HPI Sprint 2 Sport Drift RC Car

These are photos of my newest project. For some inexplicable reason, I felt the desire to get into RC racing. I really enjoy car racing, especially the science and physics behind it. Since I''m a non-driver, and not a millionaire, RC racing is probably the closest I'll come to getting behind the wheel of a racecar. This particular care is an HPI Sprint 2 Sport Drift car with a Toyota Trueno body. It's an AWD drift car, so the suspension, tires, motor placement steering are setup for going sideways. I buiult the car and painted the body over a couple days, and for my first shot at creating a car I'm pleased what the way it came out. I shot half of these photos with my Nikon D70S DSLR and half with Nikon Coolpix S570 point and shoot camera. May 6, 2010.
