View Full Version : Got my A$$ out of gear and painted my RC - MCD Race Runner

28th December 2011, 08:10 PM
Had this RC car for just over a year, still in the box nothing done.
So, have a motor, TX and RX and some bits and peices on order.
I then decided about time I painted and cut out the body.

Here's it as it stands, still have to get an exhaust for it...

Looks stunning!

What type of car is that?

As in the tile :D MCD Race Runner.
It's a 1/5 scale buggy. Got a 29cc 2 stroke Zenoha engine coming for it. They also have just released a Short Course truck, so I'll eventually get the conversion kit for that..
Thanks for the comment

Cheers all,
I'm stoked as I need to by new radio set, and decided to get the Futaba 4PK.
Well after hunting around for best price (RC Mushroom) I got a even better deal from Tower Hobbies.
I signed up for their membership ($10, and you get $10 off frieght, so basically get your money back, plus then opens up to special offers)
I also received an email to get $125 off if buying over $400, or $100 off if buying over $300 etc.

When I logged on after buying membership, they also had a deal on the 4PK, where they give you an extra receiver (TX). This is worth about $50, sweet.
Then when adding it to my shopping basket, it went in for $50 cheaper. Even better.
So then I could offered a spare LiFe battery, claim for the $125 discount ontop... So pretty happy with that.

Will do more photos when motor arrives, be next month before I can afford the exhaust/.//

1/5 scale are so menacing in size. I love 'em, just can't afford the pleasure myself ATM. Need a pic with something else like a coke can to appreciate the scale.

Just di my other body.
It was not made for my car, but have seen it fitted and looks good, a few mods for the posts which can be easily reversed. Also tried experimenting with the paint.

You forget just how big they are when you haven't been around them for a while. Nice truck!
