This is my first build kit :paranoid: took me a while to get here but it is a work in progress, not much left to do other than an interior with a drivier, paint the front and rear spoilers, paint the side rear view mirrors and chop the posts. :welder: I'll update it once, I've completed the car, next a test drive.

Looks great man. Gotta love a Tamiya kit. Bust out a black fine tip flet pen and add the door lines etc. You will be amazed at how much that makes the body pop!

Thanks.

I was going to do a build segment but you guys have seen this set ups many time before. :dry:

TT-O1 Type E chassis 4WD, 20 T motor, HPI tires, Spektrum receiver, Tamiya light kit and a run of the mill servo since I won't need metal gears on the guy.
It came together fairly well over all.

Except for the interior and driver missing, I think the body is pretty much done.
