I built this car using a body that I got from a Nikko R/C car purchased at a toy store. I completely disassembled the body, cut it out under the hood so it would fit my Yokomo drift chassis, drilled holes for the body posts, sanded it down, fixed the molding imperfections, repainted it, made an intercooler out of plastic sheet, plastic rod and silicone tubing, installed a total of 12 LEDs for all the parking lights, tail lights, side markers, and projector lights, (the 2 main headlights were already in the body), mounted dual 2AAA battery holders for the parking lights, and a 9V battery for the headlights. each light system has its own switch. then I cut the plastic rear diffuser and front bumper off the Nikko's chassis and mounted them to the Yokomo chassis. then I cut metal mesh to put in the hood and fender vents. the wheels are off a Jada toys R/C car, I cut the mounting lug off the backs of each one, then I epoxied a Yokomo brake rotor/hub to the back of them making sure they are perfectly centered.

:blink: Holy *bunch of stuff I can't say on here*

All I gotta say is WOW

That is insane! There is no way thats an RC. That has to be a real car. Lol

Major props for that creation man. That is one sick ride.

Welcome to the site :nice:



(I used to think my car was nice :unsure: )

Oh I belived ya that it was an rc. Lol It just looked so good. Is that a hard body on the Supra?

Now for the 3rd gen 'maro..................


I WANT IT!!!!!! Please gimme spec on that car :nice: I have an 87Iroc sittin in my driveway. I love those camaros.

That saleen is sweet. Looks like it's on a 4Tech. Very nice. Where'd you get them mirrors and how you do the exhaust?

The nissan looks great too. thats a yokomo drifter?

Thank you for the compliment

Ok, thought about it and I think I figured out the Camaro.

I remeber way back when a large scale camaro model, did a lil looking and found one and I think it's what you used,

Monogram 1985 IROC -Z Camaro 1/8 scale model


Thats my best guess. If that ain't it, I'm still lost. Lol

All are very nice cars. you definitly got some awsome skills for this kinda stuff.
it's nice to see some realy scale cars around.

Holy ****, so you're the one who did that?

That just showed up on another site I browse, which is a real car-related forum, and not RC. I wasn't expecting to find out who built it.

Very nice job.

very good research there...lol ok,I built this car from a monogram 1/8 scale static model as you stated. it has a custom made 1/8" thick aluminum chassis, rear wheel drive and 4 wheel independent suspension from an old Team Associated RC10 buggy ,its electric, has a complete interior, a 6 point roll cage,racing harnesses, an autometer monster tach, handmade cowl hood, and lots more...it weighs 6lbs,24" long and runs for about 5 minutes on a full charge...and handles very realistically due to all the electrics except the motor being under the hood...making for a realistic front/rear weight bias... here are some pic of it during the last repaint. the yellow saleen and the nissan are also Yokomo Dift cars. and thanks for the compliments





and interior...

oh yes the mirrors are extras from a yokomo drift car and the exhausts on the saleen are aluminum arrow shafts wrapped with chrome mylar film. attached to the body with a scrap lexan bracket and double sided tape.
