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

The White Car : Unbuilding an R34 GT-R Super Taikyu

After the first test, the plan was to use a crew chief, and prep shop in Wisconsin to help us out with the car.  During 2005, the car went out to a few events, a couple of SEMA shows, and a couple of time attack events. I will eventually post up a couple of pictures from the 2005 events and some results.
Time Attack at Buttonwillow

Right after the time attack, the plan was to strip the car down to check it out, get it repainted, and build it up to World Challenge specifications. Most of the pictures are from my camera phone, so the quality is not the best.

We did an ad for NOS Energy drink.
For the NOS ad, we just hung everything in place, tossed in a seat, and did some shots with the bare chassis.
Loaded up, headed to K&W Autobody
Just looking at the pictures, really doesn't show how much work, or how many parts you have when you take a car down to what I call "parade rest".  Now the white car was ready to be built up to World Challenge specs.

P.s: what do you guys think about the new layout, I've been getting told that its "too busy" and should go back to something more simple.

I like more simple. I think it is too busy. I really don't dig the rainbow colors and the birds. They don't do anything for me.
