The body shell arrived today. Customizing it now. Will keep 1/2 looking very Neo Scorcher/ Factory. The other 1/2 with the hole I will be customizing. Not 100% sure yet what will look best. The yellow and blue wheels do not work well with the rest of the car.
We’ll see what happens
-Removed the “windows” from the body.
-Will probably install 1 fan in the back
-Added more checkered flag decals.
-Hobbywing brushed 1060 ESC arrived
-ordered a battery, a 30mm x 30mm silver/black fan.

Super stoked. The rear wing arrived. I like it a lot. Might need to do some modifying to it though. I prefer the look of covering the upper rear shock towers. Will probably do some bending/tweaking in the future.
-waiting on some more stickers “checkered flag” stickers to arrive. Need to finish wrapping the body.
-ordered a smaller fan. Other one is too large to fit onto the body.
-working on lowering the stance. Might cut springs.
-used a razor blade and cleaned up some parts of the body
-test fitting blue lights
-drilled holes for rally inspired hood vent
-messing around with tire/wheel/color combinations.
-mounted rear wing (temporarily)
-added 2 stickers “hobbywing” and “option1”. Will probably change out hobby1 sticker with something else
-cleaned up “hobby wing” decal
-wrapped rear wing. Looks freeeeking awesome.
-added more checkered flag vinyl wrap to drivers side. Like the look now.
-opened up the drivers side vent some more. Flows well with checkered flag .
-still working on wheel color combos
-might checker flag front and rear bumpers
-checkered flag rally roof vent. Need to secure it down.
-30mmx30mm fan should arrive tomorrow
The silver stickers arrived. Unfortunately they are VERY shiny/reflective. In the pictures they appeared more gray and dull. Went ahead and ordered some other Tamiya stickers which might work better on the Neo Scorcher.
-Stickers arrived! Added a bunch of them. It looks great.
-Rear spoiler mount bracket arrived also. I’ve wrapped it and installed. Looks great!
-Need to clean up the stickers and checkered flag wrap a bit.
-waiting for another set of blue lights to arrive. Will put them in the cockpit area.
-pretty sure i’m done with adding stickers and customizing now.
-oh yeah need to tighten adjustable spoiler.***need to find small allen key***
-i think thats it for now. Super stoked on it.
-i thought the decals on the yellow wheels was a nice touch.
-i like the red/blue front bumper.
-waiting for some front orange and front blues to arrive. *Rear tamiya star wheels rub against the front steering arms.
-would be cool to add a front windshield decal.
-need to adjust rally roof vent.
The second set of LED lights arrived. I installed them on the drivers side vent area. I think it looks great! Pretty sure I will order another set of blue LEDs. I need to somehow illuminate the front cockpit of the car.
Patiently waiting for the orange wheels to arrive.
