I'm hoping when I post a picture of the reproduced body and the mold it will generate new interest in the model. Who knows , maybe I'm waiting my money. Who knows.

All my stadium blitzers will be sporting one of these bodies just because I can . But now I'm looking to start buying up FXT's and fitting them up and flipping them.

Are you going to be molding these with over-spay film?

Those things where awesome trucks back in their day. They where kinda weird though. Kinda like a cross between a gold pan RC10 and a tamiya stadium blitzer. If I recall the chassis is aluminum correct? I haven't seen one in 10 years or longer.

For those looking to pick up one of these beauties the one pictured by bulletproofcustoms, on page 2, is now on Ebay. As is what looks like newly built kit, but with no body. Good thing we know where to get one.

Now all we need is a reproduced decal sheet.

I'll be making my mold today. That new build had the body I now have. I contacted the owner had he came up with another kit with an uncut body he did the swap , sold the kit , that guy kept the body is now reselling that kit. If that makes sense?

I don't think there's one in this forum yet, so with my latest RC vehicle (obviously, the Futaba FXT) I've decided there should be a thread on it.

Yeah, What happened? I just saw MIRacing is offering an FXT decal set, just begging for a newly molded body.

Default Hello

Hey guys , I was in a real bad car wreck back when I started playing with this mold. As a result , I ended up with a severe brain injury . 2 years later I'm almost back to normal , wife bailed , all my stuff went into storage. About to short sale house , cant hold on to it alone but I was unpacking last week at my new place and found this mold I had forgot about. Never had luck with the process but will be buying more stock for another go. Update to come soon. ,
