Car gets a makeover, and P4x4 office gets another course

So with the help of CKRC and Jason @ RC Crawler, my car has gotten a little more capable. It's night and day compared to it's life as a stock RTR.

The new course is BRUTAL. It doesn't even have cones on it yet. UGET IT's RTR with stock tires (has some suspension mods, better servo, motor) simply can't complete the course.

My friend is putting your cars together. They are going to be sick, he is Mr. meticulous, they will be dialed when he is finished.

I like the use of the old computers

Looks like a kill course. I will have to grab some shots of my outdoor course once the damn snow melts from it.
