Actually it seems to be one of the last six-gear championship editions. Note the black shock caps, six-hole front tower, TQ22/TQ72 tires... Possibly factory drilled for Stealth "B" chassis.

Nice piece of the champy line, welcome aboard!

Thankyou Erik! Im looking forward to the big day but also looking forward to when it is all done and said. It can be a little stressful planning a wedding at times....and then there's the cost to go with it! Sheesh!! :shock:

I guess getting married brings legitimacy to our hobby. Being single trying to explain this stuff to girls over a drink in a bar just doesn't work (not that Ive tried). But being in a legitimate relationship allows room for the excuse of how much our kids will love this stuff-ha ha ha :lol: :lol: :lol:

Give it time, after 7 years of marriage and 12 being together, I think my wife has finally realized questioning, arguing over, getting mad, etc. about the obessesion doesn't do any good......... which is good for me, now.
I am not here cause I am playing photographer and on my mountain bike.

Looking good.

The link in the bottom of your post doesn't work for me.
Do i need to subscribe first?

You will find lots of beetles on the forum both on the rc10 and other chassis.
I have a new parma one waiting for me to pick which car it will go on.
I have run another parma beetle for too many years and it's without doubt the strongest body you can get.

This link will give u some idea what it's about.

Those HPI 2.2 inch star wheels are proving to be the hens teeth of the RC world in Australia. I think I have 2 more hobby stores to call in Melbourne & then I have exhausted all avenues.
