    Default Roofchopper SWB

    Hi. Finally got round to taking some pictures of the amazing paint job on the cage before it gits used and starts loosing its shine. Think a lot of will know this car. Believe it belonged to Cookie then Jim the cosmic goth and then 1wheel. And now has landed up with me. Came 100% sorted and ready to go just didn't come with the TX but Si (coalminer) came through for me with a compatible Futaba hand set and wanted nothing for it. Truly a prince among men.

























    Have tried to show the colour and the way it catches the light, truly EPIC !!! And the carbon fibre under tray is awesome, this isn't plastic wrapped in carbon wrap it's the real deal. Tried to be a good boy and not take it out just after it had rained but I failed in a epic way and got a little bit dirty !!

    1st time I've had a Scott Finley ProMX 305 always run OBR's in the past and I can't believe the low down punch with it and hasn't been tuned yet as still being bedded in. Car is currently geared at 18/56 but this will be swopped out for 20/54 set up and use the low down grunt.

    One thing did hit home when cleaning the Rail is how tightly packed in everything is, not a lot of room to work (was a bit of a shock after running the Losi 5ive where there is enough room to swing a cat) so I believe that when it comes to the rebuild stage reference pictures will be a good idea.

    Still waiting on the lipo charger so can get it fully charged and start enjoying it.

    Good evening Mr Bass,

    Firstly please let me apologise for the short sighted and bigoted nature of Mr BajaDre and please let me assure you that not English people paint with a stereo typical brush of a persons cultural background and up bringing as he has.( Must be a Daily Mail reader !)
    It is just plain rude. That's just not polite.
    Anyway with regards to the cleaning service you offer for Sand rails (which I've heard sterling reports on), I do have a small problem.
    Have entered the post code for the delivery address which you gave me has been a little vague.
    I you could Photoshop a arrow on the appropriate caravan in the link below that would be very helpful.

    Many thanks

    thank you for your kind words sir and let me just add that I have written to my solicitor regarding the nature of MR BAJA DREs comments towards my fellow pykie brothers and sisters and im sure he will hear from said solicitor in the near future .... hes such a narrow minded person with no regard for the brothers who tarmacked his garden instead of his driveway by mistake .... as for my postcode sir I think you have written it down wrong as I live on the tenth floor as seen in my friend Pauls photo above, so if you want your rail cleaned by a true and trustworthy pykie I suggest you sent it to said site .... thank you .....
