    I had a monster beetle also. Wish I would have kept mine too. Wasn't as nice to look at as Robs but I still had $2300.00 into including the cost of the car itself.

    Just the looks of the beetle. I never really bashed it, just drove it at the grass park.

    I've got to admit it looks cool! I still would like to drive a FG someday, but I think my next is going to be the MCD, unless something real cool comes out this year.

    Yeah, but with some of the 4x4 large scales coming out, you might be even happier going that route?

    By the way, will your 'wife' be there when we come out to run this summere???

    Nice beetle Rob.I just picked up a FG MT and have a beetle body and mounts on the way.It's hard to tell but is that a MB PRO version?How did you like it?
    I think by changing the body on the MT you can make it a MB.Anything else I will need to do??:cool2:
