Looks like fun if you have the time to do it, do you have to paint bits as well or does it just need assembling?

I have a few,

A Yokomo YR-4M for drifting, all carbon but hard to find parts for.

A TC3 (electric) for outdoor racing, very popular

A TC4 team (electric) for indoor racing, one of the best you can buy.

A CEN GX1 (nitro) again for outdoor racing. Superb and a lot of fun

All are four wheel drive.

6 different shells, all sprayed differently.

is this the same make as the tezza drift car :unsure:

what parts do you struggle to find, tuning parts or just replacement original parts

Sorry for High jacking your thread Jay M

your models starting to take shape and looking good,

I always end up with glue every where :lol:

nice one, same type as my one, one tip though, dont use superglue as its way too harsh for the plastics and ruins the lights, makes them look all fogged up. good luck with the project though!

Yes mate it is the same make, Yokomo, just a different model. Its the OEM replacement parts that are tricky to get hold of. Have remade the upper deck now with a few of my own tweaks.
