Well this one kinda fell together! The chassis sat on ebay for a while so I snatched it up. I came with Hot Trick arms and front bumper support, CRP wheels and was missing some chassis parts. The gears were also heavily worn/stripped so they were replaced with a new counter gear from an Ultima (plastic) and a used Thorp center gear. I found some gold shocks for the rear from a Slingshot to complete the suspension. Dave sent me this body, I'm sure it must be from Parma, thanks Dave! I tried to remove the paint, but it was applied very thick so I have decided to keep it instead. I cleaned it a and touched up some of the gold trim, and I am pleased with its looks. I plan to run it in the yard with modern electronics, but have stalled because I am still missing the servo mounting plate. Enjoy this blast from the past!
