The year is 2004 - Dominic Toretto, the adrenaline junkie of street car racing wants you to prove your skills on the streets of EPVIDEOS underground. After a blazing encounter with the ruthless Johnny Tran, Dom decides to take Brian O'conner a newcomer to street racing, under his wing. Little does Dom know, Brian is an undercover cop, and Dominic and his rival Johnny Tran are both the prime suspects in a case involving big-rig hijacking. Brian needs your help to bring Dom and Johnny to justice. Your mission, if you choose to accept, is to capture the essence of the first street race from the film "Fast and Furious" with your car. This means your car will require custom paint, a unique decal, head lights, taillights, and if you dare - Ground effects. Before the races, Dom will judge your cars individually on overall appearance to earn the respect of his crew and all the street racing junkies. Do you have what it takes to bring down the street race king?

Recommended Build Steps: 

Drill out diecast pins and separate body and chassis / Drill out head lights, tail lights, and ground effects / test LEDs for proper fit and wheel clearance / Strip the car of stock paint / Paint the car / set LEDs with CLEAR epoxy, make sure all wires CLEAR wheels / Set switch so it can be turned on and off through the bottom of the car / connect all wire leads to battery / make sure ALL WIRES are free from the wheels and not exposed. 

PLEASE NOTE - Twisting and bending the wires too much can cause them to become brittle and break. You may want to purchase extra LEDs because the wires do break easily. Also make sure you give yourself enough wire to work with. To start you will have too much wire but beware of trimming to much! It does have a learning curve. Practice trimming the wires and connecting to the battery before any epoxy.  Clear Epoxy works great for setting your led lights. The clear epoxy will also help give the look and feel of headlights as it allows for light to pass through the Epoxy. By making good use of the Clear Epoxy you can also have the LEDs receded into the car and the light will still pass through the Epoxy and still look very bright!
