Default Thinking of a project...

Allright guys, seems like you have been busy with dremels, and the like, but I was at work contemplating using my old tc3 as the basis for a 4wd buggy prototype (a-la BJ4 Worlds). However, I would like to achieve something a bit different such as laydown shocks (a-la Cat 2000 EC). Just wondering what people thought about this?

Laydown shocks shouldnt be a problem if you can mount them to the top deck, hardest part (as im sure you'v read on hear) is making a slipper for it.

Good look

I think I might have that covered, I was thinking of making a specialist chassis for it (with batteries at the rear) and using the bj4 centre piece and new b44 slipper arrangement when it comes out.

Most likely yes! Thought about a slimline chassis like on the aero/s4.

Ok, theres alot of people making touring cars into buggies now so im going to turn my old tamiya into one, BRB

Good look with this, i know it will turn out better than anything i do (im more like a butcher than a modeller)

Make sure you take plenty of pics
