Update again, wasn't getting the use it deserved, so sold on ebay
Update since originally posting. Ordered and fitted repro rubber switch cover and fitted an ESC with an on/off switch. Also found/made some steering rods so was able to blast it up and down the street - HUGE smile on my face :) Not to be run again until body is done, maybe get a spare set of on-road wheels? AND, thanks again to Bigwheels_inc who got me a pleiku68 rear underguard - a repro of the RCH hopup
I couldn't resist posting this, it's not quite finished yet but it's getting there. I've been building a Scorcher from odds and ends, picked up via trades on here and ebay. Enjoyed every minute of it. You should notice some Tamiyaclub members custom/repro parts!
Rad22rad wheel covers
Kamtec radio box
Cul-tech front body post (thanks bigwheels_inc!)
pleiku68 rear underguard (thanks again bigwheels_inc!!)
There's a whole bunch of members who've helpded me source parts, donated stuff, traded with and given me great advice/inspiration:
Bigwheels_inc, L-U-K-E, Toykid, MikeT, Biggus, addicted2blue, Tamiya_runner, firstsecondthirdgearwheelieonewheelsenough, Vintageavante and probably some more that I've forgotten to make a note off - sorry if that's you :( UPDATE - toykid - whose paint scheme I'm probably going to pinch!
Need to finish off my body, find some alternative decals, get a rear body mount (they are very expensive at the moment) and probably do a few more things then this will be a runner. Ooh, will probably swap the ESC for one with a on/off switch, easier to use plus I can get a cool rubber switch cover ,)
Any comments welcomed.
Dodgy home made stinger clips!
