I've had this vision as soon as I saw the Micro-T in person, and I had to give it a go today. I am still waiting for delivery on my Micro T (should be here any day now ;) ) but a friend at work already has one buzzing around so I took it and matched it to a Monster Beetle Jr. 1/32 body. The fit is almost perfect! I didn't hesitate a second to start cutting the body up for a proper racer look. This is what I got so far- and it's looking great! The body is going pretty quickly, I plan on doing a retro racer scheme on it- and by the time it's done, my Micro T should be here. I'm planning on mounting it with velcro strips on the sides as it fits very well to the chassis and those microscopic body pins are a bit difficult. For you guys who haven't witnessed a Micro-T yet, you are missing out! These things are quick and even with this body (slightly heavier than the stock one) it will still pull wheelies and handles very well. I can't wait to get this done and it will be a perfect office racer and even a travel basher...maybe it will go to Japan with me next week if I can get it done! 8D
*UPDATE* paintwork has started and it's really taking shape! I'll have to work on it some more after I return from my trip, then it's ready for the beach...parking lot! ;) By the way, packaged Hot Wheels make perfect launch ramps for these guys!
