Well i have been accumulating these fav 2011 parts for a while- mostly won in auctions and the intention is to sell it on to my brother when finished. It is currently missing only the tyre set but everything else is here. I wont paint it or decal it just incase he does not want it so i can sell it on and let someone else have that fun!!! will add pictures on completion as well .

(kit does not include the pictured lighter lol)

ps mad-bee , you still missing a fav or wild one out of your favourite four ? think you need to get one buddy - can't speak for the wild one as it has only been used on the grass but the fast attack is a fun buggy and great turning circle even on sand!!! (just not in the sea -ouch bad memory lol) will keep an eye out for your next purchase regards hot rod

These are great fun & the wild one is even better . So i can't wait for the wild one shock set for the FAV on the 19 nov some time .
What a nice hall you have there .

cheers matman, my own wild one is 90% new parts but ideally needs a new chassis, the one it has is perfect for a runner but not a shelfer. Agree about the fav being fun as it has that classic early tamiya handling.. cheers hot rod

Me to i love the FAV and its a fantastic car for drifting and actualy running in autumnal, foliage streets. Cheers Stefano

greetings my good friend stefano (alfettalimo) this is my fourth fav lol... too many some may say but it really is a close copy of the original, obviously uses the later moulding of the wild one chassis and E-parts but apart from that and the new frog drivetrain (better than the hex drive) is really good. Cant agree with you more about the handling , good vintage 2wd fun. Good to hear from you regards hot rod

Mr Bee will bee a happy man now . I'm sure you didn't sting him with the price LOL .
So it didn't come with the lighter , But it did come with the wallet & mouse LOL .

ha ha , yes was a fair price and not sure if mr bee is a smoker or not so left the lighter out of the deal lol. As for the mouse and lighter well the mouse worked fine but the wallet was a week or two before pay day so was a little on the skinny side lol. Cheers buddy
