Here's the description of yesterdays 'quartermile' Street Scorcher entry (the whole car can be seen, when you follow the link below...)
How to fix a Scorcher body on a TA03 RS chassis:
You need chassis modification to get a Scorcher body on a TA03RS chassis.
Pic3: shows all modifications:
replace the bumper and cut the part as shown, so that the bodies nose will fit.
If you are using a Blitzer Beetle nose - this part can be missed out (pic 4)
2. front Body post
Body posts for the front: drill the chassis in middle and use some body post from a TB02 or other chassis.
be sure to center it - before drilling.
3. cut the chassis a little, so that the SS body will fit under the chassis
4. rear Body post:
this part can be missed when not using the original SS body posts.
Drill the chassis as shown in pic 6 & 7. There are also a little posts there, which must be cut away.
Screw the bodies cage guard on the chassis and get some cable fixer to get it in the right position
if necessary get somecord to fix it from the other side (pic eight)
5. rear suspension:
revell or cut the rear suspension to enlarge the wheelbase for about 3mm to get a better visual effect, because the rear tires will not fit exactly under the rear mudguards.
6. rear cage:
drill the rear cage with a 2mm driller an fix it on the chassis.
use a little steel tube to make sure that the cage is not bent forward.
