  1. Cool, I’ve been visualising Mud Blaster that are still floating around on that same chassis but with a Quad Trax body on would look quite smart I think, (pretty much a Bush Devil 2) As if I need any more project ideas circling around in my head 😉
  2. 👍🏻 Just out of curiosity mate, what is your 1st & 2nd in the leaderboard to run??
  3. As my wheels aren't HPI, I took a chance on them fitting. I haven't cut anything off the tyres at all, the insides were just the same a normal low profile tyre with a small rebate that sits on the edge of the rim. But the outside had a lip on it that sat over the outside edge of the rim. If I tucked the lip inside the rim the tread lost its shape (looking like a flat tyre) whereas with the lip over the edge the tread was nice and flat how it should be if that makes sense @mtbkym01 ?
  4. I had some Silicone on the go from yesterday so set about sticking some HPI ‘vintage’ tyres to the ebay alloy rims. I was concerned when I dry fitted them that they didn’t sit right but that was before I realised that the outside edge of the tyre sits over the rim of the wheel to give the illusion of a wider profile tyre which is why I got them in the first place. It should suit the look of the MK1 Escort body they are eventually destined for…… I hope…
  5. @JennyMo ‘made’ one fit a WR02, check out her showroom there’s some fantastic stuff in there, https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=130097&id=25648 @Grastens also did a brilliant job with a Lancia body… https://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=127007&id=36210
  6. Goodbye back tyres 👋🏻👋🏻👋🏻, that’s the last time you’ll see them like that 😆 Those Black body shells buff up nice just with some automotive polish, there’s a few around that are plastic safe, but I have a sneaking suspicion that the motor will end doing more damage than any polish would. Enjoy it. Edit :- Just keep an eye on the suspension arm screw pins as the have a habit of backing out.
  7. Have you clicked on the ‘Enter Competition’ button in the blue box on the left of the screen mate??
  8. Thank you my friend, this is the bumper I used.. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/322891084335?hash=item4b2dcef22f:g:7YIAAOSwIgNXjC2n There’s a few other sellers that sell them I have a couple now and some Truck Exhaust Stacks from this vendor. Enjoy your build looking forward to seeing what you do with it 👍🏻
