Damn it looks aggressive
I'm with you brotha. I didn't like it at first but it's really grown on me. Now if we can just find some pics of the mid motor body.

If you look carefully at the layout at the rear, the shocks sit at the back of the wishbones in mid motor config, rather than at the front in rear motor config.

This means that the 'turrets' that enclose the shocks need to be moved further back on the body to accomodate this. Its why there is 2 shells in the kit. Although no pictures have appeared as yet....
