      Typical Shypo!!!!
      Get those numbers up up up!

      Lets try to find something a bit more traditional.

      What are most pace cars? Not just the holden utes or the whirly bird trucks…..

      Or how about Pace = Pacer = Valiant

      We want something that can be made too, or an existing car with custom paint job and decals, change of wheels maybe??????

      What one person finds cool, others may not necessarily find so…….

      Don’t envy Aaron and Derek on this one.

      *laughs* now this is interesting. I shoudl add that such a car/body would need to be already made, and not marked. ie Body in white, so we could then apply the custom decals etc.

      Part of the issue to control is cost. there’s heaps of cool stuff we could get made, the proble is we need to be able to afford the development cost and more importantly you guys need to be able to afford to buy it!

      The gloria would be a nice show car, do the large wheel mod and drop it with the ausmicro paint scheme and stickers, just like what shypo said, if no ones keen to do a mini van,

      Even with the above having been said… Lotus Elise. Ferrari f50, Lambourghini.

      Obviously Derek will now turn to Aaron and say “Tell him he’s dreamin'”

      On a more serious note, i think it will need to be white or mostly to show off the AusMicro logo nicely I think. Maybe with a custom sporty paint job?

      Indy pace cars are often Corvettes, GMs, Buicks, Camaro, etc.
      On the CART site I see Supra, Firebird, Acura NSX, Viper, Toyota Solara.
      Supercar series used a Holden in Australia.

      Supra sounds good to me though. That’s my favourite body anyway.

      And the flashing yellow lights on top and strobe style headlights!!:smiley2:

      Now that would be cool :approve:

      All the extra weight would probably have the desired effect of having a slower pace car!!

      *shakes head sadly*

      You lot are a funny bunch, but I like ya’s!!!

      *thinks*

      Something base model in white, with some custom stickers on, that come in a sheet that you can put on yourself.
      Then if you later want to change wheels, add lights etc… up to you.
      Keep prices low, get everyone to buy!!!

      So…………….
      Sell a basic shell only in white with sticker sheet.
      After everyone has one, we can run a forum on what we have done to our Ausmicro Cars!!!

      If the decals are already on the body it will have the look Aaron and Derek want. Although they might be into seeing how the community use the decals…

      dont waste your time guys! a decal sheet would be enough. why do we all need to agree on the shell anyways. I reckon ‘cos ausmicro is so important to tomy’s buisness in australia derrick and aaron should get some(5) of those sexy new lambos done in white and then instead of actually wasting these beauties make a flash based game where you move the decals over 3 different angles of the car, and can submit yor creation.
      then once Aaron sorts through the 100 entries he can find the best one and stick the decals on that way.
      to get an idea of the type of simple program check out the “create a gaunt” program inside the games workshop website on the TYRANID page

      What about the white Skyline 2000 GTR pullbacks.
      Only cost a few bucks to get them, slap on the AusMicro decals, and you have a body and look that very few if any of us have.

      http://www.hlj.com/images/tom/tom64224.jpg

      They might not have time to design a Flash game. Nice idea though.

      Hey z-beam, how about instead of Aaron or Derek doing all that work, you do it instead.

      What you are talking about in making the “flash based game” would take time.

      Some people actually have to find time to do actual work, and maybe, just maybe, have a life too?????

      Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

      i think a custom pace carwould just be cool cos its kinda a LE thing but its jus cool.

      a supra is quite good but i still think it sits to high on the chassis. i dont want a high car, could always drop the prototype and the other prototypes:D:smiley16:

      i like the AE86 cos just about evrybody LOVES it

      last thing i think we should use a readily available shell such as compact shells or pullbacks which we could get in bulk

      Isn’t the AE86 a Corolla? And someone said Holdens were a joke because we see them everyday. Unless there’s something I’m missing here? What’s the attraction Shypo? Can you send me a link to a hot pimp Corolling a long kinda ride mate?

      AE86 is not an everyday corolla here in Oz

      And back to main point….
      (am a girl, is my job to nag!)
      Something easily available.

      Holden will not be something easily and CHEAPLY available……

      SHPYO you didnt answer my question .. can you still get those german alloys? Please PM me with details, thanks alot = )

      The cheapest alternative would prob be to get a whole lot of white compact skylines and put the decals on.

      Not sure if Ausmicro want their car to be a “pimpin’ car”

      Besides, I thought we wanted something easily available to everyone, not just something one forum member makes (that’d keep you pretty busy!) and we want Mini Z and BitCharG don’t we????

      So something that is standard for both!
      If both models of whatever shape are same basic colour, then we work with decals.

      Simple, or so it would sound……..

      I think the car issue is not a priority for Aaron or Derek at this stage.

      Lets see what they say?

