiat Abarth and running it as my new M05 FWD race car, hasn't been run since the mag article and deserves some track time!

    Nope, no video on this one... it's retired to the new JKRC scale shop (coming soon to Armature Alley. It has taken some serious lumps so I thought it would be neat to have a permanent car in the shop when it's lit up.
