I think the bright orange sounds good, it'll be a little different from the usaul red, black, blue colors (not that I have a problem with those colors, some of my favorite colors!LOL), maybe have some yellow stripes, the black wheels sound like they would go good with the orange. As for the RG engines, I have a few of them & have had only minor fit problems, nothing that a little sanding won't take care of, the worst thing I've had was on the 815" P/M Ford engine I bought, a little prob with the upper oil pan fitting flush against the engine block, just sanded down the sides on the block till it fit better, haven't had any probs with the RoadHammer Hemi or the 815" Next Gen Semi-Hemi that I got.



The fitment problem you described was the main problem I had with this one. Same exact spot. I did the same as you a little filing her sanding there and it fit like a glove. Just between that and the few other fitment issues it seemed excessive. like I said I have done a few of these in the past nothing cast with this much "room for adjustment" if you will lol. I made it work cant complain I suppose. and besides after its all done it is going to look bad a%$, :) Thank you for looking dragracer I do appreciate your time.

I know this is a model car forum but I wanted to show you all of my True outlaw 10.5 tire mustang. This will also be my next subject. I know it doesn't look super special but its got an all aluminium bullet with n2o kits on it,. No motor pics sorry got to keep the competition guessing. I think this one will be fun to build but not until the turbo mustang is complete. Thanks for taking a look.... Nick

LOL I meant to say 4 N2O kits I dont know how I always leave just one little thing out but its important . it even reads right without it, just like my normal mistakes.

2 fogger kits.....one plate.... and a viper which most of you im sure know is like another fogger kit on the inside of the intake runner mounted from behind. just wanted to fix yet another omission / mistake in my writing.Thanks guys.

Hey Forgot to ask a couple of things in my earlier post. I'm getting to the point where things are going to start coming together here pretty soon. I hadn't even started thinking about this until just now. PAINT? IM thinking a bright orange with Powder coated black wheels. I have a set of drag lites you can see in some of the mock ups. really though the rear tires are a little large to fit the 10.5 inch rules. I could say they are 10.5W's which they actually make im sure you all know this they measure about 12 to 13 inch tread section. Even most outlaw tracks don't allow these tires anymore and enforce the true 10.5 inch rule. I've been looking at wheels on micro nitro the spindle mount pro stars but not quiet sure what size rear tire or wheel width to get to match the look im after. I guess after all the work Im putting into this I feel like the car deserves something nicer than just a set of drag lites. What do you all think??? Also Color suggestions or paint schemes??? Im open to anything just has to look clean nothing to insane if you will. And I think either way I want to go gloss black wheels what ever scheme we decide on. Thanks for all of your help. I hope Im not bothering all of you with my looooong post. Just want to make sure you have the whole story. and a little extra also lol :D

Thanks Nick.........


Great job so far Nick! Keep those progress pics coming.

As for color, I like the orange idea. Not sure if you have an airbrush, but if you do you might want to think about a HOK Tangelo or Sunrise Pearl. Both are really nice bright oranges that House of Kolor mixes. You can get them from Coast Airbrush in a 2oz bottle for on the cheap. Then you can use an automotive clear in a paint bomb and clear it and be fine.

Say on your 10.5 tires, you may want to look up a couple other threads on here. We have a forum member that casts rubber 10.5 tires and from what I am seeing posted they are really good.

If that is something you decide to do, just send MicroNitro the tire and he can cut them to fit. This way you don't have to worry about getting the wrong size. :) Jim will take care of you!

well I normally like to keep it on the down low but working on a real turbo set up right now anyways so heres the details. you all should feel special i NEVER speak of such things. lol i know its just a motor. Dart 572 all aluminium all the goodies. Speed tech systems mostly lol sorta a concoction of just really way too much nitrous. Pro mod glide survives about half a season hence the turbo build right now and time for models ;) Really need a lenco thats in the works also. Then after I completely over power the car Im sure Ill find the first guard rail that wont move when I try and park in it. lol HOPE NOT.

Thanks for checking the stang out

THANKS for the info on the tires. I think Im going to definitely get in touch with him. Probably both wheels and tires. Thanks for the information. It will help tons with the correct stance of the mustang.

Here are some other pictures of the upper intake in progress. Still VERY rough but after I get to filing an hour or so she will be looking shiny and smooth. just part of the process. Its kinda neat to think something rough like this is actually very close to looking polished and great given the right treatment. Ill make sure the finished product gets up by tomorrow night. No paint either just aluminium and polishing work. We will see. Thanks for looking......... Nick

Great to see some better pictures of this one, it looks amazing so far. I like the intake, you've done and turbos look good too. I will keep watching this one, keep it coming.

Sounds good... That lenco is a heavy pig but they are pretty bullet proof, lol when it's time to take it out you will definately miss the glide.

This is true... Im just hoping it will put up with my everlasting search for more cubic inches. Trust me I do love my glide / glides especially with the 10.5 tire. technically speaking a nice soft launch is very helpful when trying to harness all the power with the small tire coming off the line. If slamming the rear bumper into the ground and smashing my eyeballs into the back of my head each pass is soft. comperativly it is soft in drag terms compared to blasting the tires off with such a low 1st gear and that equals going nowhere... sooooo it back to school for me in clutch managment and Ill be good as new. riiiiight... ill get all sorted out though. Thanks for the comment. ill keep you posted.

Hey again Here are a couple of mock up pics to give you an idea of where Im heades. Remember still no turbos yet. also no cold and hot side plumbing. LOTS of work ahead . sorry for the slow progress. Still having fun! Ill keep eveyone posted. Thanks for looking NICK....

PS nothing is in finished form just set up for the next step and check clearances. AND believe it or not the headers are actually equal length.

Just a few more mock ups. Not much room in a normal length car. Kinda makes you realize how even a 1:1 car is a work of art when it comes to jamming all this gear into a almost normal sized engine bay. let me know what you think and thanks for looking..NICK

I liked what he had. Thank you so much for the info. If the ones I ordered make it here before I am ready for mounting Ill decide then which ones to use. It seems like Iv'e been scratch building a lot on this project. its actually a lot of fun looking at all the different shapes and parts I have and figuring out what to trim here what to add there to make what I really want. Having more fun with this model than any other. Ill have pics up tomorrow I even just made my first fabricated rear end housing all metal talk about tiny tiny folding and building. looks great.

DO you know anyone that can chrome anything this small? I have several metal parts that I would like to have really chromed. It never seems to look real with current paint methods unless I don't know about something.

LASTLY thank you for the complement on the 1:1 fun isn't exactly the word on launch. more like "hang the F&%^ on and please be track in front of you after the sky goes away.... The best one ever was when I finally came down I was luckily still in my lane but past half track. I had no idea what was going on what happened to the track and why was it so short???? I actually had been on the bumper past half track lol!! probably should have died lol. It is a blast once you sorta get used to it its never the same ever.

Thanks again for looking and stay tuned. Lots of updates hopefully everyday if I can help it. Thanks all for looking and comments.... Nick
