This was my race specific build for the Revival 2WD entry, great car and bulld, just my terrible driving let it down. Yet again this racer has my chosen colour/design; A pink roof with a chequered chevron. Motor is a Sport Tuned which is perfect for this chassis, originally went for a 21t Yokomo but on test drive it was just too much power, lots of wheelies and understeer. Now has a quality Alturn servo as the futaba servo wasnt quick in terms of response. Both front and rear shocks are modified with drilled out pistons, different shock oil and different springs. Theyre almost perfect in their behaviour, just need a tad thicker oil in the front shocks. Front of chassis has an additional 120 grams of weight added which has improved handling considerably. Fitted 3mm threaded steering rods and reinforced rod ends for longevity and adjustability. One last thing, I fitted vintage Super Hornet tires to the front for better grip. Didnt fit spotlights as theyll break off once I crash, which is very likely. Really happy with it overall and cant wait to race it again.

Great Wild One being enjoyed as it should
I believe the Re-re's will be available again around September. One would be a nice addition.

That looks like a Wild One that can beat anything out there ... Nice to see the improvements on a classic!

@NETSMITH That would be fun chap, I absolutely love this buggy. Am really impressed with it, only thing is the suspension, really needs to be modified to achieve proper damping.

Looks proper mate! But spots would be good even if it's a risk! I too am a big WO fan! Awesome buggy!
