But well worth it! A fun build and a distinct, cool looking buggy. Are you going to paint it box art, or your own creation?

A few of these popping up now. Half wish I'd held out and bought a new one rather than a 'pre-loved' one lol

That said, I still have a body to paint, just not sure what colour :unsure:

Enjoy the build, from messing about with mine they're nice to put together B)

Finally got round to starting the build today. Must say I am impressed with the quality. 

Mostly aluminium parts with some high quality plastics thrown in.

Diff and gearbox where already built but seem exceedingly sturdy. Hex head screws and bearings throughout.

It's going together very nicely!

Are these in stock anywhere? Really looking for one

Doesn't look like it does it. I got mine back in November. Everyone got stock around the same time and I got mine from modelsport that day. Wheelspin sold out the same day. Modelsport a few days later...

Modelsport are saying April for new stock. 

Think it's going to have a burnt orange theme.

Finally got round to painting this. It was meant to be burnt orange but the paint I got wasn't what I was expecting it to be, kinda like a gold see through sort of thing. By the time I sprayed it I had ruined it. So went for a sort of rat look. Didn't work very well....
