RE-Xtreme RC 210 DLM GT2 FD3s

Drift Le Mans? I Wondered what kind of liveries would appear on Mazda race cars these days.

This RENOWN based color scheme is a mix of the white Efini sponsored cars post 787B LE-Mans win.

The green is simply impact. 19" Rays Volk Racing RE-30 in green should simply be on all race cars.

Up against my own FD, we may see something happen in the future, but I don't forsee it attracting this much attention. But then again it's been done before. A bit of vinyl here and there.

Anyway, this is mounted on a Yokomo Drift Package that usually runs 190mm body.
This is 200mm HPI Mazdaspeed FD3s body
D-Stage RE-Amemiya Facer, Side Skirts and Rear Fenders.
D-Stage Mazdaspeed R-Spec Diffuser,
Yokomo S15 Wing and
Yokomo Craft Square Mirrors.

It's 210mm at the rear and the HPI RE-30 Wheels with T-Drift RE-11 32mm +6mm Offset all round. The rear requires +6mm Rear Axles.

Although it looks like a GT2 car, It will be drifted.

I'll post some Videos on Vimeo when I get around to it. Stance, clearance and some small details need to be addressed.


RE-Xtreme LM RC

Finished Almost.

The wing is a yokomo S-15 GT wing that came with craft square GT Mirrors.

Mounting was a pain. I spaced the front and rear fenders with 5mm rubber gromets to meet the 190mm body.

In the end I got there. i haven't played with stance or steering angle, but it will have to be lower to clear the body pieces on full lock with these wheels.

Very Happy... I need a few more stickers and some colour on the rear wing. but thats all in time.

Next will be an out door shoot.

Pumped and mad.

Not 100% finished yet. Still RE-Xtreme decals and Efini Logos to add.

But looking good.

Can't wait to mount it and get sliding.


I love it when a plan comes together.

Preparation 7

It's still going to take a while to finish this. Getting the panels to line up perfectly and in the right place is no easy job.

I had a few runs due to impatience and paint incompatibility. Transparent silver and black didn't like each other in 10 degree ?HEAT? not ideal.

Anyway, it will tidy up nicely in the next few days. Still pissed about the side skirts.


Paint Mistake! Ahhh!

With sooooo many pieces I was bound to screw something up.

I have to rush these days with limited free time.

5 colours for this body. I thought I had it all in the right place. But!!!!!!


I dicovered later. I forgot to paint the rear of the sideskirts the lightest shade. Grrrr!

Time for lots of stickers in that area!


Yeah Baby!!!

Castrol Green Rays Volk Racing RE-30!

Gonna be cool!

Scheme colours

A bit of a departure from white, but I feel a silver combo with two shades of gun metal and carbon will allow for a better accent with bright fluro green lines. I'll be painting the wheels also.

Stay tuned.

Paint should flow in the next few days... after the bad weather passes.

Masking Time

It's turning out to be pretty special. My combination of the Renown design and Efini colours will look pretty good I think.
Dashed lines will be silver, There will be some gun metallic and white with varying levels of pearl and transparancy.

Slightly changes with the dimensions of the body of course. small changes to make it all line up.
Just have to cut a few more masks then it's paint time!

210mm not forgotten.

Why 210? Because this is the HPI 200mm shell + 10mm kit. It's going to be pretty cool!

This is the first time I have strapped the body panels together and I must say, Its got good dimensions.
Body colour white and transparent silver backed with white.
Silver Renown colour scheme.
RE-30 may become white!

Anyway, I have been busy with my real car, so the mini FD has had to wait.

BTW, I found my 10 year old MiniZ. Have to sort this out.... one day.

Livery revised...

This body may take a while. I have a new 1:1 so the image may change to vaguely replicate what may never happen there.

Renown influence, Efini influence, Street Warrior.
