I had an Idea about creating an Optima shelled 2wd from some Ultima parts I had . I set about making an aluminuim chassis plate and alu. upper deck and front and rear shock towers . I was offered an Optima shell by superlumnial - cheers :) , and was also helped out with parts and motor by jonboy1 and Wez-li - cheers guys . I wanted the 4wd look and so I modified some Frog / Hornet front wheel inners to look like rear wheels but with bearings , some plastic card and special bearings and job done . I modified some Wild One rear wheel holder to narrow the rear trck . Driver supplied by NulnOiltycoon :) thumbs up mate . Tyres are Hornet type and shox are generic

Looks great! Real old school with those Hornet/Frog tires! Very nice result on the body's paintjob. How does it handle with those wide tires up front?

I haven't had a chance to run it outside yet , but it seems to handle ok on the short runs I've had indoors , very responsive.

Super cool. Looks rock solid. I also like the idea with the second front bumper in the rear.

You saw that Ossi1977 - thanks . I thought it was a nice touch to finish the back round the motor
