...I voted WHITE...I am a BIG fan of black rims and the white will suit them better...I also have the FUN job of taking all the stickers off and swapping them for sponsor ones, including but not limited to, halfEight.com, PanicToys.com, Team Helotes, TBone Racing and Hello Kitty :p

...find them as in 'See where they are? Or find them as in 'Do they exist? Black rims in japan are also few and far between so i will a whole bunch when i find them...i guess you could say i have a wheel fetish :o

I voted yellow, but it depends on the colors the stickers will be, what stands out better.

Here you are just for your viewing pleasure. My race B4. Decked in its all black. With multiplex 40 mHz reciever and Novak 5800SS brushless and a 5000mhA Lithium battery pack. Is is also sporting the extreemly hard to find Schamacher 2.0 hard spikes in the rear and the Schumacher Fives ribed fronts. Right now geared for a tight clay track. Top speed in this trim 33 to 35 MPH. And will pull a wheelie if you jump on it. I use the stock shocks for this track because it is fairly flat and low.

Bit. I was reading you original post for this thread. In it you say 3 choices. I only know of white and yellow. What is the third, ultraviolet?

I want the yellow. I love monkeys.

...plain and simple typo...I will correct it now...but i have already devised a cunning plan for my clear body :) I have also invited a VERY good airbrush artist to come and be on the boards with us and he showed up last night :D So its all coming together slowly :D

This is a hard one, haven`t voted yet, i love the yellow one! But when i have tossed the original body away and want to make a new one, then the white one is gooder because just that it has white rims and a white wing. So i will decide in the same moment as i`ll buy my car! :)

BitHed
03-19-2005, 12:17 PM
...Good point Chrille...I never thought of that...White rims and a white wing...hmm...

...I know what you mean though...the yellow one DOES look pretty cool AND its the sites 'official' colour...But i will go with white...

chrille
03-19-2005, 01:53 PM
I think that i`ll get the white one to, but damn cool the yellow one is!! :)

LOL, there's the yellow/orange thing again! ;) :D It's not the official color, ours is a non-existent orange car - compare this yellow one to my orange avatar:

I like the sites color sceme. I am not big on yellow (even though I have a yellow F40 listed on MZR). The white and orange breaks it up and works with it nicely. Most of the time I used yellows in painting a body is in flame jobs.

Thank God. I thought I was the only Apple Jedi here. You should really ger the new black and white logo. I always disliked that rainbow one. I told Wozinak years ago to dump it when he and Jobs were still building in their garage.

I have yellow and white comming. But I voted yellow. Bit I need clear bodies get me a price. Noitce the "S" on bodies.

BitHed
03-19-2005, 10:13 PM
...ok i am totally NOT getting the YELLOW and APPLE thing...

...The site colours are fantastic!! Couldnt have done better if i had chosen them myself...

...our logo car ROCKS!! Needs to actually exist...Make it so...

...RURC you need 10 of eveything i know i know ;)

One yellow one for me please. Better make it two. might need parts

03-31-2005, 02:36 PM
i like the white one...mainly because it comes with white rims. although i do like the yellow body what happens if i want to get a clear one and paint it? i dont want to have a hot-pink with purple detailing paint scheme with yellow rims it would be UGLY

does anyone know if the white rims will dye-able? or if they arent can i dye them anyways?

BitHed
03-31-2005, 02:39 PM
...adrenalin dye them...shouldnt be any problem with that...rims are all pretty much the same plastic right? Let me know if you mess it up and I will get you a new set ;)

RURC
03-31-2005, 05:54 PM
I use an old coffee maker to dye parts. You can leave it in there for 24 hours or more and it dose not get hot enouf to warp the parts. And it is easy to clean not to mention the fact you now have an excuse to buy that new Melita coffee maker. Now thats coffee.
