This will be my weapon of destruction in the upcoming Nordic Vintage Challenge #7.


See full build tread link in the 1st comment. Notice the 'inline' electronics made possible by using a super shorty lipo and a shoe horn.


Thx for looking & please leave a comment! :-)

Nicely finished off, good use of racing decals and wicked touch to the day glow colours on the rims.
Top work buddy.....

Looks like a killer. Excellent work! What about white rims?

Thx! Yes I agree, white (or black) would have been better. I had some yellow fronts already. I'll get that sorted in the future...

Nice! Clever conversion to an inline battery placement.
Suits this beautiful chassis perfectly.

Great job, that thing must fly!
Great build thread as well, I'm honoured it features a pic of my Ultima Custom Special!

Maybe I've missed it, but what motor are you running? Looks like a vintage LeMans brushed motor, but can't see which one?

It's a 19T brushed Reedy. I'll likely swap it with a Trinity Epic 19T.

Sweet car,,,really well done! I had a nice Ultima back in 2005 that I restored and then sold on TC...wish I would have kept it!

Holy cow, talk about your weapon of mass distraction, now I can't wait to find out about this turning into a weapon of mass destruction on the track. It sure looks greater than any Kyosho I had seen back then, if I had thought this far out of the box back then, I would have owned a Kyosho.

Thx guys! I expect this car to be re-released in 2017, time will tell... As to performance a similar car already won the last NVC race in style

Very cool! Wheels are sensational. I like how you squeezed all the electronics so neatly too
