This is my GB01 Hornet, Shadow edition. It is a little brother to my 1/10 Hornet rere, as far as paint goes - but that's where the similarity ends. I loaded up on a buttload of silver GPM parts when I saw some stupid deals on the 'bay some months ago. Also hooked up some lights and 3racing dampers. There's a sweet black brushless system in there too, but mostly it's going to sit on my shelf and look bad-ass. Details below:




HOP-UPS:

3Racing dampers (anodizing removed and bits polished shiny)

GPM Alu. turnbuckles

GPM Alu. arms

GPM Alu. gearcase

GPM Alu. shock towers

GPM Alu. hub carriers

GPM Alu. servo saver

GPM Alu. front body mount

Tamiya silver wheel nuts

Kyosho 'Bridgestone' tires

Hyperion 5000kv brushless motor

HK 2.4ghz GT receiver



CUSTOM STUFF:

custom painted chrome wheels

tire lettering in white

custom painted body (did a few layers of smoke for translucent effect)

3Racing LED light set

Another one! This one is very, very nice. The looks are very agressive. Rear tires are a nice touch. Best TTG buggy collection on TC.

That's the most attractive Hornet I've ever seen. And that's says something since it's a Tamtech which I'm not to fond of. WOw!

I love what youve done with this. I also love the little red part on the bridgestone tire lettering. I guess I gotta pull my bridgies down off the shelf for a little doodling

Thanks again guys, one more in my TTG collection to go, and one to update The red in the Bridgestone is part of their official logo so I incorporated it. I did actually try (2 attempts) to paint the striping on the body, but it's a rather difficult scheme to do really well. One effort yield stupid blunders, the other fouled up due to scratches and fingerprints, doh! I gave up on that idea and just used the decals this time around. I guess with those other bodies, I've no excuse not to do a few runs with this, eh? - Personally interested to see how the Hyperion motor performs

Thanks again for all the comments.
