More stuff to try and hide from the missus!

Only just opened the mini box & it’s stuffed full of extra parts from various M03 models & even some original decals which I desperately needed!

It looks identilcal as my Carson Dragster Shooter SL 10T comboy esc is very similar and motor can.

and rear tires for my F103LM, with some aluminium weights/stiffeneres I will try to integrate.

The itch that needed to be scratched! Thank God I’m the only person with a key to the garage! I’ve wanted one of these for ages, but they’re either immaculate and way too expensive, or reasonably priced & total heaps! This is somewhere in the middle 😊 First job will be to strip the black paint off (especially the windows) and use a different less harsh colour instead on the body.

It looks great, I had luck and got a 1000TCR re-re body set and a new M05 ver2 chassis and built it :)

very nice model from tamiya

RCON RS200 body from racecraft rc. 

Project Tamiya RR-03Ra RCON Ford RS200 body

So lovely in the plastic, and I didn't realise it comes with a full decal set too. Very excited about this body

Eek! So want one of these shells but I must finish at least in other project first!!

What colour will it be? I’ll have to ask my Dad if he still has the photos of the road car that used to be in the dealership in Strood. Sure we took some. I remember it being white. Can’t remember what the wheels were like and doubt there would be 1:10 equivalents. 

Can you tell that I have shell envy?!

@Badcrumble It's such a rad shell. I am not sure if I will use the decals or not. They are the works Ford colours scheme with a white shell colour.

Rcon RS200 shell

I am tempted to do it metallic blue which is the modern Ford Performance colour. Maybe try some masked stripes similar to the decals in white to give it the right look. Not sure yet.

That’s really weird. After Cy posted, I googled and found some TC posts from 2010 and the TC entry for Controlfreax. As the website link was broken I thought ‘eight years on? No chance!’.

Is that one from the man himself? The roof scoop detail on those is great. What’s the wheelbase?

I got it from ebay! I haven't seen one in years so grabbed it 😉

Here it is placed on a tb evo II (minus body posts) which if tamiya are right, it's a 257mm wheelbase .

not a great phone but it does line up with the arches

Nice. So much want. Really can’t justify it. Especially without a chassis it could go on.

Got a good deal on a new discontinued Traxxas Telluride roller so there is that. A pig graffiti body for the Stampede and a Kinexsis ESC and 3000kv motor for the Telluride.

Agreed!  In some strange way I kind of like the look of that!

Curiosity got the better of me. A £6 Quicrun 1060 clone/unbranded version. About half the price of the cheapest genuine ones.

I doubt very much that it's waterproof but if it performs the same otherwise then it might be an ok option for backup/experimenting with stuff.

I take it back, the circuit board actually has a good covering of conformal coating on it so it might be at least splash proof. I'm still not in a hurry to test that aspect though lol.

Same, recently scored a new bodyset with wheels recently. Waiting for a proper RR chassis to put under it.
