Hey guys it's been a while since I've built something, so here we go . I started with a 1/16th scale RC car , the body needed a lot of modifications ,for starters it was too wide so I had to narrowed it and remove the windows. I just got started on the chassis and soon the engine and trans . I've got along way to go so wish me luck. This is all I've got for now, stay tuned.


Thanks,
Leonard

Nice project! Nice change of pace from the promods. Something a sportsman racer can relate to!

What's up guy's I've been working on a few things, I modified an old hood scoop I had lying around ,It was air intake off of a P51 Mustang .
It still needs final tweaking.

Awesome work Leonard. Did you lower the lip on the front wheel opening? Based on the cut down the center of the body, it looks like you removed some material. Did you narrow the body? If so, by how much? The chassis and the scoop look great. I'll watch this one closely.

Cool! A Mustang scoop on a Camaro! LOL The scoop looks like it's shaping up well... It's neat to see something a bit different like it.
