This car has now been completely de-super champed & is now srb chassis with hopups. Thanks to one of TCs finest Volksrod it now has a flat 4 vw kublerwagen engine!!! which has been made in such a way it will just slot onto a scorcher or rough rider too :-) still work in progress & cannons are currently blu tacked, Body cuts need cleaning up and all nylon parts including large gear will be dyed black.
So what dya think?
Thanks for nice words all! & I'm working on it Peter , but thought I better to go for single. Fuel economy is vastly improved.

That is the worst looking sand rover I have ever seen. For punishment of your heinous crime, you need to send it to me right away.

Ah yes tyres. I'd just re set the body on the new chasis, so I do it with origional wheels to get setup as close to origional as poss. May use these ones for drifting LOL.

That is fantastic. Taken at the right angle and in the right enviroment that could look almost real. The engine detail is superb.

Thanks Bratt Attacks, I ran it with engine in last summer but Sadly the cannons are really heavy (solid stainless steel) and my attachment method was'nt up to it so they're for the shelf only.
