Further Description/Back Story I started building this tried and true good old chassis as is came from the box, then got the drifting bug and started buying Yeah Racing parts for it to modify it as RWD. It has been a journey for sure. I realized all the differences and adjustments that actually make a difference between a regular "On Road" car. The learning curve has been steep for sure, at least for me, but very entertaining.

Not saying that I am an expert, but chasing other variants of this hobby is where it gets better in terms of learning new things everyday. The tinkering, the testing and the rewarding changes in performance of any car you work on, is what this hobby is all about and is even better when shared with other people that have this common denominator.

Talking about the body. This one came after being a fan of the Fast/Furious Movies. So many models to chose from!! But finally decided for the EVO X. I can hear the perfectionists yelling at this page saying this is not the correct car from Brian, but I wanted to give it a twist just like the movies.

This is my tribute to the late Paul Walker (RIP) actor and car lover.
