Made a runner with homemade carbonroof and chassisdeck. Installed a Nosram 5.5 and will run it with 4 cells since 6 will be too much. DT02 springs were used (in front is a bit too soft) and the brillant blue suites the racy-look. The wheels are from a Dark impact... This one will be run on the beach (maybe I'll try the 6cells LOL)

@Monster beetle: you can bend carbon fibre with heat.

normally you cannot bend carbon if it was cast. This one is pre-preg carbon in one layer, not so touch but looks good. It was bent with a heatgun and put between 2 alu plates. For more info mail me

Very nice, the white lettering on the black wheels really sets it off.

looks excellent. I was wandering if Tamiya made any solid black dish wheels, that would totally be TRF since the Durga rims won't fit.

Very nice, that color combo is working very well. It would appear this OLD Clunker could kill modern day buggies.

Looks cool! What city do you usually run your cars at? I loved my gravelhound on the beach (Nieuwpoort) - very fast

Have to agree with miga, that colour combination is tough. Looks like you're ready for a Peak Racing LIPO there.

Looks wicked. I like the modern touches on a classic chassis. Even just sitting there is looks fast,
