Hi guys, first thing l got to say is pictures don't do this justice! These need to be seen in the flesh! I picked this up brand new built with box for a really good price! Very happy indeed!I just had to finish the body with the decals & some lacquer!
These are so funky cool in my opinion l have always wanted one because of the way these look! Yes l know it's a bit in your face but that's why!!
It's a shelfer at the moment but l could end up running this one??
I hope you like it and thanks for looking in!
Cheers James.

Great find, nothing wrong with that livery, the more character the better I reckon.
If you do decide to run it the stock rear tyres virtually disappear before your eyes on hard surfaces. Mine lasted 2 or three packs I think it was. Proline & Schumacher Vee’s are popular replacements.

Thanks guys yeah those rears will be fine for the beach but would melt on any hard surface for sure! I am not sure why tamiya made them with so little on them?
