I had this old Fighter Buggy in my closet which was our Team car from a endurance FB-race back in the 90's (see pic from the original race)
I always had the vision to add a Scorcher body and one or two chassis-improvements to it. Now was the time to do it, because we added a 'beam-axle'-class to the VOREM2019 - the germen vintage meeting.
The front-end was modified by adding DT02/02 wishbones and and upright and a GPM aluminium brace after modifying the front bumper.
The upper links were made using a 3mm threaded rod with a carbon-tube over it to strengthen it all.
What looks unusual is the steering rod and the inverted steering parts to lessen the bump-steer.
I added Tamiya CVA-shocks with 25WT oil, wich seemed quite perfect.
The Tamiya TBLE-02S speedo was a good choice to power the Carson Cup Machine motor with 19T steel pinion.
The body of choice was a Sand Scorcher lexan replica by Kamtec. I tried to do a baja-style paint job.
I hope you like it. ;)
