about the only thing i've done to it is a better air filter and some new rims and tyres .... at the moment its off the road as one of the diffs is grinding and i just couldn't be stuffed pulling 3/4 of the car apart to get it out
i also have this
it was going well, and then it nose dived over a small wave and broke the rear section ... it was repaired but its never been the same since then .... i might fix it one day .... but i also bought a much bigger Vee hull and i am toying with a whipper snipper in it and basically my first attempt at a full kit out (its just a bare hull) so one day
i also bought a cheap Vee off ebay and it has just been a waste of time from day one

This is mine
Hobao Hyper 10
Pretty stock, just done a little bit here and there.
I have a LH body for it, but am ordering the new 'Torana' body soon (the mangenta 2006 one)
I am also thinking of buying something like a hyper 8 or similar, but would really like to step up to something like a Baja 5b (1/5th scale), but somehow I dont think the mrs will let me have that sort of money!

Took to it with some oven cleaner to remove the blue, wet n dry a few times and buffed it.
I reckon it came up well, and it looks different

this is stress relief when the torana is out of action. high speed big jumps. good fun.

I used to have a 1:5 scale FG Beetle with the 23cc 2 stroke engine. It was pretty awesome. It weighed like 7 or 10 Kg or something like that and was pretty dangerous if you lost control, especially in a car park.
Mine had a K&N filter and tuned pipe, I actually made a stright pipe with no muffler. It had knobby tyres and also widened slicks.
I painted it yellow with 2 black stripes so it looked like the BBBBAD Torana except I called it the BAD BUG. lol.
I actually took it onto the strip at Willowbank one time when I was racing up there and Brett Stevens and the Jack Daniels crew came over to have a look. It would smoke up the tyres even.
On dirt the car is totally controllable like a real car and rooster tails and flicks out showers of rocks like you would not believe.
Actually accidently run myself over one day with it, lost my sense of direction as it was coming toward me and knocked me off my feet.
If you like model cars you gotta get one of the big scale cars for sure.
