Are they laser-etched logos on the CVDs ?! Talk about bling

I wonder how much it's gonna cost ...

I think I mean CVDs I've never understood why they're called that though, so I'm probably wrong. I mean the long thin thingys that make the turny-turny from the engine into turny-turny at the wheels. Check out the rear left on this picture:

blimey - you're right! its the CVD bone really, I was looking at the actual CVD joint - getting my excuses in now hehe..

I got some photos of the bones (from a spares box) and couldnt see anything on those - I wonder if these on the car are the final ones with added bling tho?

not bad - but in all honesty Adam was trying stuff out on what is still an unfinished car (in terms of setup etc). He also seemed to be trying to test the cars breaking point by crashing like a maniac!

Certainly looks to be capable package. I'd like to see inside those shocks and see how easy to adjust that slipper is and what range of adjustment it has.

Thankyou for the kind words Jim....'Crashing like a maniac', I think you are being far too generous here... I drove like a #### all day. Apart from practice..... I'll have to get Diane to rig up the loop for practice in future.....

Bling Driveshafts: Yep they do come with the Logo printed on them in the kit...

Undertray & Front wing also in the kit. I've not been running one (undertray that is) as it only turned up on Fri and there seemed no reason to run it indoors.

Setup: The car never had 2 runs with the same set-up on... I seemed to get near in round 3 then the driveshaft pin fell out.... Piss poor prep. I think my tyres were past their best after that and I had no others with me...

Overall, fairly happy with the way it went.

Thats a lovely paint job there adam, who did you that?.......

and I've got one of the 'proper' shells to paint (if jimmy had a smiley, blobbing its tongue out it would be inserted here!), and I must admit, it looks pretty cool, a few little changes here and there but keeps the 'style'.

It appears to have Losi wheels on it. I wonder if HPI will keep it universal this way? It would sure sway me into getting one if my Losi wheels/tyres would fit.

That does look like a bj4 shell, not the same as my D4!!!
Drove my car on its first outing today at the Tiverton meeting, Tq and win . Very impressed with the car right out of the box it handled superb. Loving those gills/vents on the shell.
Cant get pics up yet, but will try again later
