Lysleder I totally agree with you, going to be a ton of work. The kit really has my interest and I tend to give up once my interest falls off a little. But like you said the deadline is far away so I have time for details. Bruce that chassis for the truck looks amazing just love all the details so far, I'm sure I will be stealing some of those ideas.
So I think for this for this years entry i will use my Bmw M1 procar I know it's pretty far from anything that should be off road . But I'm planning on building it like the class b rally cars of the early 80's. I will have to make an AWD system for it switch it to right hand drive, roo bars , and larger fuel tank. For the suspension I am going to copy the set up used by the Ford rs200 or the Lancia 037. Anyway this is the kit I'm starting with and where I hope to get
Some very unique builds all ready entered, I think I finally figured out something that I want to build I will go hunting through the parts tonight. Some very cool paint jobs Ray (helix) and Bruce (belugawrx) they have given me a few ideas.
