A huge transformation has taken place, CRP chassis droproprop at front, coil overs on front, curently has black sprint motor and esp, ballrace troughout. I've now droproproped the thorp ball diff into this one plus brass idler gear. I had to do the extra roll bar as the added weight of the cassis could total the windsreen. Big Thanks to racingmaster, tobias and the usual suspects.
UPDATE Carbon front beams and stage 1 of minimal front end experiment standard 6 pack along chassis and all NIB bits removed and some donated to sand rover resto (which was traded a couple of days later LOL), Destined to be a runner for sure. its just done its first carpet crawl and all seems O.K. bit more work to do before backyard bash though.
UPDATE 6/1/04 The forums win again, Dazmeister radio box now used and M sonics waterproof esc. Big thanks to TWINSET for puting along chassis battery strap slots on his chassis and essential parts on this one including narrow front uprights!.
UPDATE 25/1/07 Well I finally got some time on this, 3 years between updates oh well here goes......Got a Fibre Lyte carbon chassis now and boy it looks the biz. Decided to try tamiya tech coil over shocks as the old brass ones were on the way out. I must say they are great! I had probs with double rear coil overs with CRP nylon rear arms. The screws at the bottom of the shocks had to be long so when suspension was compressed the nylon arm twisted and bound up the shocks so any thing over 1/2 travel and they got stuck. Took off the nylon arms and reverted to good old rigid metal stock ones, problem solved :). If anyone os going planning on using Tamiya Tech shocks I recomend the little brass spacers yo get for non adjustable tie rods on TA 0# cassis they fit perfectly into shock ends.
