Raider/Rocky/Turbo Rocky: will it blend?

Post by GoMachV »

Of course it will! Thanks Bo for the chassis and pieces, blended with a Turbo Raider (shocks and small parts) and a dead Rocky I got at a garage sale. Not looking too bad IMO, I've always been a Rocky fan and remember all too well the unique sound they make. Can't wait to run it! Oh and a Team Bluegroove body on the way soon

That is a good looking buggy. I've been trying to find rocky shock towers but they have been hard to find lately.

I have a set of green era correct wheels coming so I'm thinking an 80's fluorescent green with some white and black trim?

I would say it looks more like a racer with toes yellow wheels as it would do with green...

My most recent project has been an original Rocky and it was quite the restore. I had never really looked at these other than the famed Kyosho action shots back in the day. There's something I like about the old Rocky and yours looks ace.
I always did wonder if the Raider was a 2WD version of this car....
The Lazer rims look good with all the alloy and Option House dampers. Nice work.

Well the Paypal man will be visiting you then :lol: cause that is how I operate! You treated me very well on the parts- the wheels and tires are worth what I already paid you by themselves. Just having fun with ya 8)

Original tires and wheels will be awesome- I love the race look of the lazer wheels but they are too new. This may change my green scheme idea.....now what!
