Just put the finishing touches on my Hotshot. Picked this up as a box of parts a while ago and I'm quite pleased with the result. I added some You-G, Parma and CRP goodies. The wheels and tires are from a ebay seller in Hong Kong. I think they look rather nice on the 'Shot. Thanks to Chris B. (Crash Cramer) for the new roof! Much appreciated! I decided to go with a 'less is more' philosophy regarding the decals. Please forgive my feeble attempt at photography! :-)

Really nice and great `off-road` look.
Nice wheels too. Well done!

Some nice angles, I've seen plenty worse attempts at photography on here.

Nicely done. I like the simplicity of the decals and the black shell/ wheels.
Are you going to run this? You should!

That 's a great looking Hotshot, very beautiful. I hope it will inspire Tamiya for a black Special edition of the Hotshot like yours

I think Tamiya should have done something like this instead of the 'Metallic Special'...

Wicked looker there. I like the less is more and I can spot some Smoke Stack extra parts on there. I am sad to say, they will be closing in a few months, so better get your butt back over there soon all you Columbus area folks. The wheels and tires look cool, but I think in keeping with the Vintage feel, the fronts should be a bit narrower. Nice bumper too, who made that one??

Thanks Chris. yeah, I thought about the whole front wheel thing, but figured that if Kyosho went wide up front with their vintage stuff, why not? The bumper is from JG.

I think you have updated some photos here, this is looking like one of the meanest HS on TC. It has me thinking.

Yeah, I did update with some new/better pix. You need to get your HS together! Thanks for the comment!
