Is this the prettiest buggy Traxxas has ever released?

I think so, I've wanted one for many years and now I have one. Unfortunately this one has had much of the white plastics dyed black but at least it was done well. I made a fake battery so it can always have one sitting in place for display duties, I also had to make a new chassis top plate as the original one had been butchered. And of course a new reproduction shell and decals.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

It's so beautiful. I like the mix of aluminum and FRP for the chassis. The layout and design of the kit is simply beautiful!

That is beautiful! very refined look to it. Are those wheel nuts standard, and are they metric or imperial?

Thanks guys. Hi SlideWRX, I think they are called knockoffs, they came with the buggies new and they are metric.

Just completed my resto of a Bullet (see TC Home Page) so know what you have gone through. You've done an assume paintjob. I wasn't brave enough to go white, but it looks great.
