|Further Description/Back Story||I saw this rally car on the shelf at ACS Hobbies and thought it would be something different to build.
Once I got it home and found the original bumperettes were in the box, I started searching for photos of CV2's for some other ideas.
This led to cutting out the real wheel openings, building the chassis in the "low ground setting" and mounting the body low on the body posts.
I swapped out the rally tires for the Tamiya 60D radials and painted the wheel centers to match. The M4 acorn nuts help finish the look.
