Less negative camber in the front and rear(mostly the front) and you will be right on the money. It's definitely looking good so far and it would be awesome if you could recreate the engine bay and run the car without a hood too. I look forward to seeing this project completed. :up:

LOL@ the bong sitting on the table too.

yeah the camber looks pretty aggressive since the front end of this body gets narrower towards the front. I was gonna adjust it a bit but got lazy! lol but ive thought about doing the engine bay and do a build from scratch. that may be in store in the near future =)

PS, not a bong....but a table lamp without the shades :Shifty:

Awesome job so far! Nigel's Silvia, 180SX and "Hilux" are pretty awesome cars. Perhaps you should build replicas of his other cars to go with this 8-)
