Vintage AE Team / Worlds build thread

Post by jcwrks »

I acquired a new build buggy from mikea96 several years ago. I was very pleased with his vision, but the purist in me decided to strip it down and make it an AE parts car only. The pic below shows some of the original parts that were sourced. Neon yellow chassis is an original B stamp. Other parts were scr8p's Flashback RC towers and braces, Conklin aluminum outdrives, Hydra-drive, MIP shock bodies, and Lunsford Ti turnbuckles.

Since I already have a few all white nylon builds I figured a zebra would mix things up a bit. I opted for 6037 World's towers, battery, and trans brace. The turnbuckles are the late B2 style, so I'll use them along with white ball cups. Shocks are from a 6037 Worlds kit. Nose tubes were black, so I sanded them down with 600 grit along with the wing tubes. Caster blocks are 25 degree. I didn't really take any pics of it disassembled or the years that it sat in limbo.

Wheels, tires, body, and electronics are already set aside. I'll post some updates once more progress has been made.

I think we’ve recently spoken about this build🤔 it’s about time this thing gets some love. Nice to see a nice clean build using AE parts sprinkled with some hop up. Excited to see it come together
