This is the first (unique?) 1/10th Dakar 959 number 185 as driven by Jacky Ickx and Claude Brassuer to second place in the 1986 Paris Dakar.
Its running on a DF02 chassis with Schulze uforce esc and Twist 37 brushless and 6900mah LiPo power. I have finally done the headlights tooling, including headlight glass pattern and reflector cone using chromium transfer. I hope they look ok. Any comments welcomed. Please see my trades page for more details.


In action!

The headlights have made it! It was the only thing I didn't like before. Well done!!

Hi, I saw your great video. Good music, and adds mystic to the footage. Wonderful. Exactly where can I find this 1/10 scale body/kit? Its sleeker than the 1/12 scale I have.

If I remember correctly, Jacky Ickx only lost after flipping a coin by the team management to decide who would be the winner. A real shame! But I do love your body. Now thinking if I will buy one or two!

The body and lights look absolutely great. Hide the antenna and body mounts and pic #1 would look completely real.
