Cheetah Telesis

Post by bscotti »

I kinda realized that after so many years of being a member that I have never posted a build thread. Sure I've shown completed stuff but never a series of build pics. Well no time like the present!

ahhhh the sweet smell of completion!

I used TRC Radials on all 4 corners, Tekin electronics, GRP matched cells and a CAM mod motor. Topped it all off with a S&K Airs body. I don't think I'll paint it ... the chassis it just too cool to hide!

already has that, Jason.

Are there any other major Cheetah pieces I'm missing that I haven't seen before?

oh, I didn't know there was another version. The one you showed might be more period correct but only by a couple years.

Gee, thanks another impossible part to find.

Yeah the pod that is on the car Brian is the pod that came first and sold by itself. Then the telesis came out with the pro flex t-bar and graphite upper and lower plate. I also did a second telesis buil I haven't posted and I do have an extra rear pod if your interested :wink:
