      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    wow sounds cool, i mite have to see if i can find that thread if you posted it.

    and just found the box i got the rims in so i got the name they are RC4WD Rok Lox not so sure im going to use them on the fished product, if the hub was just a bit smaller they'd be perfect

    Update: Now the rear end have 4 links suspension set up. Trimmed up the engine bay and installed the servo, still need to mount the upper links on the front axle.

    Project Hilux Land Cruiser 80
    well... i've spend all my free time on this build. The model kit I'm using is a 1/24 Toyota Land Cruiser 80 series made by Tamiya. So far, I've got both axles mounted, but still need some improvement. Now I'll let the pics speak for themself.

    questions, comments, all welcome

    2. sand with 600 (dry)
    3. sand with 1000 (wet)

    5. polish with "3M super duty rubbing compound" (or other semi aggressive compound)
    6. polish with "3M Perfect It machine polish" (or other fine polish) (the more you rub the finner it will be)

    hi guys! im new here from GA, im not really into models but i do midify 1/28-1/25 scale rc car bodies for racing chassis like Mini-Z and xmods and sometimes i even modify model car bodies to fit on them. i am not the best but i want to get better so i decided to join a forum full of the very best. and i would also like to learn to make realistic decals

    a bit about me: im 15 and love old school JDM but my all time favorite car manufacture is BMW, im currently saving up for a E30 M3, 325 or 328 I/IS to build as a autocross car and weekend destroyer but my current car is a 1998 mercury mountaineer with a 302
    here's some on my work:

    Nissan Skyline R34 drift

    when i first bought

    after spraying paint (after sanding it down to bare plastic)

    current (having to rebuild the front lower bumper)

    what it will look like

    Nissan Skyline R34

    not started yet (grey one)

    will look like

    thanks for having such a great community! i can post a build thread for the current R34 if you'd like
