RE-Grand Prix Style

Many Projects... Time to step it up.

Any drift car that pushes the limits of control is bound to have a few "incidents"

With the street look of the black FD3s no longer looking it's reflective best, especially on the doors and rear corners, it was time to think about the next step.

With supply of some ORC Z33 decals from fellow Overdose DRb runner, I found a home for them.

I also decided to toughen up the FD3s a little with a huge vented bonnet from the Active Hobby Body shell I cut up for the Pan Speed FD.

The result is nearing completion. Ready for max attack.

The body includes...

Pandora RC Fd3s Base.
HPI Stage D RE-Amemiya N1-GT-AD Style Aero kit including light buckets.
Active hobby Wing and Hood scoop
Yokomo mirrors, wing stays, oil coolers, wipers
Yokomo S14 rear diffuser and custom supports

Yokomo front combination lamps and rear light buckets
GT Power light kit
Tamiya PS-5 Black Paint.
+ custom dash and more.

The Rocket Bunny pig now has a little too much poo on the rear. Drift scars and damage adds to the character. I added a few Tamiya stickers. You can't forget that Tamiya Polycarbonate paint is THE BEST. 

The old craft square mirrors on this "RE"-86 have taken quite the beating. Having been replaced twice.  So this time, I've reverted back to the standard door mirrors.

Kyle approves

This body includes

Tamiya 86
Addiction RC Rocket Bunny Aero Fender, Side Step, front bumper Fender extensions and front splitter.
Yokomo 86 Orido rear wing
Yokomo 86 light buckets modified
Yokomo Muffler, Intercooler
Yokomo GDB WRX vents and roof spoiler
Custom Rocket bunny decals.

So this body is ready for even more attack. A new tow hook up front, fenders and splitter re-attached. May the destruction re-commence.

While many enjoy the street look. I love these Full Attack D1 machines.
