Thanks guys..

It is a Horman HT3 V2 Light with the full Titanium Upgrades..

Can't wait to have it in my hot little hands.
As I said, I have been waiting around a month for this.
A lot of emails back and forth and with the time differences it usually takes a day or 2 for a response.
Martin Hormann is also an extremely busy person and hard to track down..lol

My painter should have the car today and then hopefully I will have it early next week.

hormann ht3 looking great! they are a mean machines. hormanns handle extremely well,coming from the basher buggies to these really opened up my eyes to what could be done!!!
also the pipe is great for smooth power but really restricts the top rpm's. i got victory to make me an all round power pipe for tuned engines, great for pull off all the way upto top revs. what buggy did you have prior to this?
will be nice to see it when fully put together.

Well guys it has arrived and I am soo happy with it..
The level of workmanship is excellent..Extremely well made.

The only problem is the chassis, which is not the lightened one like I had ordered. They are sorting it out for me now though.

Here is my new shell. Painted for me by my sponsor and all round top bloke..
Thanks Callan. (King RC)

Well, let me start by saying how amazing the machining quality is.
All the fits and tolerances are perfect and everything just snaps right into place and the screws go in..
It is that easy...

Lets start with the front hubs..
