Everyone, at first, I want to say thank you.
thank you for favorable comments for my works always.
Your comments always encourage me.
And I have to apologize you.
I am often busy and cannot answer.
But always I am reading all your comments with joy.
Really thank you very much.

it was one of my dream but this car was too expensive as you know.
So, I gave up my dream.
Suddenly, Tamiya gave me this gift.

I did not want to change the outline of its unique styling as much as possible in respect for this great historic model.
so, I had to choose more hard way for its modification.
It was really hard to make, but finally my dream came true.
It has 4 inboard shocks and many modern features, please watch and enjoy.

Thank you for reading.

You are definitely one of the top Tamiya RC car fabricators/designers/artists on planet earth. Period. Well done, amazing attention to detail and function, also big points for aesthetic beauty.

another fine car from the grahoo workshop top work as allways. You inspire many people to look outside the confines of just the 'kit' . i'd be intrested to see canterlevers and how/what thay were made from/used, and how thay are mounted as it's something i've been looking into for a on-going project.

Suspect my browser dropped my comment as I should have been first in last night, but with that aside, let me re state from memory. 'Extremely HOT' is the understatement of the century. This beast looks like it would whip any and all contendors from today as well as back when the original was released. I do hope to put my name on the Hop Up list to be produced and sold by Grahoo in the NEAR??? Future(please). I especially like the quick change battery latch. You are a genuine master of this art of RC modification. Thank you very much for sharing with us humble folks that would dream of that much talent.

Masterfully engineered! We could all dream that your hop-up designs could be sold as small kits to fans like us. I know that I would be first in line

Two words - Bad Ass !... I love how the rear is setup with the inboard shocks - Simply magnificent !...

Fantastic as always! I love to see your modified cars, they┬┤re extreeemly cool and show what is possible to modify when you put your mind on it (and you got the talent).
Mods are one thing, this is the art on engineering!!

Very very cool project. I love what you do to make a classic even better.

Awesome as always! It looks like a real buggy, and yet you incorporated such modern features as adjustable upper links and quick swap battery holders. Truly amazing!

This Hotshot is absolutely INCREDIBLE! You'd never know this was an '80s design; it makes the DI look like its from 1985! Wow!

Looks really good, even without the body! Nice carbon parts and those dual shocks at the back are awesome! I noticed you have a Dark Impact and a Keen Hawk with an outstanding paintscheme.. When will the Durga arrive
