Took advantage of having a couple of days off work to finish off my DT02 Sand Rover 2011. It's pretty much there now just needs a pinion to sort. I wanted to keep it simple but still add my own twist mods are: Sand Scorcher rear lights and number plate light, Proline Spots, Alloy Cage, re-trimmed Willy and new centre bezzell. Also swapped the kit wheels for the black version. Chassis wise it has full bearings, 3racing oil shocks and stiffener. Power comes from a Sport Tuned at the moment but will go brushless at some point. This car should be my racer for the DT02 Challenge. Thanks for lookng..

lovely - the orange edge to the wheel rims really complements the body colour and makes the Gulf theme work outside of it normal race car mould
