I found this pic today, and its gotten me thinking, maybe I ditch the idea of anodising the Powerstrokes purple, and deanodising to a polished look:

Personally I think that some color contrast makes it pop.

Not sure about purple though. Red or blue anodizing would be nice.

I wonder where that person got the chrome powerstroke springs?

And this is what 5-6 hours of wetsanding followed by hand polishing ends up as:





A friend in the states messaged me yesterday also, and all of the metric blue 12.9 grade hardware will be on its wasy to me soon. Very excited to get some builds finished, waiting only for the screws to tie it all together:

I don't have anywhere near that much patience - but WOW!! Looks great! On the other hand, I can make quite a few skids in 6 hrs - none will shine anything like that, though!

Now that is honor for your work as we say in The Netherlands :)
Great work, the only problem I see is that I would not be able to drive it anymore now :)

Haha, agreed. I'm not happy to admit it, but this truck will never see pavement or dirt. Pure collector's item for me, I have a 3908L emax & a FLM extended LCG Savage for bashing duties. For me personally, I enjoy the build as much as the bash, so while some will hate me for it, there are shelf queens in my house... I have a G4 VBS Widetrac build, a Centralemaxx Ph@ntom Hybrid build, DUH Engineering Dominator Hybrid Electric Conversion with Flextek build, and now this G1 build. Oh, and have I mentioned my clods lol... TTR Tremor, TTR Centurion, & TTR Ripper Pro... Will post up some pics when I get home tonight.

nothing wrong with shelf queens - I have 60 or so RC cars, so no need to beat them all into the ground!

Wish I had the money too haha. If my wife knew half of what I spend on this addiction, she would kill me ;-) Here are some of the other projects either just getting started or bash worthy:

FLM Extended LCG Savage I am preparing to convert with Alza Centre Diff Mount & 1717 powerhouse:



SaBR Extended Ti OFNA Dominator, best truck I have even owned. Best thing about a Ti chassis like this is the sparks when you land your jumps, this truck is as indestructible as it gets in my opinion:



Stock 3908L EMAXX with T-Bone front & rear bumpers:



DUH Engineering Hybrid Maxx with Flexteks. This truck will have as much Ti as you can find pretty much, & with my own little flavour of electric conversion using a RCM Centre Mount:




My Gorillamaxx G4 with Unlimited Engineering VBS & Widetrak:



ThunderTech Racing Centurion LTD Clod with JPS Mod Tri-Star Rims:



ThunderTech Racing Tremor Clod with JPS Circles Rims:

Love the powder-coating Ralf, pure awesome. Might have to look at this as an option before I build my Ripper Pro!
