1/6 Scale Camaro

Just for giggles i am working on a JADA Camaro for my wife. I have painted the body already, met. purple on top with black on the bottom separated by a silver stripe. I plan on adding new LED's for the lights and taillights and replacing all the electronics with a good brushless setup.

looks sharp, are you going to gut it and put in hobby grade electrics?

You'll prob have to just get a new chassis for it. Those JADA and NewBright stuff just don't have the gearing or good enough servos to hold up to real RC electronics.

goint to be tough to find wheels and tires like thouse that make the ride look scale .
i would go with a moddified brushed set up as thouse tires are not going to hook verry well . unless you could mock up a drive train.
like say the rear end of a tamaya midnight pumpkin . or another of that type to keep the look of a real car . the front would be simple to mount a real servo ir possably use the one it has if its a three wire .
