Pretty cool when you can build a 1/10th scale radio controlled version of your actual car.

The model:

Guess which one runs lol. One of these days I’ll get the real one back on the road. As with most projects, lack of time/money. Ran great, insanely fast, but ran out of injector at 16 psi on a T66. A series of “might as well” changes ensued, and well, I never it finished the changes, as this took over:

    HUGE props to Sami over at http://www.rcworld.us – they have some great stuff over there and they will gladly build you an R/C replica of your car provided a body exists. Great purchasing experience!

    Love your 280ZX dude, it looks super clean! I agree with your statement that it is totally cool to build a 1/10th scale radio control model of your own car, I am busy with a HPI Racing Datsun 510 at the moment and I have two 510’s in the garage haha!

    Again, sweet car man!
