A few years ago I started building the what I considered to be the ultimate 'HOT TRICK' hopped up Optima. Using components from Hot Trick, Parma, Kyosho, CRP,RSS and T2M among others. I wanted the basis to be on the Hot Trick chassis, using as many other hop up parts that were compatible with this system along the way.
This baby has some pretty tricky mods up its sleeve: One way front end, Belt drive conversion, limited slip rear diff, trailing arm rear suspension, captive ball joints, alloy wheels, full Hot Trick chassis, CRP Tyres and RSS alloy wheels.....just to name a few.
I dreamt about owning something like this when I was racing all those years ago - however Hot Trick product was not overly popular here in Australia (I LOVED IT!!) and was prohibitavely expensive. Not much has changed on the cost front - however with the number of people unearthing old school hop ups around the world they seem more plentiful now than they were back then. (More that the world is becoming a global village I suppose). This baby has taken me about 4 years to get it to where it is today, finding all the parts from the four corners of the globe - now all I have to do is decide on a body for it.
These pics are 'teasers' as I just finished writing the article for R/C Car mag on this baby - so more detailed pics will be in the magazine for now.
Hope you enjoy!