      The white Skyline 2000 GTR pullbacks would be the cheapest way to get already manufactured white bodies, unless someone has a contact at Tomy, or LXX, or some other clone company.

      Then there’s the MiniZ side of things. I don’t know much about MiniZs, but a shell for those would need to be an option too.

      i think a couple of people here have contacts that can get white skyline compact shells for about $5 each so itd be pretty cheap that way.

      Mini Z bodies would be alot harder casue they are alot more expensive, and harder to get them cheaper.

      But if the car is one type and not the other, isn’t that being prejudiced? or biased? or whatever?

      Just trying to be fair to everyone!

      Anyone that can get the cheap shells should put their hands up!!!

      i can get heaps and heaps of compact char-G shells for cheap as Barrelll said. hopefully we get alot of support becos apart from compact shells we will hav to work out a bulk order from an online shop or from TOMY themselves

      Is there a Clone manufacturer that we could get white shells from cheaper perhaps? For BCGs and MiniZs. That way the shells might be a body type we don’t all already have. Obviously the quality of the shell is an issue also – it needs to be of reasonable quality or no one will buy them.

      They should be way less that $5 per shell, seeing as the pullbacks are about $6-8 and includde the whole car, but as Kitty says, there’s an upfront cost of $500 for that, and not all of us have that kicking around like spare change.

      As I said in other forum re: shirts…. am happy to be collection point for people who want to pay upfront.
      And I live nearby to Aaron so he can keep tabs on me (finally get to race him!!) but am supposedly a responsible adult so…………..

      Firstly we need more members of the forums to express an interest.
      Get me a minimum number of people willing to pay up front (for shells and shirts) and we will go from there.

      That is if A&D approve it of course.

      Still need their input, apparently is their site ya know

      I think ausmicro.com decals to start with would be a great start. I know I would put them on a car or two waaaaaay up here, if they were avail;) As for a car my vote is for the Rx7 or S2000 (all white.. no soft top).

      Impreza :smiley16:

      I think the s2000 are ugly, but that’s just me. I like the Supra body – it looks mean.

      The Fairladies are nice. After that I’ll just have to hang out for the European supercars later this year.

      i honeslty dont like the supra very much, sorry Dave and Barrelll. but it looks deformed, the front gaurds are weird, the bonnet has a huge hump in it, the back is way to high.. and the lights looks funny IMO, the black looks better than any other IMo cos u cant really see the serious imperfections…

      s2000 gets a vote for me. (although I like the Rx7 too, lots of space for a decal on the hood).

      Yeah. it would be a pitty after all the buildup, and all the work you’ve put in (even modelling work) for people not to buy them.

      If anyone is wonderring if they should get a Tshirt, the answer is “yes you should get one”.

      Can anyone get one? Yes.
      Are the Tshirts approved by the AusMicro Admin people? Yes.
      Do we have to pay right now? No, not until there are enough orders – if 30 people don’t say they want a T-Shirt, none will be printed. They can’t do a run of less that 30 Ts.

      Does that sound right?

      Yeah, me too. I don’t understand why there aren’t more people who also want one. They look like good Ts, the design came up well, $30 is pretty cheap for a decent T too.

      I think an NSX like the mobil NSX, just plain white, lowered, with the Ausmicro decals. Or a 350z would look nice in white with those decals.

      I thought the Fairlady shell would be easier to come by now it’s one of the pullbacks. Seeing as RCmod are pulling them appart to make th wheels into moded poarts for BCG, maybe they have some extra shells kicking around?

      Shypo, do you have or know where pics are of the R34 with the normal wing? I have, or have seen; the AM, pull-back and skyline GTR set and all have the bigger Gt wing? Which set comes with the smaller wing?

      the set which comes with the smaller wing is the blue or white R34, the orignal R34.
      the Am. pullback and GTR set are the ones with the Gt wing yes.

      here is a pic of the smaller wing version.

      this is the same GTR shell as the Castrol, Pennzoil, Loctite and Xanavi

      the perfection 3.8’s are quite a decent engine, yes from experience:smiley2:
      IMO the Tiny-rc Rspec motor is alot better as it has more low end power and torque.

      I’ve never seen them. Mine are all 8 spokes (AM, Z, and others). If I could give you 3 and keep the 5 I would mate, then we’d both be happy. 🙂

      the Zip Zap knuckle conversion isnt a hard one. its just badsically replacing the existing BCG ones with ZZ ones and thats it. the axles just snap into place….

      Dave, a clone? I know it is a dirty word to many, but a good chassis to practice mods on:) Nothing worse then killing a bit:dead:

      Isn’t it a different colour? They’re meant to be ok. HLJ tell me the quality of the LXX is going to improve in their new range due for release around mid year.
