I got my Goose in the mail about a week ago, such a cool little car. Only thing I was a little dissapointed about was the fact that it comes pre-assembled, I really wanted to build the thing, but other than that I'm pretty happy I bought one.
Still haven't decided on electronics yet, it probably won't be raced so I'm thinking either a 13.5 or maybe a 17.5. Any sugestions on a good combo and size?

I also picked up a set of HPI Cup Racer Porsche Fuch wheels and their Porsche body. You can't get any more scale on road than a rear motored, rear wheel drive Porsche!

Are you going to paint the inner spokes black? I will post a picture of mine later.

I'm not sure what I want to do with the paint job yet, I do like the look of the all white and then paint the spokes of the wheels red. I might go that route.

I'll post up some pics of the chassis whenever I hit my 10 post mark

Here are a few pics of my Goose.
Decided I'm going to run a Tekin RS with a 17.5 in it, should be plenty for this car I think.

Yeah, I saw your green porsche, it looks good! I do like the painted spokes a lot.

It's just sitting low because there are no pre-load spacers on the shocks, so when I put the battery in it the chassis pretty much bottomed out.

I did a quick fit up with the HPI Porsche body and it's going to be a close fit around the battery, I may have to trim a bit off the battery holder.

I like the idea but IDK with the 4WD you can drift or race. Not that I wouldnt still love just the RWD platform. Are you guys planning a class for this chassis alone or planning on throwing it in with the 4WD platform?

Hey Patrick.. tell us about the new front motor/rear drive chassis with the replica 4-cylinder engine covering the motor...

longitudinal-mounted directly to the shaft drive via a drive shaft.... with an opening hood

Default 2T-G engine

Wow! Even a rotating radiator fan & crank pulley, just like the real TOYOTA 2T-G engine. Just add the sound for the dual Solex carburetors, and you're good to go.

that third photo looks like it has one of those sound-making devices installed... I like the inner fenders and opening hood too... it even had carbs and spark wires....

here's the sound maker device

+ YouTube Video

I need to find someone to actually translate this...
