Recommended Posts

Actually I restore my old Boomerang on an original configuration.

During the time where a search some parts , i have rediscover the famous Sand Scrocher...

I have decide to make a "great Sand Scorcher" with some modification:

- new paint and stickers

- some accessories

- news rims

I have received a news orginal kit last month

I will be watching this with interest as one of my main dailys is sandscorcher, im trying to figure out which is the best tyres to get hold of the tyres I've got are original from the 80s and a bit perished but useable,

I'm keen to see how the ball diff is aswell as I keep flipping mine over when on tarmac

I actually like the double deck method, nowadays also available by RC Channel:

http://www.rcchannel.com.tw/product_info.php?cPath=26&products_id=494

I cut one myself but for the price I wouldn´t bother.

It greatly stiffens the chassis, also when crashing and saves the body cracking by flexing to banana style during the crash...

 

Thanks for the advice

I just pass the order with some acessories

I had the 3d printed versions of those wheel arch liners. I epoxyed them in and later realised i couldnt get the windscreen in when they were in place without bending out the bodyshell (which cracked the paint id put on it)

It might be worth do a trial fit of everything first.

I hope he can fix it too.  I have this on my SRB and I love the way Paul's parts update the rear suspension but still look vintage.
