Just opened up the holy grail.....

Yes my Tamiya brothers, it had to be done; just to see what it might have felt like in 1982...and yes, it was as exciting as anything I've ever built/done in r/c cause I'm poppin' its cherry all at the same time as well ;) We should all be doing this if you feel like you're never gonna sell it or think you'll retire from its worth, cause it just isn't gonna lets enjoy it for what it is right? ;) Everything I acquire, I build......Hope you'all enjoy! Just posted an update.....

Custom platinumized 'super red bull champ'

Thank you all for the compliments! :)

Custom platinumized 'super red bull champ'

To answer a few questions:

@OCD: You and I were thinking the same thing about this Livery as that was my very goal! You're pretty sharp Steve..;)

@ToyKid: Yes, the yellow was chosen for the fact that the decals, driver and Red Bull theme were already red and the Yellow bars just added that perfect contrast-Thanks for noticing!

@Crash Cramer: When I took that pic I thought the same thing! And speaking of the Rear Sus. Kit; I'm actually building the Re-Re SRB with that on it and it will be all Platinumized! So check back for that in a few weeks-just waiting for the parts to come back:)

@henrikw: Yes the decals are all original from various SRB/3-Speed sticker sheets that were selected for their color, theme, etc. and just cleared over.

@Wyoming: Yes, I plan to run it, but very carefully;)

@metallifits &WW-nut: LOL, No, I don't drink Red Bull, but I love their color scheme and the fact that they sponsor alot of off-road type events so I had to go with it...:) I have a friend who does drink'em so I had him save the empty ones for me for my display pics, but I honestly can't stand the taste or the caffeine.
@technical.burp: Thats a great idea for a photo op! I might try that since the cans are empty and very light to crash through..LOL...;)
@swedishwiking: No, the rims are Parma's that I won off of eBay a few months back.
@ ALL that left the very kind comments; I greatly appreciate you stopping by and taking the time to leave them and appreciate my hard work; it puts a smile on my face every time-
Thanks my tamiya bros.....
