Where did you find this?

Ive been racing R/C cars for the past 13 years so ive been in it for a while

the car is an HPI cup racer
www.hpiracing.com
and the body is a Tamiya
www.tamiyausa.com

if you google tamiya miata or tamiya eunos or something like that you should be able to find it pretty easy.

I used a bottle of mazda touch up paint and thinned it down then airbrushed the body so its the exact same montego blue.
also since my hard top was sanded down for paint, I did the same on the little car haha.

your car needs a gv lip
exactly why i left that on the little car! I need to make a mini license plate bracket and a few other things, i need different wheels on both cars.

yes my car needs a gv lip among other things... ive only had it a month I know... im getting behind.

That thing is sick! Does it have a rollbar? I have this HPI Super Nitro Rs4 I bought and built when I was younger. It would be killer do make one of these but the scale of mine is larger so there are no bodies that would fit :(
This inspires me to dust it off and get it running again.
I think the mini plate would be amazing.

id like to somehow find an interior set that I could mold in and cut the top off the body.....
ill figure something out.

ive done a few other cars with full interiors now, but the problem is that the miata is a bit smaller, and most sets wont fit inside it.
