Hi folks, This is my second RC build (I’ll post the details on the first later on). so, the project is based on Kyosho Pureten Alpha 3 EP, which I bought in unworking condition without a body shell. At first, I was thinking just to restore the chassis and put any body shell to use it as a basher. As you know, the wheelbase of the puretens is not standard (265mm in my case), so I was quite limited in options. In the result, I bought a Carson lancia stratos body. While awaiting the body, the chassis was completely rebuild, diff gears replaced (I bought another donor GP chassis) and greased with marine grease (Motul). A new futaba servo was installed. The radio and ESC are currently standard but already ordered 2.4 radio and Hobbywing 1060 ESC. The motor is a standard one - Kyosho Xspeed 27T, will see how it runs on a 2s when everything was replaced. And of course the chassis was fully equipped with bearings instead of standard metal bushings. Runs smooth, but need to do something with servosaver plastic o-ring which looks to be very soft causing steering to be imprecise. so, the body arrived, already trimmed. Sits not as perfect as Tamiya shells, but will see what will be the final result) oh, yes, forgot to mention. It will be painted orange (Tamiya PS7) with Porsche No. 117 livery ))) Planning to paint it tomorrow)))
Going to build a Lancia Stratos. I have always loved this body! Using HPI body and wheels, and BSR MRage chassis kit. I couldn't find the exact wheels in yellow, so I had to get them in white and paint them yellow. That's as far as I got so far. So this will be a combined HPI Stratos Body / BSR Mrage build thread. The chassis kit that I am using HPI body I am using HPI wheels after they were painted
