I won a recent ebay auction for a lightly used chassis, main reason for purchase was it included a new TM-2 tuned pipe and manifold which had eluded me for along time. Now I had a very lightly used kit plus parts in my collection to make a restored and complete set.

I have the original box and a brand new 99 WRC body set painted up and even the original manual, all which were not included in the ebay auction.

I changed the rock chipped undercowel for new, fitted front and rear alloy suspension arms, new rear uprights, added a lightweight flywheel, front universal driveshafts, replaced the rear bumper for new and gave it general clean up.

Car came fitted with full ball bearings, a reinforced prop shaft, alloy brake arm and upgraded disk brake and servos fitted.

I removed the TM-2 pipe and manifold for another chassis, fitted a new TM-3 muffler and new exhaust pipe.
