Default August 2010: "Open Class" Entry Thread:

August Open Class
Welcome to the August 2010 Open Class “Car of the Month” competition. Please remember to read all of the rules carefully and fully. Please remember that this is the entry thread only and no discussion is allowed—please make all posts regarding comments, questions and concerns to other members’ entries in the Discussion Thread.

Rules for Entering:
As always, you are limited to one entry per person per month. In an effort to simplify things this month everyone is eligible to enter.

1. Your entry must be:
-A fully functioning small scale RC vehicle (Xmod, Mini-Z, Micro-T, etc). It must steer and run.
-This is Open Class: the body may be whatever you like (truck, car, van, race-car, etc).
-Your entry must be owned by you at the time of the competition (both entry time and voting time).

2. You must enter by:
-Your entry must be posted in this entry thread by: Tuesday, August 31, 2010 at 9:00PM EST.
-Any entries made after August 31, 2010 at 9:00PM EST will NOT be allowed into the voting poll. Please be sure to plan accordingly.
-If you cannot make it due to time constraints do not rush and just wait for the next month’s competition.

3. Your entry post must contain:
-The make, model and year of your body. (Example: Ford Mustang 2006 or ’69 Chevy Corvette) and/or the Project Name.
-A list of ALL current upgrades and changes made to your body, chassis and electronics. Sometimes we cannot see by pictures alone all of the modifications you as an owner have made. A list helps show and tell us what has been done.

3a. Pictures:
-A minimum of four pictures is required and maximum of seven pictures is allowed.
-You may link to other pictures and video, but no more than seven pictures can be within [IMG] tags. All videos must be in link form (no [YOUTUBE] tags).
-You are required to have one of the four mandatory pictures be a picture of your chassis. All other pictures may be from whatever angle you wish and of whatever part of your entry you wish.
Rules for Voting:
1. Participation Rules:
-All members are allowed to vote.

2. What you should not do:
-Self-voting is frowned upon. Please be sportsman like. If you do not like any of the entrants but your own, simply do not vote.
-Creating a separate account just to vote for yourself. Unknown and suspicious handles will be IP checked.
-Any type or form of cheating is frowned upon. Please do not even try to cheat.
-Members who enter who cheat will be removed. Any self votes will be removed from the final tally.

3. Time Frame:
-Voting will be open for one week (seven days) from the start of the voting thread. Again, all entrants must be in by August 31st, 2010 at 9:00PM EST.
-Please allow the Staff some time to create the voting thread. If you don’t see it after forty-eight hours please remind us!
Rules are subject to change. Please review the both when entering and when voting. Voting rules will be duplicated into the voting thread.

Mini z F1 body with custom front and rear mounting clips
Erg alloy rims

alloy chassis(blue)
alloy shocks front and rear(blue)
alloy knuckles front and rear(silver)
lithium power
2x2 fet stack
modified motor with plasma dash armature and neo mags

I need alloy rims but not the rs alloy rims. If you have some you are willing to part with let me know. Paying top dollar for them and even better if they are top cad alloy rims as I will pay full price and a half for them.

Here's mine!

Mini-Z AWD Nissan Skyline GT-R R32, this car started off as a retired race body with many dents and other damages. I gave it a make over and turned it into a drift car. Not only that it looks like a drift car, the chassis is also set up for drifting. Narrow drift tires up front with wide drift tires in the back. Wheels off-set are 2W all around. Kyosho ball diff. F/R, front diff. is set up loose compare to the rear, more power goes to the rear than the front, kinda works like a RWD car. Lower down springs up front, trim up springs in the rear. Ball bearings all around. Now I'll let the pics speaks for itself!
