Hi everyone!



For my first showroom entry, I decided to show you the first ever 'serious' RC car I owned (and the only one at the time). By serious, I mean not a toy.


I got lucky and found a store in Paris where the guy had kept quite a few Boomerang kits, amongst other things. I bought them all, and sold them (some to you here at TC), but I kept one for myself.


This the one I'm presenting here. I've changed a few things:


-wheels dyed black


-white tires fitted


-dual front shock system (dampers come from a Gravel hound)


I had to cut some parts on the suspension arms and front hubs in order to fit the wide wheels, but I'm actually quite pleased with the result.


I still need to paint the driver.


Enjoy!

edit: driver painted!

I like this alot. The black shocks really go good with the wheels are tires. Very creative

Sweet. I usually don't like funny colored tires but on here it looks good. Also like the black lettering.

That's the best looking Boomerang I've ever seen. Makes me want to buy one for myself.

You must be the same age as me, I had a Boomerang when I was a kid (11) too and my father wanted me to buy a Rocky. I got the Boomerang and loved it!

This is by far the coolest looking Boomerang I've seen and I think it's because I'm liking the white tires! Very cool look.
