    So, did you try with your sisal yet ?

    New video is up :


    forgot the straw-balls this week end tough :/

    Porsche is really rear engine mounted/rear wheel drive (M06), so, it was a bit harder. Most of other are XV01.

    Good stuff! Nice to have some friends and organization. Watching all this on-road makes me want to put one together again.

    Nice!

    Is the Porsche a Tamiya body?

    How about the black rally car; It looks like an Escort MK2 (?).

    I think you've already seen it but here's the successful straw-bale outcome (thanks for your initiative):

    Yup, saw your topic about the straw-ball. It looks awesome ! I'll really need to build my own device like yours !

    About the bodies, the Porsche is indeed a Tamiya 934 (I've been told they get hard to find and kinda expensive ?)



    Chassis is a classic Tamiya M06, extended to the max, and switched back A-Arm to the front, and rear are now TL01's. You still need a bit of offset on the rims tough.

    Pretty common rally car back in the days.



    And the black rally car (witch is actually midnight blue) is indeed a Ford Escort mkII. You can find the pretty easily on eBay from a Norwegian guy. We have a lot of them, as we really like them, but they are super easy to break !



    You need to cut the front bumper on the XV01 to fit them as they are quiet short nosed. Like the Rally Legend's 151.

    We had a black car tough, the Quattro :



    it's from Carson.

    Great cars! Thank you. I'm quite smitten with the Escort but $75 (shipped) for a fragile body could be painful..

    You might be able to find them in a LHS or something ? The brand is Retro Racing.
    Still, for that price, you won't get the windows masks. You just get a few sponsors stickers, front grill, and rear sticker lights. Plus a set of wheel (minilite like) Those on the Vaillant Escort up here. And body is split in half. You've to glue it (front clip/rest of the body). So, yea, at the end of the line, it's an expensive fragile body.
    There are a few more pictures if you want :

    with HPI vintage tires. Fit waay better the era of the car.






    an attempt with some M-chassis wheels.


    the real one :


    All those aren't mine tough. Credits goes to Evoced, but I don't think he is registered here.
