What a fun chassis! Run by 4 AA batteries, easy to carry it around anywhere I go!

Because the chassis is so small, I had to carefully stack all 3 electorics
(receiver, ESC and light unit for the head lights) plus steering servo too.
Built it stock except full ball bearings, I'm considering un upgrade to a sport-tuned motor.

Yeah mate l never thought that before this is ideal to take on your holidays because no need for lumpy batteries and charger! Just buy some AA batteries when you get to your destination and off you go!!????
I am tempted to pick one up!

Cool kit. Looks like the driver from Wild Willy. There's a guy in my area that has something that looks like a 1:1 version of this. Next time I see him I'll try to get a photo.

Exactly James! You don't need anything else to bring along, just the vehicle and controller, because you can source AA batteries anywhere. I think you will love this James, you should really try it out!

'J@mes' Thank you James, I got a bit lazy on making the body, so I got a precut and prepainted chrome body to start off, but as soon as I finished this kit, I painted the origianal body with gun-metal color and finished it too. And yes, LED lights are must, as they level up the realism of this motorbike!

'GoFast80' Yes this driver head is used in many different TAMIYA kits, except the Wild Willy version has the full body figure. 1:1 reference photo will be great! Thank you mate!

Looks great. I think the small size of these makes them very collectable
