Default Amazing model FJ

Working on a project at work that has me researching scale R/C trucks. Yeah, I know, some days my job rules.

Anyway, like probably a lot of you, Nakman and I ran 1/10 scale electric R/C trucks back in the day. By ran, I mean completed the build to about 90%, at least got all the running gear on and most of the stickers, then run it for a couple days until the speed controller melted down. Soldered the speed controller back together, ran it until it melted down again, etc... for about 6 months until different hobbies became more interesting. Probably girls and real cars.

That industry has come a long way since 1985 (you didn't know Nakman was that old, did you )

Check out this guys work from a local R/C forum. Seriously this guy has skills.

Looks like the paint is about right, too!

But seriously, looks really good.
