Oh, really?!? :mrgreen:

For now (and for the past years) It's just a body on an original worlds car with a nicely cut chassis by a top-notch guy from bitd. I wish all the trick stuff that this body refers to was there, but I never followed-up on that project, you can see the basis here:

but if you can find me the stickers, I might give it a go again ;)

And back on topic, a few pics of the soon-to-be completed car.

For now I have some already bored out Losi XXX rims in the acetone bath, but these seem to fit perfectly - unfortunately I am experiencing the "NIB" syndrom and I'm struggling to tear the bag opened as these are long disc'ed and the only ones I can find in the US would set me back $35-ish per pair ($5 for the wheels, $30 for shipping :roll: )

The car looks like this now:

I have tried to tidy up the wires as they are all over the place, and there's the extra KO servo fet wire that doesn't really help either. Shrink wrap to the rescue!

Premium antenna mount - this is a cut servo mount from a late TLT-1... found it as scrap on the garage floor, the other half was used as a battery stop on my Xray T4 '17... a bit of body reaming, a drop of CA to make sure the antenna tube doesn't go away, and voila, (free) race material :mrgreen:

Now I'm just waiting on AE bleeder caps and making up my mind about wheels/tires :roll:
