Bought this on ebay, always wanted one! Had to settle for a Madcap back in 89, could only just afford one of those!!. Car looked as though it had been sat in storage for a very long time. Once stripped and cleaned I then realised what excellent condition it was actually in. I replaced it's gearbox with that from my Madcap Evo (fully rebuilt using bearings and new ball diff). The old gearbox looks ok so will strip & rebuild as a spare. Shocks were stripped and oil replaced, just ordered a new body set so I can paint as box art as old body had a few minor cracks. So far this car has had:
€¢ New body set;
€¢ 27T Dirt Tuned motor;
€¢ Replaced MSC with ESC;
New bodyset added. Old body will be used for any future running. Took it out for a run last night, it is the KING of under steer, which comes as no surprise due to the lightness of the front end. Front suspension does not flex well, think I need to re-grease some of the joints.
Have all original parts that I replaced, 540 motor MSC etc, so in future can be sold as original, but for now it's become a Shelf Queen.
