Chassis was originally built to be a runner with an Aluminium Chassis / Front Bumper (from Twinset), modern buggy shocks, modern buggy wheels, a sport tuned motor, a CRP brass idler gear, CRP strut brace, hardened UJs and a kamtec radio box to fit a standard stick pack and direct connected servo. The shocks, wheels and front bumper have now been used on a proper runner I am building but the rest of the chassis is unchanged.

I have added an RC channel front bumper which matches nicely with my homemade one at the rear. The shocks are original vintage scorcher items fitted with CRP coil over kits (without the ugly red lower ends provided in the kit), the wheels are chromed Buggy Champs with original vintage tyres. The gearbox, drive shafts, suspension parts and roll bar are all original vintage scorcher.

I lack the ability, time and patience to do a good paint job on a hard shell so the body and exhaust are from eBay (TAMIYA_SPAIN, Thanks for a great shell Luis!)

Original (Mostly) Chassis and Re-release Body Shiney in the sun CRP Coilover shocks and RC Channel Bumper Kamtec Radio Box, Direct Servo, ESC and 7.2V Pack Ready to Run

Thanks for all the kind comments. I'm afraid all credit for the body must go Luis (eBay TAMIYA_SPAIN)
