Default Rear Shock Tower & Wing Mounts......

So with the Rear Tower,

I wanted to fit the Top Force style wing mounts. Having searched Ebay with no joy. I messaged a member on Ebay and also on here to see if they could be replicated or the ones that were being made could be slightly modified. But sadly no reply on Ebay or On here. So the search went on, and on, and on..... Until I finally managed to get a TAMIYA Original set.....

So Tamiya Original wing mounts fitted.....

Default Rear Shock Tower....

I fitted the Fibre Lyte wide rear tower to the Fibre Lyte rear ballstud mount. I am still awaiting purple nuts, but once here I will fit........

What I like about this is the extra shock holes for tuning and the tower has 3 positions to fit High, Middle and Low. I take it this is for droop. I have settled for the middle for now, this may change once we build the shocks.......

Default Rear Wishbones...

So on to the rear end. New wishbones and New Hinge Pins for this. I still cant get over the price. £1.35 each and I must say, they are quality. Im shocked how good they really are....

This has to be a leader in Vintage running surely. When you look at the price of,

RPM 91 Worlds wishbones at £100 plus a pair
Losi XX at around £20 for 3D printed and £35 plus a pair for Losi....

Come on £1.35 each.....

Default Rear Wishbones Fitted....

Rear Wishbones fitted to the Gearbox hangers. Again all went well no issues and the hinge pins flew in. Better than those fronts....

Default Rear fitted to Chassis.

So with the rear end/gearbox ready and 4 new slotted countersunk screws ready.... errrrrh it was time too fit to the Fibre Lyte Chassis.......

I really dont like these slotted screws against new fresh high gloss Fibre Lyte Carbon............

With a very steady hand, all went perfect. Now we are looking like a COBRA..............

Absolutely stunning One of my favourite builds already

How tempted were you to bin the slotted screws and update to Hexs?

The purple is giving me some Cougar 2 Works vibes, also maybe my all time favourite buggy!

Would love a new Evo but it's too pricy for me at the moment

Default Comments.....

Aire,

Thank you for comments, I love the PURPLE against the black Carbon.... makes a nice difference to TRF blue..........

Dom9,

Thank you...

Yes I was almost going to change the screws, but wanted to try and keep the 90s look. But yes I almost changed the screws.

Your correct, the PURPLE and black carbon is very much like the Cougar 2 WORKS..... That is a beautiful buggy, I wish Schumacher would RE-RE it....

Yes the EVO is a pricey 2wd really. But for me, the Original COBRA is the one, still looks cracking today......

To be honest, this has cost me more than the EVO to build to this standard and getting all the parts.
