Baja Bug, Texas Style: Jeff Vitale’s Tamiya Sand Scorcher

Apr 29, 2014 1 Comment by

A year in the making, this beautiful Sand Scorcher comes to us from Jeff Vitale of Lubbock, TX. Highlights include a custom fabbed interior roll cage, ball stick shifter, complete dash, and NOS tanks–the driver even sports a seatbelt (safety first, even if you’re made of plastic). Custom-lettered tires are mounted on aluminum hubs and nicely match the VW buggy body complete with hinged sunroof. Lookin’ good Jeff!

About the author

I've been involved in RC for over 25 years, and first joined Air Age Media in 1997. I served as Executive Editor until 2008, when I went to work on the manufacturing side of the RC biz. Now back at RC Car Action, I'm thrilled to be doing what I love most--not just enjoying RC, but sharing it with all of you. In addition to RC, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife Kathleen and our wonderful daughter Audrey.
