Tomahawk & xls for me this year

Just got the tomahawk so it is new built, need to get the electrics sorted & the shell sprayed




The xls did look like this before i stripped it ready for anodising, shell also needs to go off for spraying

Fabix Cougar 2000 is going to be a force to be 'reckoned' with, with Mitch behind the sticks!!

My 4wd entry (a Lazer ZXR) is currently a collection of bits in a box

As is the 2wd car that I had intended to run..... a Losi JRX Pro SE - but I missed out on my entry having booked in too late (just 1hr after it opened!) - But it means that the JRX2 that I ran at the 1st Revival will get another outing

That was £70 bloody well spent. Looks pretty nice if the internals are OK...

It was actually ok, issue was it was based on a 2wd car that wasnt really that good which was a shame. I did ok with it at the British Grand Prix and got Brian Kinwalds attention as he came over & had a chat.

Here's my entry for Saturday, not quite as planned but with those oil dampers & a few top secret mods it's bound to prove a winner

@ Catman79

Your Lazer looks lush!

I see we've got the same front shock towers, I found the one on my car was cracked when I stripped it down, so put an order with Fibrelyte - I figured the brace across the top would help with strength?

Looks like I'm going to have to re-think my bodyshell design too - but Boxart does look great on these!
