Had to build it as 90% of the parts were here and the rest were taken from the Stealth Fox. In a nutshell new everything except a few screws , the wheels and the blue body in some of the shots.
Full Thorp diff setup with counter/spur gear, ball diff, driveshaft and outdrive axle conversion (resisting the temptation to use this setup in my runner Fox).
YOU-G shocks all round (really nice and I want to use them on my other Fox), black Supershot screws everywhere.
TBG body with my year number ie 1974
Original Fox body
More parts to come such as an alloy wing, new wheels and a few little bits and pieces.
More pics to follow as I update it

Great Fox and a great year, 74.
GT Tuned is a really suitable motor for vintage runners too, well done.

Thanks Thommo, I want to run it but I wont due to the amount of money I have put into it.
Its destined to be a shelf queen only. I ran the GT motor in another one of my Foxes and I am underwhelmed by brushed motors, they seemed heaps faster back in the day I have a nice safe brushless combo I run on 2s, i tried 3s but at $50 a throw for a set of gears I decided not to again after fragging a couple of spur gears the only brushed motor that really went well was a Reedy 15t I have but it kept over temping the ESC so I gave up and went brushless.

Very sexy Foxy car you got there. I like all the extras and agree with you that it would be so tempting to drive it.

WOW that looks soooo sweet I likey a lot.
I know what your talking about with the brushed motors and esc's I have just done the same with my top force!and said good night to the gears in that!! I was having a ball with it though
was using a 9.5 turn team powers set up and kept cranking up the RPM!!
