Hi all. I am so sorry for terrorizing You with these constant posts, I just want to get them in a s a p.
This is a later version that came with the red friction dampers, Sand Super Tires & TS-rims, differential, the TS roofcage with lightmounts plus that the aluminum parts such as front arms were a little more robust (same as on the Tomahawk and TS). Also, the rear suspensionstays were the same as on the TS - an improvement to prevent the dogbones from falling out. If You look carefully, You can see that the reardampers are slightly cracked which unfortunately is a common problem with these dampers and as the TS came out, the 'normal' scorpion was equipped with these as well as the TS rims and tires. Here in Europe, this later version is a pretty common sight and I can only recommend this for someone who wants a Scorpion-runner because of the more rubust alu-parts + differential and by changing the dampers, the performance increases quite a bit.
Thx for looking and have a great weekend! :)
