My ranger, stages of the rusty renovation!

Thanks Mad Zero, the grill and bumpers need a little rub down to reveal the chrome. I am also thinking about putting lenses in the lights, and greening them grom the inside. I need to either find or fabricate a new rear bumper, and the glass. I think I have an old Scorcher driver somewhere...........

Yeah, way too clean. Would like to find some alternative wheels for it, so I wont paint these. I like RC4WD dirt grabbers, but haven't found an obvious wheel choice yet. But here are the Bull Bars and Nerf Bars!

Absolutely, too shiney, but still at stage one. I have a bunch of weathering and dulling to do, and some rust build up in the corners etc.

The trophy truck, box art and stock
karooha MB

It sure is good for the kids, very easy on the controls, and rugged. On the grass (only!) it will bite when cornering and roll right over onto its wheels again, has the kids in stitches. I have not been able to sort the suspension out though, its just too stiff, but the shock length isn't long enough to put softer shocks in.

Brat/scorcher...with a little bling!!
blackfoot dave

I like those trailing arms. I have been eying them up too! Let us know how they go. Your ideas could make me keep my Brat and convert it. It'd fit the rest of my collection then.

My old resto scorcher
karooha MB

Cheers chaps, I enjoyed this one a lot. It had those quirky features you only get with 30 year old cars, and was such a blast to drive.

My kamtec shell on the 2010 scorcher
karooha MB

Cheers Tynhead, spot on, rolling one of these shells is not even an issue. I like them so much I even have a couple new ones waiting be painted. They are very durable, and flexible enough to rebound a little which helps prevent cracking. Top work Kamtec! Cutting the windows out wasn't easy tho. And yes, I do like the classic styles, thanks for noticing.

Brushless conversion part 3
TheOtherRacingGreen

Nice one. Where can I find a brushless Motor cover? I have just bougt an ezrun that I just have to try in my Scorcher (check my showroom) but only briefly as it is going in my Monster Beetle in the end. The problem is I can remember seeing a different motor cover, but cant find reference anywhere now. Can you help?
