with the mayhem at the beach i didn't get any shot. the wall shots were just for me i always intended to add terrain shots for my showroom. this is just before it's last crash. it has had the wheel inners and arches painted here, looks a little better i think. i took a couple of poser shots, then put it on not near the water, got ready with the camera, gave a touch to the lever then off it went at full speed! tried this a couple of times before it found a tree to run into :) got a couple of shots of the phantom driver most are half cars as it was to fast for me! hope you like them, all comments welcome

safe no power, still not too close to the water the phantom strikes again call the priest now it's levitating just before it makes the break

thanks, but no fun for me! it was driving itself with a dodgy receiver! i haven't driven it for over two years! it's driven itself on the beach on two days and here at the lake once! it drives faster than me

Loving the bug looks great. But it definately sounds possessed. Find the local vicar maybe he will a spare receiver

cheers guys for the positive comments, sharing it on here turns any frowns upside down i hope it doesn't get the taste for blood! i think there might be somthing wrong with me but i enjoyed painting this i even did a bit of wet sanding before clear coat to sooth and age it a bit! it was always going to be run hard though. if it lets me have a go

Great scorcher. Looks even better in action! I see that your profile says you are in France. Whereabouts?

Great post again to see your Scorcher.
Looks like a bit on Herbie II becouse it drive`s himself. Thats a great scenery also.

Great shots , Looks real good . Go on get to the water , As most of the TC'S are doing it . I'm sure they need r/c boats , as they seem to be drowning them .

Mate that looks so good in action! Really captures the 70's with the backdrop and the paint scheme! Awesome!

I really like the paint job on this one, it is great to see these cars done in different liveries and it looks super on the beach.

thanks a lot guys, brings me a lot of pleasure to share with you. @berman being outside brings all my rcs to life, not as much as this one though . @axemandavva means a lot to me that we can have a lively debate, then come back to enjoy rcs together, makes life more interesting and makes tc the great place it is. @oldsterolli i tried to do the best paint i could with what we were given , next one i'll try trimming/shaping the shell first
