Thanks guys, however i cannot take credit for this car. I bought it as is from a very skilled builder. The only thing i did was...
1. Clean it up
2. Fit the fuel tank and electronics
3. Final assembly of body/pipe/engine head
4. The exhaust pipes where white but got scuffed up in transit so i stripped the paint then polished the brass
Its now on my desk so whenever i work on any project its right there with me...lol

That's a nice looking Dash, I have one but the body is not that clean. I also recently acquired the F1 dash body. Awesome case too.

I picked this up on eBay recently. It's a Jim Kirby Eagle 1/8 scale body in original box. I paid $34 free shipping. Earlier in the day this same seller sold a Dynamic Suspension Car in it's original box for $50 plus shipping. The care was brand new in damaged packaging it was missing two tire and rims, otherwise new and sealed. I saw the ad after it had already ended and was so bummed out, so I checked the sellers other items and this had just been listed so I bought it on a hunch for $34 free shipping.
