Well i'm getting there , just need some paint that i don't have . But then again this is just a runner . This is why i have got alot of spear parts , as i do live in the middle of NO where . I am waiting for my GT 25 T motor coming .

Congratulation to your nice FAV. I have note that you had the same problems with the driver arms as i had already with my two FAV`s. The Bonnet is to loong for the hands...

very nice job so far buddy, still cleaning my fav runner from it's beach trip couple of weeks ago.... sand really do's get everywhere lol!! being a vintage still has the old hex dog-bones so getting the sand all out was a priority. Ps mine did end up in the sea (not by choice) but has lived to tell the tale, run really well on sand though so looking forward to some great off road shots with that motor .. good idea with the gears mate nice work

Thanks mongoose1983 , They are not to bad , But it will have to do with this runner .
I'm more worryed about the cheap front suspension , alot of bounce .

Fav looks great! I hope you bought lot's of bevel and spider gears too, as those are what normally strip Have fun when the new motor turns up!

Re: front susp. Parma used to do small hydraulic shocks for the Grasshopper & Hornet buggies. They do fit the FAV, and that changes the suspension dramatically. I know because I have them on mine. I believe you might be able to find a used pair.

Thanks berman , I do have some bevel & spider gears . But i will need more , as i got them for my hotshot , boomerang runners & blackfoot as well . .

Thanks Mr duke . @ mongoose1983 Ok i will look for some & i was thinking mini T shocks ?. I do have some of them i may size up . Even that the shock shaft maybe to thin .
