Well, its finally finished (10 or so years to this point). I managed to get that elusive lexan from a mysterious benefactor. After that it was a little scary how everything came together. I had all the bits hidden away in forgotten places. I even had most of a sticker set that someone had thrown in as a bonus to a deal before they were worth anything.
I'm going to christen it at the Sydney vintage meet this weekend. I'm really hoping it doesn't get mangled.
So far the hop-ups include bearings, ReRe Frog UJs, CRP front rims and Dynamite rears shod with period brand new Yokomo Hot laps. Its only running a stock Tamiya ESC, but I considering the life expectancy of the gearbox, it'll be more than ample to handle the motors I intend to use with it.
