It's actually 1/18. I put it on a turntable in the engine bay for car shows.

I'll check with my brother... he is a champion modeler and has built many wheels in the past... That would be cool to see some replica Savinis on that thing....

Had a blast at the AAC open house this weekend. Badgebunny and I both picked up awards. Bunny won for best use of interior lighting and I won for best GM vehicle.

What a great weekend! And a great cruise back, despite the few scares we had. I have a picture on my camera, my avg speed on my DIC was 77mpg. HAHAHAH. Highest I have EVER seen it. Now 5 days till track day!

Can you get a shot of those taillights when they are all lit up when the brakes are on? Or do only the "afterburner" lights light up?

I am thinking about getting those.

Beautiful pics!

I'm glad I don't live in driving distance of AAC!

I'll see if I can find a shot with the brakes on. The afterburners stay on all the time, but when you hit the brakes the regular lights come on as well.

Did you install the afterburner kit yourself or did you have AAC do it? I'm not sure I'm comfortable cracking open my taillights.

I could take them out. That's not a problem. So if they can modify my stock taillights, I'd ship my taillights to them.

AAC installed everything...I wouldn't have felt comfortable either. You could definitely ship them and get it done.
