    Here's my FTS Punisher I've paid £65 for this and £9 for charger.
    Am looking at making it into a off road police truck. So looking for tips on lighting and body shell conversion. So it will look like the off road police truck attached in photos

    £65 !!! Now thats a bargain. As for lights , what do you want? LED flashing , rotating? If you type in ebays search bar LED RC lights there are a multitude of them.

    Dear Gamefan,
    Very nice vehicle I wish you lots of luck.
    I've been into 5th scale since 2016.
    I joined the forum in March of 2017.
    It is a great hobby, I enjoy working on them as much as running them.
    The only thing I job out now is painting, not a big fan of wraps and decals.
    "FOOD FOR THOUGHT" It is very hard not to be tempted to run your new vehicle in front of your house even for a second.
    "DON'T DO IT" I just broken in the motor on my new Vekta 5 at one of my safe location spots.
    At home I put in a fresh spark plug and proceeded to fine tune the motor in front of the house.
    My first run at full throttle ended up in a head on collision with a car that came out of nowhere.
    I totaled my Vekta 5 and payed for the damage to the car I hit. Your car insurance will not cover you for this type of accident.
    See the pictures of the Vekta 5 and the car I hit, since this is the picture page. Total cost for the car was $800.00 and I new Vekta 5 $1499.00. I was able to salvage the motor and some undamaged parts that I will post on E-Bay to recover some of my losses.
    P.S. My Losi 5ive-T in my profile pic. Was run over by a car in front of my house when I was stopped at I four way intersection.
    The driver was texting and cut into the on coming lane were I was stopped. I posted those pictures a while ago.
    I have learned the hard way, run at safe locations only and save yourself a lot grief and money.
    Best Regards.
    William E. Burrows Jr.

    MARLEY76 - Yep, already looking at a tunes pipe and some other upgrades. Will run it stock for a few then start upgrading.

    William - Sorry to hear about the Vekta and the car accident. Glad no one was hurt (except the pocket book). My LHS has a track for 8th scale and I plan on running it there during the break-in stages. Then I will head up north to some open areas we have in Boulder/Fort Collins.

    The list of replacement parts is over a $1,000.00.
    Body panels and roll cage gone, motor damaged can be salvaged with parts, dominator pipe, front wheels, shocks, arms, bumper, bottom plate and more.
    I would be a head buying the Vekta 5 kit.
    P.S. my air bags never deployed Ha Ha.
    Rear end parts are sellable on eBay.
    I believe this is my best move.
    I cannot answer your question how did this happen, it just did.
