First of all, a big thank you to JennyMo who provided the inspiration. When I saw her StumpScorcher build I just had to build one :)


This has a Kamtec ABS body that I've shortened and generally hacked. The Duratrax engine needed a little trimming to fit but now fits nicely on the battery cover, and that's a Fastrax light bar on the front.


The chassis is pretty much stock WR-02 with the usual trimmings - bearings, shocks, steel pinion and blingy wheelie bar wheel.


I'm really pleased with this, I think this could be a popular beach runner this summer.


Hope you like it too :)
Cheers,
Rob

This is really great! Both JennyMo's and yours will probably get Tamiya thinking about releasing something like this! Looks like a lot of fun.

That looks great! If Tamiya released that I would buy it! Great Job.

This looks great, I really like the fuel filler and the cockpit extras and detailing. I'm sure this will be a hoot to drive!

Thanks for all the nice comments


It was fun to build and it's definitely a laugh to drive. I will try to get a video done fairly soon.

Nice work and great design. If I where you I would write to Tamiya - maybe next year there will be a Kit... You did a great job on that one.

JennyMo had me thinking about a WR-02 build, but this little beauty has me working to make it happen! Excellent job on this one!
