Wanted to make this a buggy, but the body doesn't exist so, for the time being, I slung a truck body on it.

Got it running now, 17t motor - goes quite well

Has a one way up front and a real cool looking ball diff out back, shame the gearboxes aren't transparent, it really does look nice!

Have looked into prices for the arm sets, but they'll be around £60, not including driveshafts, wheels or tires - so destined to stay a one-off, apart from..... ;)

UPDATE;

Now fitted with an Mtroniks RV11 ESC

You should get a Renault Megan Schlesser buggyt body for it, then you'd have Tamiya's missing kit!

That'll be the truck we were talking about then , you should really lower the suspension and put some HPI Super Nitro 5 spokes on it with buggy tires. Well done anyway mate, will you be making parts available? You know you will get a lot of requests for 'em

Yeah, yeah, yeah,
Otions aren't finished on the tires/wheels yet, but these are the best so far - will look into HPI's though.
Have enquired about cost of parts, will update forum post as soon as I know.

Very sexy looking truck, leave the shell as is! Hope you sorted out the lack of oomf?
