Too much work? I was to lazy to do that. One day i just sat down, took it all apart, cleaned it, waited a couple of weeks, and put it back together.

meh, i'm pretty good with figuring out things by looking at them, and if worse comes to worse i can just take it apart and put it back together. I just wanted it to come w/ the servo and everything so that when i got it i could pop in a battery and drivve it

Allright. By the way, when you go to home depot or w/e to buy ABS, take your wheel with you. Makes sure its a good tight fit before you buy. It's gonna be alot tighter then you expect.

It works like this, you buy a chassis. Then you buy a body for that chassis.
THIS IS A CHASSIS:

THIS IS A BODY:

Get the point?


So you have to buy a chassis, and then a rx8 body for it.

K, I just wanted the body, chassis, and controller all together.
But w/e, I just want a replica of my car to play with.
It's worth the time to build

Thats always a blast to do. Just buy any chassis kit, and buy a body. Body will cost you about another 30 or so.

if you cant get the abs over the tires, put the rims in the freezer for like 2 hours and then put the tires in boiling water and let them sit for like a minute. they should slip right onto the rims then.
