G'day,

Well this is the beggining of whats going to be my most detailed and intricate build yet. well this started out as a revell good guys 55 Bel Air 2n1 kit i started to build about 4 houses ago so about 07 or 08. it sat around for a while until i decided what i really wanted to do with it. so now its going to be a salt flat racer! as youll be able to see from the pictures most of the chassis i have cut out so i can build the cage onto it and the tubs, rear fire wall etc. it'll have an tough aussie 9 inch diff in the rear( which is probably overkill considering the powerplant) with a 4 link rear end. Beam axle in the front. now my favorite part is the nosiy end, which will be a custom built twin turbo 26B quad rotor, caus' i love rotaries! oh im also converting it to RHD 

 

Thanks
