Small Update!! Finally found some time to work on this project a little bit! Got the cockpit pretty much squared away, plumbed in the fuel and steering lines, added brake pedal and master cylinder, throttle pedal and linkage, & shifter. Put in the motor plate and dash, added the guages and on/off switch. The seat is just sitting in there for now, but will be installing it and the belts soon, then it's on to the suspension!

I quit. I cant hardly mount the front suspension and you super stars keep making stuff like this. It aint fair! LOL Seriously though that looks awesome! I just hope the decals match the quality of the build!

VERY slow progress on this project, but finally found some time to get back to the table and get some stuff done! The front suspension is basically finished up, just have to add the torsion arms and sway bar, put the brakes on then it's finished up. Used parts from Dirt Modeler and RB Motion on the front end. The wheels are aluminum wheels from Micro Nitro, I added bolts from Scale Hardware to the Dirt Modeler wheel centers, and drilled out the holes on the wheels so they can be mounted and dismounted, which gives a couple of display options. Hopefully getting this little bit done will keep me motivated so I can get some more stuff done! Thanks for looking!

Amazing work. I have no idea how you can make it look so good, being so small.
