62 PyRO STOCK
 
3 Attachment(s)
Well,here's my entry if the weather holds out and if I can find someone local with a radar gun or gps they want to risk .:mrgreen:
It's an RJ Speed pro-stock.
I'll be running an EZRUN 5.5t brushless.
I'm hoping to get either a 2 or 3 cell lipo for it.Just depends on finances.
I still have to decide on a paint job and get that done.
I ordered some new hubs and tires for it also.
It's not much of a build thread so far but I'll try to keep you all posted on any updates.

STANG KILLA SS 10-19-2009 07:19 PM

DUDE that looks wicked.
that motor looks like a BAMF!
billet servo mounts NICE!
i say go for a jegs paint job.
and get busy on that bug!

I should have known better than to have that in the background.:lmao:

w00t finally some competition in pro stock.

Colby 10-19-2009 08:51 PM

Let me know how you like that EZ-run BL setup. Im going to end up putting that system in my rc10t3. VERY nice looking car too BTW. Cant wait to see which route you go with paint "thumbsup"

Not to highjack the thread. I had one in my slash with 3 cell lipo and it just flew!!!!!

62PYRO 10-22-2009 06:56 PM

Well a really small update.Got a couple of things in the mail today.Went the same route as stang killa.Aluminum hubs and 3-1/4" tires.

http://img34.imageshack.us/img34/575/dragcar003.jpg

Also decided that I didn't want to go with the kit body.Ordered a pro-mod body that's a little more fitting to my (lack of?:mrgreen:) style.:lol:
I'll post a pic of it when it gets here.:twisted:
I think stang will probably have an idea of what it is.:wink:

STANG KILLA SS 10-22-2009 08:26 PM

looks like a well thought out setup :lmao:

ColquittCustom405 10-23-2009 08:40 PM

Bullshit its not much of a build thread. The motor/ESC combo gave me wood. I agree paint that biznatch JEGS color scheme! Good luck dude.

Well,a little update.
Got the body cut out and mounted.Just need to do a little finish work on the cuts.
I was going to make a new chassis but,the G10 fiberglass I bought didn't like being waterjetted.It wanted to delaminate the material.:cry:
That worked out though.It was designed to widen the track width but,after getting the body mounted it would have been too wide.This is about the widest I can go with the tires I have on it.The rears want to rub the top of the quarter panels if I go any lower so,this is as low as I can get it.
Now I just need to get it painted as soon as I can.I'll have to do it at the shop since the weather won't permit it at my apartment.

STANG KILLA SS 10-31-2009 06:31 PM

sweet!

pics of waterjet destroyed G-10?

paint paint paint!

Stormin2u 10-31-2009 06:48 PM

I sure like the looks of your new toy Pat. I've been eyeballing RC Drag for some time now myself. I'd be interested in your fun meter rating after you've had this bad boy down the track a few times? "thumbsup"

Paint won't happen until at least Tuesday.I have an eye appointment on Monday.

Here's a pic of the axle plate he tried to cut.Look close and you'll see where it caused it to bubble when it delaminated.:cry:
I'll try to get a better pic.The camera didn't want to cooperate this time.

Well,for what it's worth it's painted.:|
Between the problems with cutting a new chassis and paint issues,I think I've come up with a name for it.
How does "Miss Fortune" sound?:lol:
Anyway,I still had a few problems with the second try at the paint due to operator error.:oops:It turned out fair but this wasn't the paint scheme I originally had in mind.Oh well.
I am going to take a couple of the bodies I have around and practice a little to see if I can get the hang of the faskolor paints.After that I'll do a new (same body style) one and take my time and do it right.
On to a few pics.I'll try to get some outdoor when the weather wants to cooperate.

jeepjames87 11-07-2009 01:18 PM

Looks Great! 8)

Sharkey 11-07-2009 02:31 PM

agreed, looking good.

Code454 11-07-2009 03:39 PM

I like the name you came up with and i acutally dont mind the look of the paint good job, cant wait till you see what you come up with after figuring out your paint prob"thumbsup"

STANG KILLA SS 11-07-2009 03:51 PM

Sweet

62PYRO 11-07-2009 05:46 PM

Thanks for the positive comments."thumbsup"
I really wanted different graphics.These were planned for the bug (when I ever get it finished).The overall paint scheme is a lot darker than I had pictured in my (twisted) mind.Next one will be a lot lighter colors.

62PYRO 11-13-2009 08:57 PM

Not much to update.
It's looking like I'll have a hard time getting my run done in time.According to the 7 day forecast this morning,rain for the next week.:cry:
I still haven't had the money to get a radar gun either.For some reason,I can't seem to get anyone I know to risk their gps unit.:mrgreen:
Oh well,I'll still post up a video when I do get a chance (next spring?:lol:) to get a run in.
In the mean time,I had my waterjet guy cut me a little something for it.

I think I'll need it with the motor I have.:twisted:
I still need to make the cross pieces and run it through the blast cabinet after I get someone else's project done.
I'll keep this updated as I progress.

STANG KILLA SS 11-17-2009 08:17 PM

:shock:

Here's a few pics."thumbsup"
Had to use a spacer on one side since the motor/axle pod is offset.
The axle for it is temporary until I can get a proper one made.
Where I have it adjusted,it picks the front wheels up about 1/2".I guess we'll see (eventually:cry:) how well it works.
I need to pull it back apart and sandblast the parts.I just wanted to see if I needed to change anything first.

HMMMM............................................. .........
I wonder what I should do with this.:twisted:
Anyone want to help me out on the year.I'm not to up on the newer 'stangs.
Picked this up NIP.Only opened it to check it out.Anyone that knows me,knows I like the less common bodies when I can get my hands on them.
Just need to come up with a paint job (and successfully do it:oops:).

Should I call this my "SS Killa Stang"?:lmao::lmao::lmao:

STANG KILLA SS 12-03-2009 05:53 PM

lol
thats that pre 05 bodystyle.

so its xxxx to 2004, just cant remember when the they went from the roundy body (after the fox bodies) and to this square body. i know it ended in 04 though.

canadianbacon 12-03-2009 05:59 PM

That body style went from 1999-2004 (SN95 New Edge)

SN95 went from 94-98

Fox went from 79-93

RIG_RIDER 12-03-2009 08:48 PM
