Super Fox finally done, quick recap on mods, everything New/NOS.
You-G shocks and wing, Parma Arms, Tamiya swaybar, Thorp Counter gear ball diff and dog bones, alloy wheels, Orion V2 motor.
All screws are semi black off the new Supershot as well as anodized blue M3 and M4 nuts. Also have new Proline chrome lightweight wheels as well as NOS Fox gold wheels as well.
I display it with the alloys as it suits the color scheme the best :)

Thanks to the following TC members for parts etc (in no particular order) Thanks to Beefmuffin,Bullfrog,Unclepunchy and Fritjofarnold. This was truly an international build with parts from Australia, Sweden , USA and the UK

That's one of the best Fox's I've seen. Fantastic!

That looks very nice. I must say I am jealous of the chrome Proline 5 star wheels, can't seem to find any of those easily. That wing is a nice adaptation as well, looks a lot like one I have on my HotShot.

VERY NICE. Like the alloy wheels. I'd go with black nuts, though. I have a thing for black nuts. OK, that previous sentence was just gratuitous.

Thanks guys, the wing is indeed a You-G Hotshot wing , I didnt want to redrill the original wing mounts in case I want to mount the original wing again so I used the steering linkage protectors to mount it gives it the nice billet look, originally I had pink nuts on the wheels beef and to the comment on the best Fox ever seen, I am biased but I do agree and its the result I was after

The pics dont show it to well but the paint is a Tamiya metallic with a black back coat, it sparkles in the sun

forgot to mention about the Proline wheels, scored them from Ebay with a BIN , right time and place for me I also have Orange Super Hornet wheels thanks to beefmuffin, NOS gold Fox wheels thanks to bullfrog, another set of Prolines in white and the alloys as well. I nearly do a wheel change every day of the week lol

I wondered where those Super Hornet wheels ended up. No regrets, love helping out fellow TC guys. I have a spare Proline here and there, I should send them to you for mouting Baja style to your Fox.

Hey Crash would be very keen to see what Pro-line stuff you have and talk about you parting with things that take my fancy..... I am on the lookout for an Orion Revolution with a blue endbell, Peak (Vantage) and Tamiya (Transpeed) motors are the same. If anyone has one with a new BLUE endbell or a whole motor for sale pleae let me know so I can finish my Fox, unless someone has a new Trinity Monster or Worlds Champion motor for sale ?

Can't believe I didn't comment on this one....totally awesome!! Love the alloy wheels, front spiked tires and other subtle detailing. Nice work.

It took a lot of time and money to get all the bits to get it this way so all the positive comments let me know I have achieved my goal. I could have made it a nice box art stocker but then that all it would ever be. I tried to stay true to the box art but enhance it to make it truly stand out as a one of a kind Fox.
