Went ahead and ordered the FZ02S chassis and short aluminum drive shaft for the Kyosho Fazer MK2. There are very few 200mm width bodies with longer than a 10 1/2" wheelbase, though a majority of the Kyosho bodies are for the FZ02L.

The Team Associated Apex2, the non Sport version, comes with the Hoonitruck body, and comes with bearings and stiffer drive train and axles, much better than the Sport version apparently. Used for $200 + $20 shipping, looking to pick one of those up before they disappear.

Got some wheel options for the FZ02. HPI black, HPI matte chrome, and the included 5-slot chrome wheels.

That's Alclad II in the spray can, thinking about making those black rims, chrome.

The little disc brake rotors which are non-functional, except to adapt the wheels from 190mm to 200mm.
Image

Stock Kyosho wheels without the knock offs, if I run them like this, I'll replace the black screws that hold the wheel on in the center, with stainless or chrome, these really look like Chevy rally wheels without the knock offs on them.
Image

Black HPI wheels, 26mm front, 31mm rear, may try the chrome spray on these.
Image

Matte chrome HPI, 26mm front, 31mm rear.
Image

The Tx on this Kyosho kit is really good, can't get over how nice it is, not even for just the price, it's perfect to be able to turn down the max. throttle so it goes pretty slow, and hand it to someone who's new or not experienced for them to enjoy too.
Image

Got the short drive shaft yesterday, the FZ02S short chassis will be here tomorrow, then I can fit the '67 vette body finally. Be back tomorrow with the results.

I could not agree more.
Kyosho's electrics in general, and their Tx's in particular, are the best of any RTR I own. A+

FZ02S chassis and FZ02 aluminum shaft.

Fairly easy to disassemble and replace parts.

Body fits now.

Will mount all the electronics, then figure out what wheels to go with.

Car is lookin' good. Especially from that low 3/4 view. ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Hard choice on the wheels... I dig the Torq Thrusts with the darker blue. Lets the Rallys go on your tribute car to match the original.

Looking at the screwhead on the Rallys, wondering if the wheels were painted black and chrome screw caps were popped on if it wouldn't look like a steel wheel with poverty caps... not for this car, obviously... but could look cool if someone were building a super stock drag car... Thinking out loud again, don't mind me. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Thanks! Was thinking the same about saving the stock wheels for the tribute.

The screws are M4x22mm that hold the wheels on, need to get stainless or chrome for these with no knockoffs.
Image

The Kyosho FZ02L Mercedes 300sel has these same wheels, but with the chrome/silver screws, the screws can look like caps:
Image


Here's all the FZ02L stuff that's not used for the FZ02S short chassis, quite a bit.
Image

Wires and routing setup.
Image

The HPI black wheels.
Image

HPI matte chrome, definitely my favorite for this body.

Ordered the silver M4 wheel screws today. With the 200mm wide body disc adapters, the correct wheel screws are M4 x 16mm, with the 190mm discs the screws are M4 X 22mm.

Also have a magnetic body post kit coming, these magnets are a bit weak but might be ok for on-road, wouldn't work for off-road.

Got the M4 stainless screw kit today.
Image

Silver screws are better for these wheels.
Image

Image

Closer to the Rally wheels I was looking for.
Image

Got the magnetic body post kit today, one of the body side magnets broke so they're sending another set.
Image

By removing the collar on the rear post set, and using the shorter rear posts in the front:
Image

Everything is low enough to look correct.
Image

Image

Will figure out a way to hide/disguise the magnets in the rear window.
Image

The body can still go lower in the front, but the rear is as low as it can go.
Image

When the replacement post kit gets here, I'll set the body/ride height, and go drive this.

Was able to get one of the Team Associated Apex2 Hoonitrucks, with the shorty battery and charger for $230 barely used, from the Team Associated Clearance sale on eBay. With the battery and charger these are regularly $400.
https://www.ebay.com/itm/364757333830

The Hoonitruck Apex2 non-sport has full bearings and full metal drive train, except for plastic center drive cups, whereas the Sport model has bushings and plastic.

Going to put the hoonitruck body away NOS, and use the wheels and vette body from above on this chassis instead.
Image

The Kyosho chassis and rally wheels will be for the tribute vette that's coming up next. This TA Apex2 is going to get driven most often.
