Alain,
To make up most of the CORR paint jobs your gonna have to either make the decals yourself or do everything in paint. The AMSOIL paint scheme you've picked should be fairly simple the do just find the logo online and scan it on to decal paper. You can buy decal paper at you local hobby shop. I'm planning on doing a Robby Gordon "Monster Energy" paint scheme so i bought the monster decals that are used on dirtbikes, they're a lil big but I'm gonna do some "creative cutting" to make them fit. As for the paint job it's just basic black. You'll have to create a "fade" to get the white to checkered flag to black effect, but it should still be fairly simple and if not I'm sure there is an airbrush artist out there somewhere who could do it. As for the red stripes I'd just use full scale pinstriping tape or even use the self adhesive stuff they use on r/c airplanes, Hope it turns out cool

Alain if you want it to look like that then your gonna need to modify it for more droop, because as is it doesn't have enough-front or back. It should be fairly simple to throw some longer shocks on it, the problem is gonna be wether or not they put limiters on it.

I'm going to wait until there is a solid release date that is actually met before I even CONSIDER buying one of these. seriously, it was just fine to begin with. they could have released the original concept and had a really kickass product, then gradually updated it. that way at least people would have a product in-hand soon after pre-order. if I'm coming over as being rude I don't mean to be, well don't *really* mean to be, but thundertech had a very good product to begin with that would have looked just fine had it been released. now they have a product that looks marginally better, but in exchange for that the release date has been pushed back more times than I can count. had I been one of the first pre-orders, I would have withdrawn my pre-order after the 4th shipping date delay.

@ Alain
Did you make all those decals yourself? The look very good!
But how did you, what did you use for it to make?

Don't look at the crapy english i'm from Holland

JUst saw the vid on YouTube, and they do move pretty much like the read deal, just that funky sped up thing that all rc seems to have.

If I get one, I'll will wait until the production version is on the market, before I shell out, though. Who knows what it'll evolve into by then.

they look real stable over the jumps and through the turns, I'll give them that much. it would be real awesome to have a bunch of those on an off-road course, with proper elevation change (like, watch WSORR on speedtv. that's what I mean), and a landrush start. that would be a very entertaining race

Thats gonna be the general idea, it racing against other thunder techs but i 'd still like to see it against a t-4 or xxxt i think it would hold its own, if not beat them.
