My leopard's coming out to play for the first time tommorow,so at least there's one more out there to replace yours.

Going to the nook for my first race in about 17 years! I'll warn everyone at signing on to look out for a blue + white mobile chicane!

Yeah I did mate but I can't use fibreglass when racing and the Leo shells are stupid money if you can get them, so I thought about selfing it and gettin Sumat else but I decided to make a bit of money back off it and start a fresh lol

The Leopard shell isn't the same as the contrast unless you go back a good few years to when the Fuego first came out. The new style leopard shel is virtually the same if you go for the 4wd version.
