Default Some Updates on my RC

Haven't posted in awhile, been real busy at work. Figured I'd post up some recent pics and some mods from the past year. Still love my racecraft and wouldn't trade it in :)

First, brakes:












Subframes, Panhard, Kmember Brace with Torque limiters, UCA with pinion angle adjusted
























And the biggest mod - HEADERS!!















The Gains: I gained close to 25HP from the headers alone. Very happy with them. And thats only 5lbs of boost too!



And a start up video: Can't figure out how to embed the video

Whats in Epping?

Thanks for the compliments. My whole goal with this car is to be a good street car. The 411WHP is getting put to the tires very well and traction is not too bad now with all the upgrades. I want to stay really far away from pushing the engine as I like to be able to beat on it without worrying. The headers sound amazing and the car pulls hard. Looks good(to me) and being 1 of 31 I am not going to do anything crazy....until its time

have you had the brakes for awhile, or did you just purchase them, think a read a post where they did not have any more of the red one's, rest of mods look good . i'm hoping to do some to mine soon. just had grabber pony make a custom shift knob with the 420 s logo on the sides turned out really nice

No, I got those brakes almost 1 and 1/2 years ago but didn't put them on until the summer. Last I heard, they had no more. I wanted another set myself :(

But I do like just having them in the front, they stick out more that way and complete the car.
