I love the attention to detail, I’m in the process of building as close a replica as I can to Masami’s’89 Worlds car, right down to the correct looking chassis material etc. I hope you can post some photos of this finished project.

Wow cant believe how long this has been :| but small update have cut the battery plates and the 10L body posts for the battery postie thingies. Ignore the shocks they are just temporary .
Also made another rear tower as the camber link was abit off.
Cut a body so i think the forecast is for rain this w/end so that will work :D

That's a great looking build, what you really need is to build two so you can run one and keep on pristine :D Gonna be hard to resist the temptation to drive it..

When i finished the 89 rc10 that i put pictures of in the gallery i wished i was back there on a slippery track drifting around on those hard tyres like we used to. Being 17 again would be okay too :D heres a pic of said car

Awesome build! Cliff is fairly active on Facebook and I'm sure would give feedback on your replica.

Awesome build! Quick question on the rear arms as far as how much longer they are compared to stock rear arms?

Just did some quick measuring looks like the stock ones are 63.5mm centre to centre and the ones i made are 74mm this was all just guess work but they seem to be about right.

Hey also did you cut those arms by hand or are they machined?
