I originally bought this in a second hand shop in the late 1980's... it was just the bare chassis, covered with thick black paint and the gearbox. And I had no idea what it was, not even that it was a Tamiya of some kind.
But I loved the quirky suspension design so wanted to try and rebuild it. And I did eventually- it just took me about thirty years to get around to it :/
I've made a few updates, mostly around the front suspension- I wanted to add dampers, so added them with a cantilever design using pullrods- trying to mimic the look of the rear suspension. I did it mostly just for the fun of making it different, but I'm quite happy with how it handles too. Also added a few bits to get rid of the bump steer and all the slop in the front joints.
