I built this baby from the ground up, then purchased all the upgrades, months after months, and had the body painted and detailed. I also installed 2 TLU1 and 1TLU2, had lots of fun wiring all that and placing the wires in a way I liked. I tried 3 different ways before I was really happy, and there's a LOT of wires! There's 6 LEDs on the chassis, 4 on the roof, 4 at the front, 2 at the back, and also 2 that I fitted on a servo heatsink on the front axle.
The only thing I could still add to this car is an interior, but since the windows are dark I never felt it was missing.
I take it out sometimes and go for walks, it's great as its maximum speed is a tiny bit faster then my walking pace. It's like walking the dog but without all the hassle ;)
I don't know if I will keep this car forever, it definitely means a lot to me, but I have a habit to sell them so I can get new ones......
Enjoy the pictures and let me know what you think!
Cheers, Sylvain

I think it looks RAPID COOL!!! You've spent a small fortune in alloy but I can see myself easily getting hooked and doing the same to mine. At least you don't have to carry a poop scoop and a plastic bag on your walks.

Thanks, it did double the initial price, and it took me over a year to get everything. The only upgrade missing is some better steering links. The drive shafts were upgraded to blue one too after the pictures were taken
