Twin Detonator

I *always* need a car for beach running. I don't know why - I supposed I'm a beachcarmaniac. A few years ago, I bought my Juggernaut which I converted to a beach car. I even have a very cool movie of me running my car in the salty seawater (note: don't EVER do that). Later, I wanted more speed, so I bought the Gravelhound. When fitted with a 16x1 motor, it went really fast, but it's a bit boring going back and forth over the hard sand - no obstacles or track.

So now, I'm trying a new approach: a fast dune-runner. And that's where the twin detonator comes in. I plugged 2 sport tuned motors in here, and it's now somewhere in between the gravelhound and the juggernaut: a bit faster than the juggernaut, and a bit more terrainworthy than the gravelhound.

The body was painted with left over cans of paint, using stickers from various models. The numbers are from a Ferrari F360 Modena Daytona body.

The chassis. This is actually a beginner-car, making it really tough and simple. The disadvantage is that the gearboxes come pre-assembled, so they have to be taken apart to fit bearings. I also fitted oilshocks, to replace the standard friction dampers - which are rubbish.

The speedo is a GM SX6R. It's a really good speedo, I actually raced this one in my TA05 for a bit, and it worked really well. As a matter of fact, I'm still running the same type without reverse (SX6) in my TA05.
