Rms Dart Is Done!

Recommended Posts

Had a few emails asking if it was finished. I just completed putting mine together last night. Looks pretty darned cool running around the track.


I recreated the car more or less as it currently runs in the historic T/A series.


Duplicolor white primer, Duplicolor Chrome Yellow, wetsanded and 5 coats of Future before being waxed. I used BelDecal paper and it worked very well - much better than my previous attempts at decals. The fonts are not 100% correct, but when it is sliding past me on it's roof at Warp 3 it won't be noticeable...


PCS32 Chassis, SCC insert wheels with my inserts, Piranha 21k motor and 27/9 Slot.it gearing. Runs well enough, but not very competitive - mostly weight distribution with the PCS. I made out-riggers and placed weight as low as I could but may end up doing a brass chassis if I can't get it a little better.

Are you sure it's not a production model?

Awesome work.
