Almost ready.. I've pretty much fully stripped and rebuilt the bike in the last two weeks and still havent finished painting the body and rider yet

On the plus side, everything feels nice and smooth now, I've put a double servo CNR carbon top plate in (with only one servo, still to get brakes and a new wheel), and as a bonus the bikes probably cleaner than its ever been. The body still makes it look pretty trashy though. I'm planning to have the new one ready for Sunday.

I'm going to have to get out for a run before then to make sure I havent stuffed anything up but it all looks nice and neat.

Still havent got the metal gears for the HOR yet, they must have taken the rowboat from hong kong but if they make it before then i'll try to bring that out as well.

I even got a hat so I can avoid burning!. Its nowhere near as cool as Simons but i'll have to make do

I am getting myself organised for this weekend, I got the radio gear for the NF today and have already started fitting it so I will have it on the weekend, though it may have a dodgy body till I get one sorted. Plan to spend wed afternoon/night sorting the bikes and get some testing in some time before race day, cant wait for it

Troy, when my hat was made they broke the mould.....good thing to

I need a towel over here to clean up the drool.

I have been a little out of control with the spending lately so better if I don't, but it would be good to see it stay on the coast and raced I want everyone to have a nitro to race at the the first Nitro meet

I think Troy needs this one, plus you cant get divorced if you are not yet married LOL

Troy's NF nitro money went onto a dress..! Wonder how much CashConverters would pay for that dress..?? lol

That NF is Chris's,.. It's a bargan for $600, and if you meet him at the track you wouldn't have to pay for postage....

lol I don't need anymore bikes..

Im a little bored tonight so I thought I would post some pics of the progress of my nitro. I still need to organise a manifold, tank and brakes and then all the small stuff like steering/throttle linkages etc.
