Hey guys this is my impala im workin on for a while now on and off. I just bought some .80 styene on sunday and decided it was time to redo the styrene chassis again, the old one wasnt just good enough, lol. Well ne ways im showin it with 2 and three motors, lol. Some are updated that's why. I plan on having 4 #260's, and one Big Daddy Johnson, for the high front hop! Right, now i have some mixed motors just to see things are workin properly. It is painted a sand beige by Tamiya paints. I still have ALOT of work to do on it. Including: foiling, clear coat a shitload, new rims, fix some kinks in it, new motors, and add motors, lol. I just started working on it again, about a week ago. I'm already thinking of sellin it when it's done and complete all the right way! I know there are some flaws, but don't worry, they will be FIXED!, lol. Thanks for your time, and feel free to speak your mind on it, everyone has an opinion! Peace.

Hey Impalagirl, feel free to ask any questions you have about building one. I'll do my best to help you out on it! If you can't for some reason get some of the materials, ask me and I can most likely get them for you! ;)

I got a Hoppin Hydros 4 motor setup that will slide right into a `64 Impala. I'm thinking between making my `64 a hopper/dancer or a lowrider in a diorama that's being built in the garage with a few out front with some homie figures. What you think I should do?

Gettin that ass up high!! :biggrin:

I have some .125 would that be good to build one with? :biggrin:[/b][/quote]
i think that would be to thin and flimsy.

Im having trouble with my 4 motor car.. when I hit the switch for either back wheel, it always wants to pull the whole u-bar, not just the side I'm trying to hit..

lol, i didn't even notice he put .8

in that case, maybe .125 might be too thick?!
