Very nice! Clean. I love those Ramtech arms and that body. Did you run it after you took the pic? What are the temps in Sydney right now? It's summer right?

Thanks guys and yes I ran her afterwards but took the rims off, I'm after some hostiles to put on these rims then its bashing time

The paint is done by Zeilke racing - he has them on line, there were only 2 baja designs when I got mine but now theres quite a few.

And csp the temps are getting up there now, getting up to around 30C or 86F regularly in sydney, it was a scorcher in WA for chrissy - over 40C which is like 104F :cool2:

I must say until the front end upgrade comes out from MCD which is at the Nuremberg toy fair very soon then the order is

1. HPI Baja
2. FG Monster Beetle
3. MCD Racerunner

I think I expect too much out of the MCD re: jumping, but its shitting me replacing Rose joints nearly every weekend i run it, but in saying that its my favourite to drive, just not jump - the other two will cop a beating that the MCD at this stage can't. But with the hinged front end then I am expecting the same abilites from the MCD as the rest

They have heard my cries... nah i think everyone was having issues with the front end and its rediculous amount of rose joints, so MCD redesigned a new front end, it will be released soon (at the Nuremberg Toy fair or whatever its called) and will hopefully do away with quite a few rose joints in the front end and replace them with hinge pins. There are no photos out yet that I'm aware of but trust me i will be on a new front end like flies on you know what and will post a pic of the new hinged front end asap. The evo2 although redesigned looks only to address a handling issue and not the issue of robustness encountered when landing the heavier MCD's off jumps
