I wanted to build one of these shortly before the re-release was announced. Once I knew the re-re was coming, I started my quest for custom parts.
One of the first custom parts I got was a You-G wing from TC Member 'Crunchydog'. That gave me the idea to do something a little different by painting it to match the body and blend the original wing and the custom wing together as one. The result was excellent!
Sadly, my cat (Patches) tripped me up when I walked back in the house after the photo shoot and the Hotshot took a spill and landed (you guessed it) directly on the wing. It bent badly to one side, but luckily it hit carpet. I'm not sure if I can bend it completely straight again and I'm likely going to have to strip it back down and repeat the painting / decal process once again. If anyone has a spare You-G wing for sale, please let me know. I would be forever grateful
Other custom parts to this build include: Dirt Burners Nerf Bars, Team CRP Front Stabilizer, AYK Aluminum Gold Wheels, Tamiya Gold Wheel Nuts and a You-G Front Bumper.
I also had some fun customizing the driver helmet as well, using a yellow and silver theme which blended nicey.
One more project down and my first (and hopefully last) incident after a build. Thanks always to all the TC members who have helped me source parts along the way and thanks to Crash Cramer for giving me the 'Hotshot bug' for which this project may have never been possible.
