      Model Scale: 1/8 Rating:  Thanks: 0

      Has anybody actually seen the Interactive 8th scale R/C Boydster II? It looks reasonably good in pictures but some say the scale is not 8th. I'm just curious.

    Heres the actual specs Size 25"l x 11"w x 7.5"h, Weight 6 lbs.

    Heres a site to get one.

    Thanks for that Dan. Rumor has it that one of our guys has been working on one in the dungeon, possibly for future production some day.

    Take two chrome lug nuts now and one every 6 hours. That should clear up that condition.

    What is a "Salt Lake" kind of way? Could it be a little crusty?

    Lets not be too hard on Boyd, I'm sure at one time or another he actually built Hot 8th Scale Boydster II Rods. The stuff he does (or has done for him now) just doesn't float my boat...but what do I know?

    Can you say sterile. HOWEVER, I consider Boyd's Whatthehay one of the greatest examples of automotive art produced by any shop even if Marcel and others had big parts in its creation.:>

    Somebody must like what he does. He sells alot of rods and has his own TV show.

    'In a salt lake kind of way' I think with some work it could be made into a cool salt lake race car. Loose the fenders and that UGLY windscreen, Potvin Blown Hemi in it, I beam front QC out the back, surplus aircraft seat and steering wheel. Make it an early 60s stretched street roadster?

    Or am I just

    I actually sell them. I have a dedicated website of them and hopefully you can see the videos I have taken to show it working.
