Yeah, Autozone...

*Update*

1. Decals complete
2. Interior complete

Now I just attach the body on and let the camera roll!

Okay, here's the mods to Project Black as goes

1. Lifted shell more than 1 inch.
2. Mounted to a different chassis.
3. Added a spare tire mount in rear (with spare tire).
4. Wired driving lights.
5. Painted interior pieces.
6. Attached decals
7. Painted body.
8. Gave it a more weathered + rugged look.
9. Drilled hole for antenna.

In all it's a bit top heavy but I'll see tomorrow as tomorrow (today) is recording day!

Glad to know it made it. I'll get the new license plates mailed Monday.

*Update*

Project Black died right before the Dells Rally. I didn't know about it dying until the day after the Dells when I decided to drain both cars' batteries. The circuit board somehow cooked itself in my car's rear window (MiniNeon II's didn't) and the whole thing just won't work.

So ironically, I would've lost off the line at the Dells!

I destroyed the chassis and removed the body. For the past two months I've been looking for a replacement. Of course I was pricing a rightly sized nitro car but instead of buying the perfectly sized nitro car ($400) I bought an AR.Drone.

So, instead of Project Black becoming a road ripping nitro RC...it's being converted into a flying smart...
