Default RE: Return of Lunchbox..

i just finnished my rebirth of the gold lunchbox!!!!

not so gold now though, called "ferrago" because its made from many cars, chassis and body are lunchbox, front arms are the futaba fx10 doube wishbone style! front uprights are madbull, shocks and bases are fighter buggy, steering servo mount is m-04, gearbox is fighter buggy the clear one with coloured gears, at the moment the wheels are madbull, but might go with wild willy 2.

oh and im thinking brushless now hehehe anybody used the ezrun set up?

Thank you!, I have no idea yet, as I'm in Alaska and there's two feet of snow down right now. I'll shoot video this spring at a large open grassy field with the trigger floored.

Hey thanks! I posted close up pics on page 282. It is pretty simple, just get the Integy aluminum wheely king wheelie bar and connect it as I have shown or you can connect how you want but can't be sure it will sustain wheelies like mine. I'm also using Proline Badlland wheels which are larger than stock, I'm sure they have an influence on sustaining wheelies as well. I'm going to try my Proline Road Rage and see if I can still sustain wheelies but I assume there might be a change. Hey you have an awesome set up there with lots of mods, Ibet your itching to run it.

Its complete
Well except for clear coat... But it is up and driving and loving every minute of it!
Next classic is going to be the Avante... Then maybe a Midnight Pumpkin or a Clod...if the wife doesn't notice too much!

Guys I a set of RC Lights that I used on my Pumpkin for a while but have since taken off. It is a 4 white light and 2 red light set up that works great and doesn't take up much room.

If someone wants them and will use them on there Pumpkin or Lunchbox I'll send them to you at no cost.

Orcatkt it looks sweet, how the kids like it? I always wanted an Avante back in the 80's but never picked one up, they should bring that one back.
