Scorchie
Old Fella

Thanks for the comments, The photography was done to my son. The camera had a delay of about a second. I just got shots of a pile of sand :) The car is great fun, built to be run hard, It has a few hopups but the best are the cable ties round the front arms. Before I used them I trashed 3 front ends:)

Thanks for the coments, The lead rings go inside the tyres To lower the centre of gravity. Makes the car climb better and its less likely to roll over when at an angle. I`ve heard that some folks just fill the tyres with gravel or sand and have the same results.

Needed the cash at the time :( Still It`s fun getting together my new scorcher. Wouldnt have bothered if I still had this one. The shell was unpainted, but I realy like the plain white colour.

1/6 scale of a real rough rider
Old Fella

Thanks for the coments. They say the scale is 1/6 of a real rough rider but it looks a little smaller than that to me. Nothing on your 1/35 scorchers. they are just the best I`v ever seen :)

Scorchie

I was going to fix some super champ servo posts to the chassis but as I wanted the steering central didnt want to drill right at the edge of the chassis so used double sided tape as a stop gap. It`s been so good the posts are still in the spares box. :)

The chassis is now on my rat baja runner
Old Fella

Thanks folks, Funny you should mention stealth Roger, I guess it does, but I hadnt thought of it like that before. I do have a matt black baja bug shell on the way for it though ;) Ben the chassis is by a great tc member called Twinset.

Ebay bargin
Old Fella

Thanks guys, I`m really pleased with it. As it turned out not so brave, but if my sniper had bid up it what I`d set it to, now that would be brave :) I paniced almost at the auction end and went to lower the bid but my computer crashed. I couldnt belive my eyes when I got the laptop started and saw what it went for. :)

Cheers Thanos, I`ve got another Scorher that only has the wings and bonett parts painted but this one has come up way better. Must have been all that horrible black paint looking after the shell for years. I should have the green goo tomorrow, cant wait to try it on the last tiny bits and driver :) I`ve heard about the oven cleaner but dont think i can get it here.
