I notice a lot of you guys like adding exhaust pipes to your cars. Hobby Lobby has these little trinkets in the jewelery making department. They already have a shine to them, just add a little flat black to the inside pipe...RM

P.S. Go on line @ Hobbylobby.com Some weeks they have a 40% off coupon.

Hello

Ive been doing the same thing but now I'm looking for squared shapes and rectangular shapes for the new style exhaust pipes. Micheals sell the shorter length in four different sizes without the hooks which I think works easier.

Good eyes VJ!!! The 55 is an AFX slotcar that I repainted. It is running an AFX chassis. I hogged out the rear fenders, lowered it, and added a hood ornament. It is running some Hot Wheels chrome 5 spokes...RM

Very nice cars. Those wheels look great on it. That track looks amazing! I love the infields. Got more show-off pics of the track?


I'm playing around with fitting a 300C body on a 440x2 chassis. Initial fit was easy, i just need to make a solid mount now.

I never thought about using Jewelry for exhaust pipes

I have been using Brake Line Tubing for the Semi Trucks

I will have to check into these. Thanks for the tip. :thumbsup:
