    Cheers mate, not much progress, been trying to sort my paint problem :(

    Anyway, here’s the roller!

    Also had four of these turn up today so I thought it would be rude not to try them in the project box … One wouldnt even fit :(

    Right guys not done an update on this for quite awhile and busy with work but here goes. I had a bit of a disaster with the body, I got overspray on the bonnet, strippeD this and then the new paint reacted so i stripped the whole body and then the glue reacted to the strippeR, All the STRENGTHENING parts fell off and the result was the body snapping in two :(

    Moving on after alot more work i’m back to where i leFt off … I’ve now built an interior as well and fitted my fuel cell/ battery holder.

    Also a big thanka to Andy who has REBUILT and tweaked the motor for me so it’s now better than new!

    All it needs is some scale accessories and a driver and it’ll look even better!

    Worth mentioning (sorry if I already have!) the Tamiya Bruiser driver figure fits the seats very well indeed, his legs have been cut off below the knee (poor bloke!). I needed to shave some of the plastic from his back but once done his profile fits snug and his arms reach the steering wheel too. Cost less than a fiver from Banzai…

    Thanks for all the positive comments guys :) Really pleased with how this is going now! I went to my local modelshop last night and got some more cable so I should be able to wire this up later i the week!

    C.a.r :- don’t worry a driver is planned along with a jack and some other bits and bobs. Thanks for the tip on Banzai, so real good deals on there!

    Bill:- this one is staying put for the time being ;)

    Steviedee:- wouldn’t be the same without the decals mate :)

    sparks1337:- she’s a little more refinded now mate isn’t she … I was starting to wonder if it would ever come together myself actually.

    Lol … I’ve got 3 years at least as she’s just gone back to uni, come
    To think Of it that might not be long enough at the speed i work at! ;)

    Well i’ve got lots of little bits and bobs done so i’ll pop so pics up below, these include modded battery box, 5 mm longer and bent steering bar for beTter steering angle? New upper links, detailing on fuel cell, wired the whole thing up etc!

    I think all I have to do now is paint my radio box, paint the dash, find a driver who fots well, aloy c hubs and lockouts, maybe new wheels and Decide if i should Run the ESC cable With two battery plugs as i can squeze two BATTERIES in the fuel cell … Oh and some more detailing!
