Bolink eliminator 12 fiberglass build

Post by joe sumasky »

Noticed not to many bolinks on here lol on the rc10talk. Thought I would share one I recently built from a new kit. Tried to use period correct for most.

Great looking car!!

There are a few Bolinks around here, but not too many (electric motor powered ones :mrgreen: ) have been discussed recently. I have done a Round Tracker and Eliminator 10, and have a 1/12 Bandito in the queue. I missed out on an Eliminator 12 auction a couple of years back, and I have been a little pissed about it since. Definitely on a my radar to get one in the future.
I build RCs like people would have done back in the '90s ..................................... if they had 3D printers.

The SCR cells are nice! A little extra voltage comes in handy.

Who do you race for ?
Me……. I race for me.
That’s impossible, I was told you need a sponsor to race.

I wish those decals were still available, I'm not very creative so I'd copy yours :lol:
