Been toying with this for a while!
All started with a forum discussion about modified touring cars being used as 'works buggies', so decided to have a go.
Cheers muchly to MUD4FUN for the driveshafts that started it all off!
Designed the swingarms just before chrimbo, then had to wait for the machine shop to slot them in.
Steering rods etc. were turned by another chap, and it all came back from the anodizers today.
Not really 100% sure about the wheel/tyre combination yet, they make the car look too 'short' if you know what I mean, so may go with 1.9 touring car rims, with tires off the pre-runner (bought a few sets just in case).
Shocks are standard TB-01, but had to turn the shock mounts upside-down to get the right height. Also used spare mounts from the pre-runner to get a couple of extra mm!
Gearing is 16/55 (pinion/spur) with a 23t motor - haven't tested it yet, so not sure how long any of it will last ;)
