I invested a lot more time in this than normaly needed, because I wanted to create the ultimate retro-racer. I started from scratch with a +9mm long wheelbase carbon chassis from Fibre Lyte / UK. Gearboxes were used stuff from a TA-02 kit.
All the aluminium parts are from eBay. Shocks are Losi 22. DIY gearbox brace, Kyosho Lazer Wing mount.
The blue Tamiya star wheels compliment the multicolour paintjob nicely (inspired by Jeff Koons 2010 Le Mans BMW art car)
I hope you like it.

Hey man, I was wondering if you had a parts list for this as I've got an old DF-01 which I'd love to upgrade into something this nice

I don't have a parts list - sorry. The aluminium parts are from ebay (just look for manta ray aluminium)
The carbon parts are custom made by Fibrelyte (https://www.fibre-lyte.co.uk) and the rest was found in my big pile of spare parts boxes

Oh yeah, how could I miss this one from you Joerg! It´s such a beauty and performer at the same time! Great paintjob, and great details. Battery brace looks also interesting, from which company did you take it? 100 of 100 Points from my side, makes want to restore my Top Force after all these years...

Thank you very much ruebiracer,
One battery brace is original Top Force and the other one is from an old Losi. I think XX-T maybe
