We are going to retire our BMW M3, its been a great seller and one of my favorites, but instead of remaking a new mold we’re going to make room for new models.

Congrats to everyone that owns one of these beautiful pieces im sure theyll be around for a while. Expect to see some new thing pop up soon, more track focused parts.

Hyperlite…

Ok I had to share this. So I have been employed to help develop different resin transfer processes for other companies and their projects. With new types of resin and high pressures I was able to come up with a new process that produced very light parts and I recently got a chance to apply it to something RC related.

This process had proven to be one thing, expensive, the resin isnt easy to get and the method itself is very hard to pull off correctly. But after trying it I think it might be worth all the hassle. I was able to shed a lot of weight off a 5B body. Normally clocking in at about 120 grams for the carbon ones and about the same for the lexan ones, I was expecting it to weigh around 80 grams using the same amount of fabric as we always have. However, same amount of fabric, it came out at 65.9 grams painted.

Heres the thing. While fail testing we discovered by doing this process you could used less reinforcement fabric and still keep the desired strength. Less fabric means less resin which means even lighter parts. So 65.9 grams and there is still excess fat on it. Judging on what I know from this I believe its possible to make a touring car body that weighs about half what a lexan body weighs and still being a lot stronger than one… Something to think about…

So Far So Good…

After about 5 hours use banging against other cars the new paint seems to hold perfectly.

Repainting only cost 13usd. I took my time and made a few new pieces. the rear diffuser connects directly to the chassis and so far seems very strong. Once I figure out what it can with stand ill make them available as well…

Repainting…

Ive decided to repaint the 350z but Im afraid its going to take me a while. Ill be trying new brands of paint so this will ultimately help answer everyone who keeps asking what paints are best. I always recommend expensive automotive paint but this time it will be the cheap alternative choices.

If anyone has had good results with a certain brand or technique, please share…
