I painted my body green, the exact same color as my real Honda Civic.  And painted all the windows black.  Let me just say, it looks friggn' awesome.  These pictures don't do it justice.  I only used a few of the decals off the decal sheet.  I thought it looked too cluttered with all the images and logos everywhere.  So I just did the window trims, the front grill, and the tail lights.  It looks nearly stock and not riced out at all.  Just the way I like it.  I'll try and get some better pics up soon.  I got these off a digital camcorder and imported them through my video card and then took snapshots of the video.  Some pics are blurry and resolution isn't all the fabulous, but here they are anyway.

Mercedes-Benz CLK-GTM 150mm Body

My latest work of art consists of HPI's Merecedes CLK GTM body and a full set of unmounted TRC foam tires.  The body was my first attempt at two colors and as you can see, the black bled a little bit through the tape.   I used some crappy masking tape and should have used something better.  Oh well.  The silver looks better than I could have hoped though.  And a silver Mercedes just seemed to be the most appropriate.  The foams aren't actually mounted in these pics, I still have that to do.  In fact the rear wheels aren't even attached to anything.  This is because I modded the rear rims to fit the 25mm wide TRC donut.  In doing so, the rims fit very, very sung on the inner wheel hub.  I was afraid if I pushed them on just for the pics, without having mounted the foams, I might not be able to get them off.  I pushed them on halfway and such was the case.  So you just have to pretend that the rear differential is there and that the car is actually functional.  Except I took the motor out too.  So here it is.

My Nissan 350Z Pro-Line 140mm Body

After I did some serious damage to my Civic body, I decided to get a new body and start from scratch.  Pro-Line make some of the best bodies for R/C cars and even thought they don't make as many bodies for the Micro as HPI does, what they lack in quantity they make up for in quality.  When I saw their 2003 Nissan 350Z, I thought that car looks friggn' sweet!  So  I bought one from RC Boyz on e-Bay (great people to work with, by the way) and the body arrived on my doorstep two days later.  I originally wanted to paint it the same color as shown on in all the pictures for it, but I couldn't find that cool gold color paint so I just did it blue.  The pictures below are the results.  Click on the file size that corresponds to how fast your download speed is.  The HPI Micro RS4 is the coolest R/C car in the world.

PIC OF THE WEEK!
