  1. When my Scorpion broke in around 1989 I bought a Falcon with an Escort body off a local kid. The kid was uglier than me and that's all I recall about it. The Falcon had some unpainted Wild One type rims with Schumacher Road tyres fitted but was other wise bog standard. Eventually in went into the attic at Mum & Dad's until I was forced to reclaim it around a year or so ago. At the same time I found the Scorpion http://www.rc10talk.com/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=33700 In the winter it's nice to have an indoor hobby and I try to get the kids to take a bit of interest in the mechnical elements. I try to buy as much second hand for the cars as poss but picked up some CRP bits for the Falcon, a chassic brace and some rear hub converters. Basically I always fancied a Sand Scorcher (yawn) but never going to fork out for one now so I found a second hand baja style beetle body on eBay and with the help of the original Escort body mount kit (which was still in the toolbox from 1989) and set about fitting the body to the Falcon. Inspiration came from this forum in the main especially in terms of fitting SRB rims all round, at least whilst I'm building it. The fairly horrid gold and brown paintwork is staying because a) I'm not buy brake fluid just to strip it and it not that bad a paint job so we'll call it partial rat-look. below you can see the rims that came with the car and Escort shell back in 89, on the front are some second hand SRB rims.
