Default Let the modding begin....

So today while i was over Robs place (corvettecrazy)
I saw something did that i liked ALLOT

so i want to try it my self

I got a 300C 1/18th Model, Im going to lower it and Add LEDs that light up and flash and make the car look real. (Rob can add some of his if he wants)

First Mod was to lower it.
Took about 2 coils off each spring. Sits about 3mm lower now or so now.
Looks much better.

Im starting this thread early cuz i want to use it for ideas and to document my progress.
Its a side thing that can take my mide of other things in life










Well here are some first pics with the lowered springs
