Here is a car I build completely based on the color scheme of a body I already had. I think it turned out pretty cool.

My Kyosho Optima Mid, it has some hop ups like Kyosho Platinum shocks, universals front and rear, front ball diff, composite shock towers and roll bars front and rear.

It's a runner with a Novak GT7 speedo and a Kyosho LeMans 240S motor.

Ok this is my current ride. Something a bit different.

This car started it’s life as a B6.1, but was later converted to a front wheel drive car using a ORB FWD conversion kit designed by Paul Dijkstra. It uses an alu chassis, 3d printed parts and some custom carbon parts for a pretty comprehensive redesign.

Not really into Truggys sorry , so it really narrowed the field for me .
If a jobs not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well.
