A Friend's Turbo Optima Project...

Post by FasterLouder »

A friend built this up out of parts he had,an HPI RS4 M/T Beetle body,Traxxas Anaconda wheels/tyres etc...You'd be hard pressed to guess there's an Turbo Optima under that body!
Well done,Mark (builder)! :mrgreen:

Love the way it looks, but don't those big tires touch the body while cornering?

LOOKS SWEET, here is a kyosho tomahawk that I picked up off ebay earlier this year that was overhauled frame was powder coated bright red he used the same hpi body your friend used with a little different flair, he cut out the motor section and added a wingit came out pretty cool even though the paint job is crappy. I have plans on changing the body to a kamtec tamiya bug someday.
