This tamiya Honda S2000 was built for a contest , called "stancewars" , ends in a few days on june 30 , 2012 . This WAS A GREAT CHALLENGE , not only to build something that can have a chance of winning , but to do so much scratch building , finding parts , paint process , in 4 months time , for me , that was insane . The project is finished and I am more than happy with it . I had my ups and downs with this project . Here is a list of stuff scratch built or put on the project :
LAUNDRY LIST :
=scratch built J's Racing front bumper

=rims from tamiya calsonic R33 nissan skyline
=F1 style lug nut scratch built
=tires , resin version replica of aoshima stretch tires
