My new addition - Marui Samurai

Post by Mad Racer »

Got this from my Neighbor 2 doors.

Has been put togeather wrong. Chain is upside down. The steering links go over the chain not through it. Chain rubs on the steering links. Torsion bars aren't hooked up. Have got all the shocks and the Golds on it.

Will go well with my Galaxy. All up $80... It's nice to get a bargain, Doesn't happen often LOL....

Let's see some pics, Mark! Heck, even strip-down pics can be...fun. Show us your stripper. :)

P.S. Now that you own one, you can't keep calling it "Mauri Samuria", it's a Marui Samurai. :P

Thanks Marc & Gary,

It's all in a big ice cream container. LOL.

Will take some pics on the weekend.

Yes Gaz hope to have it ready for Castle hill. Not counting on it. If it is ready i will withdraw my Thunder Shot from stock and race the Samurai .

Couldn't resit the Pargu 2000 wheels though.

Im in the middle of a tear down and rebuild of my Lazer ZX as well with some new goodies on that.
