Cool! This was my first 2wd competition buggy.
I never got used to the front suspension. To me, it seemed like it made the rear end very loose.
Never really got it dialled in.

Are You going to run it?

Not planning to run it - there's just something about shiney black Schumacher tyres and pristine 1980's wheels.....just can't bear to risk damaging them!

Don't you just love fresh new Schumacher parts! Great inspiration for me to continue with the build of my TopCat, which seems to have ground to grinding halt!

I'm very jealous of your original bodyshell/wing/driver moulding - I have a new shell from TBG but its nothing like having the original parts! How are you intending to finish it off?

Yup - that was how they came as standard - the only bearings that were supplied in the kit were for the front wheels oddly enough? :?

This has since been sold on ebay - demand seems high, judging by the price it reached!
