This is my Subaru painted as a road going 22B STi Impreza (My favourite Subaru).



It was bought new from the local Dick Smith electronics shop for the huge sum of $499. Has been well used over the last 10 years, but well looked after and never rolled. The photo on the magazine is when it was first painted and the rest are recent.



It has a MambaMax 5700Kv brushless fitted with a few alloy upgrades and the FRP chassis set. More upgrades to go when funds allow.



I very much like the way the TA03F drives and with a set of drift tyres fitted it's extremely easy to control. It goes like a rocket with the 5700Kv and 7.4v Li-Po. Eats nitros much to the horror of the nitro driver, and runs for longer than their 75cc fuel tank.



Comments always welcome :)



'Killer B' 22B Sti Impreza The body lines are hand painted. It's 10 years old! Hand painted decals for rear plate and 22B badge.

Fast motor, 10 years old but still looks like new. Confused, how do you do that???? And why was it so expensive.

@WW-Nut: Don't crash, don't roll and wash the car down after use with a damp cloth. I've wornout a Mamba motor in this car if that's any indication of the use it gets. Dick Smith is a ripp off and I didn't know any better back then, they ordered in special for me.

Ah yes, not crashing. I wonder what it would look like if I'd driven it for 10 years. Doubt it would still resemble an Impreza.

The wheels are the kit wheels and the colour is STi Yellow which was an optional colour for the real car. It's auto paint, the correct Subaru yellow. Thanks for the nice comments guys
