Yeah mate the colour looks good!

I meant that it would be nice to see a pic that has all the car in, rather than close up pics.

as your using just one throttle cable, might be an idea to swap it to the forward run, and then lose the rear spring

i know its a pain as you have to rethread the whole cable

ive seen a few linkages wear badly due to this, and keeping both springs will give you foot ache and increased chances of snapping the cable :)

That is a properly nice motor. I really love the way it looks, and everything is so tidy.

Just one question, where did the engine/gearbox steadies come from, or are they something you made yourself?
