    nah, its an "animated GIF" file... a lot of pic editing programs can do it,
    both standalone utililties or biggies like Photoshop.

    can use same to make fancy blinking icons for your website or any other web graphic

    I have done GIFs in Photoshop, but MS GIF Maker is free and will let you do the basic animation.

    Forget about how you made the pic do that.... The bodies look great! I love the paint jobs. Where did you get all the decals?

    Yes, sorry about the derail action. The bodies look great. Do you drive with the bear inside? Panda?

    It's nice to see a 4x4 lid other than the usual Traxxas RTR scheme (Jenkins bros, Whelchel, Adler, etc). Gret work!

    nah, there's no room for him inside AND the battery
    (hence rideheight looks too high too)

    bear got stuffed inside to showoff the variably tinted windows
    (rear > side > windscreen which is just about clear)
