Having disappointedly missed the last run of these, I couldn't resist once I'd spotted them come up again on Tamico's website.

And I'm so glad I did. Such a gorgeous looking car IMHO. I haven't done to much to the stock M06 chassis as I wasn't sure how it would compare to an M08 I have. I got some Super Mini CVA's at the same time as ordering the kit, didn't need Bearings as I had enough already. As it's a new run it came with a TBLE 04s ESC so it was also nice to see how they work to powering a Torque Tuned Motor for now. I actually really enjoyed driving it for it's maiden run and earning it's racing stripes by competing in some 'Postal Racing' over on the Forum. I have since ordered a Yeah Racing Aluminium Steering upgrade.

I wanted to show the body off as best I could, so I delved into trying a custom paint job starting off with a few coats of PS37 Transparent Red followed by PS61 Metallic Orange to keep to a classic vibe. As a nod to its Italian heritage I gave it some Italian Flag themed Racing Stripes with some Gun Metal Pin Stripes to help break up the Pearl White side panels a little. Then all backed with Silver.

I'm super happy with the result, even Mrs ReBugged remarked on how much she liked it. This one can proudly sit in view in the Lounge I think.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks Fella's, I might look into an interior of some sort if I get a chance MAD-BEE, that PS Smoke can be treacherous stuff sometimes.
