I've had this since new, i'm thinking of restoring it using some carbon goodies from Fibre-Lyte. I gave them all the original FRP parts, chassis and motor plates. The wheels are in excellent shape but need cleaning, not sure how to clean them, any ideas? I found another TC member had used the gold shocks from Duratrax but they are discontinued, they were nearly an exact copy too! If anyone knows where to get them please get in touch. The front and rear arms are slightly scraped so should clean up with some very fine wet and dry sandpaper. I'll also get myself a repro body and decals and some new tyres. I need a new front bumper too if anyone can help?

Won a few races with this




Its a great Car. I have ine on Ebay selling right now Not to keen to sale as these are such amazing cars to rive. I bought a ZX5 and ran it, never liked it ans sold it. The Turbo Optima Mid is just superb. Hope you do restore it, worth every penny Pal



I really want to add a few things to it but at the same time not take it too far away from what it is, if that makes sense? It would look great with carbon chassis, top deck and uprights and a different colour scheme. I'll keep all the bits i take off too
