    Yeah, buts it's missing an OFFY under the hood.( which it never came with anyhow). Actually you aren't getting a whole lot of anything for that kind of money. Looking at all that he has up for sale, he definitely has many expensive toys he's trying to get rid of. Way TOOOOOOO RICH for my blood. Guess I'll just have to continue to scratch build 1/8th sprint car my needs.

    I am using a foam insulation board that MADD also sent me. It is an 1 1/2 thick and fiberglass resin 1/8th sprint car does not react to it. It been real easy to work with as far as shaping the foam. I can't take all the credit, if it wasn't for MADD and his knowledge of working with fiberglass and the sprint car reference material this would have a much harder project to do.

    Mike, looks like the sprint build is headed in the right direction. Glad I could be of assistance on this project. It makes a person feel good when the results of his helping out look GREAT. Can't wait to have it in the MF shop, for getting your molds made.
    GREAT job!!!!!!!

    Tim the car uses a quickchange rear and straight axle for front. I going to use a BigT kit for the suspension parts. And of course the Offy that TDR 1/8th sprint car is doing.

    Mike, after spending so much time on that body, have you given any thought to going all out and scratch building a chassis and suspension out of brass?

    I am planning to build a chassis for the car. I don't want a curbside car. As far as the suspension, I will scratch build 1/8th sprint car the hairpins, front and rear bumpers, nerf bars and other parts. Since this the first time working with fiberglass, why not make my first time using brass. I don't think the car could support it self if I built it out of plastic, so brass it is.
