Racing Touareg

I used to have the Pajero, but I sold it at one time to free cash for some other cars. I did like the chassis though. So when the Touareg came out, I decided that one day - I would buy it. A couple of months ago I ordered it from conrad.be, where it was pretty cheap. The order process was hell, and after their fourth mistake, it now looks like all wrong bills have been credited, and their exhortations have been cancelled. I hope I will buy there again, and there will not be as many problems.

Anyway, the chassis is identical to the pajero, except for the wheelbase, which is about 2cm longer. The body is not as nice as the pajero's, but it's lexan, and therefore more robust. I got the idea for the paint scheme from a Tamiyaclub member (I just don't remember who it was!) but used a blue paint (forgot which number, but it's definately a tamiya lexan paint). I guess it's an age thing - forgetting everything...

Lights are 'blanked out', I will create LED sockets and add LEDs for all lights - Just need some time to do it. As all my cars, this one also has the tamiya stars...

Blanked lights once again, also notice the narrowed bumper.

No electronics yet. I plan to install one of those tamiya speedos and a standard servo / receiver.

Hummer wheels. I hate the standard rims, these are so much cooler. I also have some pajero rims in the drawer, might use a set of those. Other options so far: full bearings, universal shafts in the front. Rear diff is locked.

Will add high-torque servo saver and possibly a ball bearing steering. Then there will be lights as well, I hope to be able to add working brakelights.

Final picture: the car that was the inspiration. If you know whose car this is, tell me, so I can give him credit!
