I AM UNWORTHY! I AM UNWORTHY!

seriously dude, if it wasn't for the wheel nuts and the sitting on a wood table in some of the pics, I'd ask the mods why this hadn't been moved to the 1:1 section, because it could EASILY pass for a 1:1 street/strip gasser. this is seriously I'd say one of the most scale rigs on this board, bar none. I mean, unless you know what to look for, you actually have to take it apart to find something that hints at the RC nature of this beast. well, that, and if you see it doing a full throttle launch and carrying the front end a few inches in the air all while there is nothing in the driver seat, that would be a clue

I mean, holy crap dude, even the bare chassis looks like a 1:1 chassis until you look at where the transmission should be!

after all that praise, I did find one little touch that I think is kinda necessary. wires going to the faux battery on the passenger side firewall. doesn't do much good without them

Thank you Tim. That is a truly awesome '57. I just want to know how you made a Parma body look so damn good. Everything else is top notch too!
