The recipe I follow is the original and would need hand delivery as it may not go through customs .

I've got a couple of DS based projects in the background. These run videos inspire me to try and beat your aggressive build time from the Mustang. 😁
Hey, maybe we can both finish our next DS projects, although i must say rushing it like i did with the mustang might cause us to cut corners...i say let's take our time, smell the roses and WD 40 while we enjoy the build :lol:

Also...you mentioned cheating with your TC3...lol I think i can match your TC3 with my NTC3...to even out the playing field.

We both will have similar cars and can see who power drift crashes the best! :mrgreen: I must say im pretty good :lol:

That DS Mustang crash you recorded was worthy of NASCAR highlight film. Oof! 😁

Looks like the voting ended and TDO's Optima Pro eeked out the win! Congrats! A really nice example of a rare buggy. I didn't personally vote for it but with only one vote I can't pick every build that I want to vote for. Certainly a deserving win!

Now it just needs a few upgrades (only a few, it's easy to stop at only a few...). Just the basics: Golds shocks, and belt drive conversion, and front one way drive, and adjustable turnbuckles, and universal swingshafts, and Thorp hardened final pinion, and Litesink motor plate, and....

CONGRATS to TheDiamondOne for a mint looking and beautifully done buggy.

It was an exciting comp...but i think if we went to the parking lot...My #78 would take the win in a crash contest!
