I had already posted this but somehow deleted it whilst trying to add more pics, so here it is again. I bought this from the original owner, came with box, manual, Technigold & lots of new spares. I immediately bought a new body & repro decals, new tyres, the rest was in really good condition. I really wanted to do something different than Boxart as there seemed to be so may done this way, so, I painted the body with pearlescent clear, than black, then white, so in the sunlight the black is metallic, I painted the front & rear shock towers black, threw out the yellow shocks & replaced them with yeahracing chrome items. I also had the drivers roll cage, airdam & exhausts chrome plated , then I sprayed them with Tamiya gloss to give that alloy look. What was it with Tamiya & yellow plastic? I also painted the engine block silver for some detail as well. New bumper has been cut down as I think it looks better like that. I think the rack & pinion steering is brilliant! It won't be to everyones liking, but I'm wrapped with it! It will be my 4WD vintage racer, a lipo should get that Technigold going! SO I got to have my first drive today, even though this will be my vintage 4WD racer, it was a beautiful winter day so Dom & I took it to the beach for a shake down.
This thing flies!!!!!!!!! The handling is awesome, it seems to stick to the ground very nidely, I can't wait to get it on the track.
enjoy the pics
