*** Entering this for the competition, i guess this is my vision of how the Scorcher may have looked if tamiya had released a race version. Uprated front suspension using long travel ally shocks, softer rear suspension, sport tuned motor, Brass gears throughout the gearbox and ballraced. The body style is modelled after the real racers with cut-away arches, roll cage, window netting and ally wheels. running boards removed and also the window rubbers for the more stripped-out look. ***

Last comment on this model was over 2 years ago. Funny how this model started everyone going crazy with the modified scorchers. I know it was the inspiration for mine. Great work Volksrod, this one is a classic.
