This one has been a long time coming - about two months. Built this Fox from all new parts (minus the box). As with my other cars, this one was built to match the box art with a couple of changes (driver and period hop-ups). I finished the body with the original Tamiya polycarbonate paints and made the following changes:
Added Parma Front Anti-Rollbar (lower profile design), Street Tires (from TC member Pugjo1), Warp Gold Anodized Nerf Bars, 3Racing Gold Anodized Heat Sink, Team CRP Aluminum Shock Mount, Parma Front Stabilizer and Tamiya Gold Anodized Wheel Nuts.
I also had a Parma Rear Anti-Rollbar kit and a Parma Front Camber Adjustment Kit (from TC member Tamiya King). I choose not to install them because the Rear Anti-Rollbar Kit requires you to cut a section away from the rear of the body (this body is too rare to cut up the back) and the Front Camber Adjustment Kit takes away from the look of the car (original Tamiya arms are much better).
For the Driver, I decided to borrow the Tamiya logo decal included on the Fox Decal sheet and divide the red and blue stars into two seperate decals. I added them to the helmet along with silver race striping for a unique racing look.
All in all I am very happy with this build. Let me know what you think.
P.S. TC Member Ant88 fabricated a new front stabilizer out of aluminum (as well as polycarbonate). I'll be taking some new photos soon to show his handywork.
