Default vega 4

i will start with saying thanks to Lewis an Will from team xtreme for all there hard work over the last few weeks with putting me a car together.

iv had the vega 4 at 2 test day a 2 meeting now an im starting feel its quicker than my durango an there is a lot more to come from it yet.

we have just spent the weekend at the maritime off road track the car was fast if not the fastest 4wd on track. it was the only car to make 19 laps but i had a dry solder jont brake in the final i was in the lead having a really good race.

i hope they will have some more info on the vega 4 soon an get it out in the shop in a few weeks/months

thank you
Ed Kerry

Default Vega 4

Have to say this is a real engineering work of art. A credit to all involved. It goes as well as it looks.

The car looks fantastic and sure goes well. Shame about the final breakage, good to see Will get 3rd with his tho. Hopefully it won't be long before its released, can see this being my next 4wd.

It will be a complete car, no conversion. There isnt really a donor car specific to the prototypes, they have bits of everything on them! Pretty much everything under the shell is our own parts
