Further Description/Back Story I currently have 43 RC's in my collection. The majority of them have been customized by me using styrene, custom made pieces and painting. My collection attracts a lot of attention with my friends, family and neighbors. Most often the kids in the neighborhood gain so much interest in the hobby after seeing my RC's that they hound their parents for an RC adding another enthusiast to the hobby. In December of 2021 I received a copy of the RC Action Gear Guide 2022 in the mail. I thought how cool it would be to create a completely customized RC using parts that can be picked up at my local shop or ordered online. I thought it would be a great showcase in my collection to show people what can be done with all the custom bolt-on parts now available. In recent years drag cars have become a very popular style and since speed is always a must, I chose to build a Long Arm Sand Drag that will not only blast through the sand at high speed with tons of travel but would also look right at home in my collection as a shelf queen. I'm extremely proud of this build and I hope it inspires new hobbyists and those who may not have the talent to use styrene, soldering irons or air brush systems to create a killer RC by simply using catalogs, websites and their wallet.
