Here are a few shots of my Associated TC4 1/10th electric touring car. Trying to match scale is somewhat of a challenge, but it was a lot of fun to do non the less. I shot the first three on the empty top deck of a park-&-ride. The other two are in front of new condos at the end of our street.

C&C all you want! :)

these could quite possibly pass as the real thing, they just have that 'plastic' look to them. that being said though, great shots, nice and sharp.. i like the lighting too.

Nice photo's, like the angles. All look good to me, except maybe the last has a "plastic feel" to it.

Is that the HPI 200mm 350Z body? I was thinking of getting that for my Mongoose. Great job on the body and the pic, btw.

Great shots. I raced RC cars for a few years. I started with the Serpent 1/10 and 1/8 scale and later the Nitro TC3. Lots of fun but very expensive hobby.

How much does this entire kit cost?

BTW the first two shots look like the actual car! Very sleek! Very nice shots, and car!

This was a Ready to Run kit and was $240.00. The body is an HPI and as well as the wheels.

You can also see it in the Team Associated Racer Spotlight, September 2007 (external link) and in the November issue of RC Driver in the Readers Rides section. It is also in the BG of a few national ads I did for Cheap Batter Packs.com (external link)
