After seeing and reading about Crash Cramers awesome hopped up 'Dream Hotshot' a couple of weeks ago , it spurred me on to’ finish’ my vintage Hotshot.
The Vintage chassis is used and generally in good shape. All the hop ups are NOS which I collected over the years.
I love the black alloy wheels which was the starting point for this project.
The front and rear shocks are You – G, with Parma front and rear shock towers. Said it before but You-G makes some super quality hop ups. Love how solid they are.
Alloy hubs were sourced in on TC.. not sure who manufactures them, but I like them as they are alloy colored and match the wheels nicely I think. Front bumper is You-g, and the rear wing is Thorp DirtBurners.
I’ve fitted the Parma bump steer eliminator kit too. Motor is a dirt tuned Tamiya. I still have more parts to source and add, mostly for the gear boxes. I still need to install the Dirtburners alloy spindles ( steering knuckles) which are also NIP. Those took me years to find!
I cracked open my vintage body set and went with a white & candy blue body and wanted to keep the decals mainly to a few colours. I have to re-fit the front sway bar, just need to cut the body a touch more to do so.
Love the hotshot! This will go up on the block though as I just want one perfect runner!
