Hi all,
I know I'm not very active on here but I always like to put pictures of my cars when new, people seem to be interested in seeing the cars so I'm happy to post them!
The car is an RS5 tx16 with RS5 beast engine, RS5 titanium pipe and the new RS5 diff,
I will be running futaba bls177sv servos, mielke clutch and Nosram super shorty lipos,
Here's the pics,

A lot of carbon.
Is there much of a weight saving over 'basic plastic', or is it more 'bling'?

Understood, C/F will bring more rigidity than any proprietary plastic.

Yes we love drooling over the latest and greatest :). Such an amazing car the t16 is. Damn those servo's are pricey! I would love one of these but will prob end up going with the evo due to parts availability.

Hi all,
Sorry I forgot to update this post,
I have raced the car twice so far and unfortunately I have struggled to find a setup in the super cold low grip conditions here in the uk at the moment, I am very confident that next weekend we will get a good setup for the car now that it's getting warmer.
If you would like to see some more pics I upload more on my Facebook page,
Here is the link,

Here are some pics just before the first national event,

I noticed you changed out the diff. did you try the rs5 diff in the open setting?

try yellow springs all the way around & 6000 oil in front 4000 oil in rear. I found this to work real good in cold weather low traction. set the rs5 diff to full open.
