1/8 scale 6s lipo electric buggy.
After buying a brand new Vorza flux HP when HPI rere their buggy they discontinued it, relaunching it with new tweaks etc.
I wanted a runner and nearly bought another NIB but then I saw this used runner for half the price of a nib plus many new parts to rebuild it with....
Installed EC5 single battery connector

New chassis
New (ish) wheels and tyres (slightly used)
New battery department
New shock cover top protectors
Drive shafts.
Alloy rear hubs (installed)
Alloy front hubs (installed)
Uprated 20t pinion and spur (installed)

I have also found a new screw set, ball bearing set and oils for the diffs and shocks,.approx    £80 spent

After running it for nearly a year I've decided to rebuild it over the winter and finally now got around to uploading.

UPDATE 23/11/2023
Started strip down, some bent screws, rusty bearings and dirty parts....

UPDATE 08/12/2023
Strip down nearly complete, new pic shows centre diff case, it's composite stock, I think it's partially melted, it works but the gears don't come out, will look at the alloy upgrade like most modern models.
I had to Dremel the melted diff case to get the gears out!

Last owner taped over chassis Dremelled diff case Rusty bearing
