Hi fellas, a couple years ago I decided to build a Sand Scorcher hybrid- thingie, but don't remember if I posted these pics after the big TC server crash. Well for those that never got to see the development of this here ya go- A Sand Scorcher that handles a bit better than the real thing and is lighter.(Please dont hate me for saying that) Used a beat up RC10 chassis from Ebay that was all scratched up as the foundation. I am a Tamiya fan a little more than an AE fan but always liked Associated for reliability and suspension. Of course, the wheelbase was much too long for the Parma/Tamiya beetle body so I chopped the chassis and slid the nose back into it. After sanding and priming all the big scratches were down to a minimum I painted it with Epoxy spray paint for durability (low-buck project I am was too cheap to get this thing powder coated).. The steering layout was fun to experiment with and I am happy to report over the last couple years this car has proven to be really fun, durable and maintenance free! The extra bonus for me was so many people emailed me to tell me they were building one too! Some of those emails came from another site, RC10talk.com.............scollins
