'R' is for racing! Well I know that the Blitzer family never was intended to be racing cars. But I enjoy improving every aspect of a car to make it a better performer and even surprise one or two 'better' cars on the track.
First I wanted to have a proper steering system, other than the wobbly direct-link servo-saver steering.
I was looking at other cars and found the M-07 steering might fit.
I ordered the Yeah Racing aluminium-version and made it fit. My trusty Savox 1257TG Servo was repositioned.
Steering-links and upper wishbones were exchanged by titanium links by 3racing. Steel balls and TRF ball cups were also added.
Next up were the shocks. As in some of my other project cars the excellent Losi 22 shocks are used in my Blitzer too.
The beautiful but heavy Beetle body had to go and a lexan-beetle (by Kamtec) took its place.
In part 2 of the report you see which motor and speedo I use and maybe some more improvements.
Tell me what you think so far.

Project DF-01 - ready!
