    Brave! We worked out that my friends Stolly could be insured for 4,000 miles/year for a reasonable sum. Then we worked out it was £12,000 worth of fuel to drive that far :blink: and they don’t like being driven on Tarmac with fresh tyres either!

    Very cool project, are the wheels going to steer front and back?[/quote]

    Front 4 wheels will do the steering same as the 1;1 ,via 2 servos wedged in somewhere :unsure:

    Just hope it doesn’t ‘wind up’ like the real ones. I had one throw itself out of a roundabout after going around it three times.

    An rc4wd 2 speed box is going in the rear with a reduction transfer drive, it is being powered with an lrp big block 2 motor (550 size )so should get some good torque :)

    I’ll have a dig in the loft for my old pics so you can get the scale bits right. Looks brilliant so far.

    Looks stunning so far and the drive train should make it really scale in the way it drives too!

    I think if it had loads of articulation it wouldn’t right, as it is its perfect IMHO.
