Re release 2011 new built kit .
Lovely kit to build and looks superb when finished .
Dare I run it ?

This kit has lots of parts and is well made and put together .
I just love the driver details and patience pays of when it comes to detailing this model .
If I'm not brave enough to run this I will possibly pick up another used 2011 Avante in the future when funds allow so I can run the legend !!!


Turned out pretty well if I may say so myself Lol !!!
Lots of folk are against re release but without them nib models like this would be out of reach from folk like myself !!!

I'm not sure I'm able to not run it... too much curious to experience how it handles, how it performs...
Probably I will buy an Egress re-re... will be a runner, of course

I would have a hard time NOT driving this! The driving experience is just as important as the stunning looks in my opinion. Great job!

Same here, if it wasn't for the re-re I wouldn't have the Avante either! I think you should go for the 2nd runner option, this will always look good on your shelf!

Agree with the other guys here..these are awesome and you should run it! That what's so great about the re-re's: you get to assemble a 'vintage' kit and run it without worrying about destroying a 25+ year old original. Can't wait for the re-re Egress!!

The Avante is an amazing runner. I run my rere now and then. At first I wasn't that impressed, but then I threw on some other wheels/tires, and dang, that made a world of difference.

I still take good care of it, but is great driving these things once a while.

Awesome example you have here.

Wow, looks great. Re-res are great. I haven't purchased a Re-re myself, but my original Top Force was recently able to compete at a Vintage meet because parts are available! Many of the original parts had stress fractures and needed replacement. Racing vintage was the BEST race meeting I ever had the pleasure of attending! My advice is to keep the lovely body for display and get your self another for racing. WHilst the old cars look good on the shelf, they look even better on the track!
