Printed parts on right. If I knew this was the route I was going to take I may have wanted the rear hubs to match the truck hub carrier. With the boxy hub it's more of a throwback to the original. I had thought of dying those black as well.
Got the new truck nose plate cut down and got the front end parts assembled. There's gonna be a hold up on getting it to roller status since I want to design a new front tower to accomodate the .71 shocks.
i had this up for sale for awhile but had no takers. So, I figured I'd get with Jeff to help with cutting a new front tower. I was never really happy with the first one. It looked good on paper, but once on the car it just didn't look or function properly. I drew it too short, too narrow, and too bulky. So, we raised the shock mounting holes, stood the sides up a bit and pushed them out. I'm happy with it now. Looks better, suspension works better (travel wise), and I won't have to narrow the body as much to get it through the tower.
I finished 2nd yesterday in the classic class with my Tamiya Manta Ray. Had a great battle for the lead, but caught the pipe with like 40-45 sec left and couldn't catch back up. I'll update that build thread later.
So last week, I made a deal with a fellow racer that was looking to move some re-release items. I didn't think it would be that much, but it turned out to be 1 complete car minus a body and wheels, and maybe 75-80% to build...
Looking forward to seeing another one of your awesome builds Jason! Hope associated does another run of these worlds cars.
Well, he's not little anymore, and he'll be 21 in January. But, here is my kid's worlds car. Just about ready to munch on some carpet this winter. Waiting on the servo yet and I gotta spray the body.
I reckon our generation had it best growing up. Where we actually rang Johhny's house to see if we could come over, or knock on the door to see if Johnny could come out. We had a good care free way of life, cool toys, rode bikes everywhere, played...
