    over a year away been busy with 1.1 scale car,bugs not been used for ages and currently in bits going through a major change in the shape of a new chassis I found cheap on ebay a hormann ht3 longer wheel base its about 565mm now most holes lined up but needed some adjustments in places lol ditched the radio tray and made a servo mount for throttle servo and a alloy mount for steering servo and servo saver support should keep front wheels down now,this is massive now makes the touring car look like a mwb
