memory lane.........1/8 style

03 April 2014 - 12:24 PM

just thought i'd post some of my old builds. some of you might enjoy looking at them.

 

my first 1/8 build.  some of the highlights were:

 

tig welded stainless tubing chassis

 

my first billet aluminum engine, bell housing and lenco transmission.

 

my own billet aluminum wheels

 

unfortunately, this car did use R.C. tires.
