Body's mounted.

Would have liked it lower but there'd be tire rub with the existing wheel\tire combination.

Thought it was ready for a test run but the brand new Scale Auto motor proved to be a dud barely turning. Guess you're bound to get a bad one once in a while. Will get a replacement ASAP.

That is just wicked Dan. I love it!

Bummer about the motor but you're right, you get a dud every now and then.

Done!

Installed a MRRC motor, applied the one decal, Firestone logo, made a rollbar out of aluminum tube and got a driver figure in.

Image

Image

Finished off with vinyl cut roundels by Luf that helped mute the all black finish

Image

Wasn't much room for a driver figure. Needed filing down of the upper torso and mounting on top of the motor.

Image

Did a best lap of 7.8 on Luf's Big Targa, a reasonable one to keep up with the stock Slot Its.

Happy with the outcome, modeling and performance-wise.

Nice job! Love the oddball CanAms, and that's a cool one. Not a bad lap on the Targa, if you can hang with the Slot-it cars.
