Would be cheaper but it is more fun making your own thing. The feeling when you have finished it is undescribable!

Surely it would be cheaper to buy a havoc then make your own ?

This is my new project as I cant afford a Havoc!

Although it will have the 3 speed box in it, only 1st will function as the clutch fries otherwise. Havoc wheels do fit so Im keen to try them as it is really designed for them. it should be quite a bit lighter than a havoc and it is shorter geared so it should go as quick, but its going to be hard to make it as strong.

The arms are quite heavy, but at least they wont bend like Tony Blair on an election promise!! Thats part of the reason for this project as I got some "hop up" alloy arms which cost $90!!! Thats just under 40pounds!!! And they lasted only 2 tanks of fuel before they were that twisted they snapped my hub carrier!! What a joke Schumacher!

Anyway have a laugh.

Chassis is 3mm high tensile aluminium, which EVO 3 was made from and is surprisingly strong.

Next to my stock XTR

P.S. Smiley, I know what your thinking so dont even bother!!
