This was a quickie build..... Just did some superspeedway mods to the body. Taller rear spoiler w/braces, dual outlet exhaust, and I smoothed out the nose. The paint is Tamiya white with 2 part Omni clear just like the 1:1 car. The decals were JWTBM.

Thanks for looking....

Nice Job!!!!! very clean, and you got a good stance, which is tricky with those taurus kits!!

This is a 04/05 Profinish style Taurus kit. The 00/03 glue kit was the one that had the issues with the stance. All I did to get it to sit lower was cut off the front axle pins and glue the wheels directly to the spindles. The rear I omitted the metal axle and glued the wheels to the ends of the axle.

Excellent job!! It's hard to believe it was a "Quickie build". The way you did the wheels to get the right stance is the only way to really get it right.
