streetbeastoptsman,I don't have near the experience with streetbeast that powerrodsmike does,but I have been around the block a few times.The only SB car I have personal knowledge of is my friend NEW INTERIORS car.The main car seems to be built thick enough but the body lines around the edge chip very easily.There seems to be gel coat that is way to thick. The other problem I see is if built the way you suggest the body cannot be removed from the frame.I see this as bad engineering and have never seen this in any other company's kits.His car was built several years ago. Have you done anything to improve on these problems?

I know that New Interiors has done a lot of work to correct the engineering deficiencies inherent to a StreetBeast. I have asked streetbeastopsman to start a new thread so those of us who have problems with their product can voice our concerns and have them addressed one by one.

We will see if this happens.....

Randy,

Do you have any photos in your gallery of the frame once you completed the changes on it?

The biggest problem with StreetBeast kits, other than the fact that most of them are NOT much like the original, is that in the vast majority of cases it is impossible for the average person to wind up with something like what is pictured above. They require so many modifications to correct poor design that most cars like you see above have to be built by a pro.

Just ask some of our members who have these cars...... when it comes to ease of assembly, where a Streetbeast is concerned that is an oxymoron.

HAHAHAHAHHhahahahahaah

That's priceless.... park a shiny black car next to a white rail fence to show off what kind of bodywork it has....

All those waves remind me of the beach.

If the car was straight, the rails would reflect in the paint as straight or smooth curves, not jittery jumpy lines that shift up 1/2" at a door gap...

Later, mikey
