Introducing: The Meanest Looking Custom Built Skyline R34 GTR 1/7th Scale Remote Control RC Car

Passion, It's the thing that drives us to achieve. The push we feel to dare to dream something, ideal, and then manifest that vision into reality. For anyone who's ever fallen head over heels into an engine bay, or body work, or getting your car track ready, YOU KNOW that feeling that drives you to customize and make things as you feel they should be. Your intuition is second to none.  RC Car Skyline GTR R34 Custom Built Remote Control Car This GTR is no different from any of the other incredible cars featured on this site ( just look around; there's red ones , blue ones , silver ones , white ones , black ones ) - except for one, small, detail. - It's 1/7th the size! You wouldn't be able to fit inside it, but it still rips around like a GTR should, and is a whole lot of fun to drive I'm sure, and the customization on this build is phenomenal.  Nissan Skyline GTR RC Car Rear End Spotted on the RC sub, user XJuggernaut101 shared their build story with us of ho

RIPS FED has a mixed bag at the 4 n rota south island champs

I'll keep it short and sweet as we are still getting to grips with what has happened in Christchurch since we left.

We put the FED on the Link G4 display at the car show and came away with some trophies which I was very surprised to get as there were some serious dedicated show cars on display: 

On the Sunday we went to the Ruapuna circuit to drag race on the back straight, we had no idea what to expect so
detuned as muchg as possible for the first run and netted a 7.6 @ 172mph.
The track was very smooth and flat and I was looking forward to another run but we found water in No2 cyl and now that I have the head off I have found the head gasket we used in our haste to get the motor back together for the last meeting was not up to the job, with very low power it gas axed its way from No2 cylinder to the water jacket, our day was over but we did still get the quickest time of the day.........

Warming Up
Almost ready for the first run of the day
Discussing our options........ we established we had none and had to just leave the car on display for the rest of the day, absolutly gutting after traveling all that way for just 7.6 seconds:

The culprit, an inferior type of head gasket which I will never use again
