HPI RX-8: Finished and Sitting on the TT02 FRD

Seems like I have been working on the HPI RX-8 for a while, but I have had a few breaks along the way while working with the TT02 FRD.  This body is pretty simple overall, and I intended for it to be that way.  It will be the primary runner for the FRD, but I still wanted it to look nice.  I used many of the decals that came with the body for window trim and other body details.  They actually look pretty nice if you take the time to trim them cleanly.  The wing and struts are from Speedway Pal, the splitter is made from scratch, and the mufflers and tips were turned from aluminum on a lathe.  You can check out the rest of the pics after the jump.
