Please post whatever kit you have built (or re-built) out of leftover parts in here.

It's rainy season here in our country and there's not much racing fro me. I'm thinking of building something out of the many spare parts I have.

I'm not scratch-building a car, but I do have an ongoing project with a Yokomo MR4-BC 4wd off-road buggy. I am looking to combine parts with the MR4-TC Special and MX-4. I might even add some losi shocks to it. This will be a long term project, but I will post some pics of it when I get the chance.

I made a 4x4 stampede. It has a custom chassis and skidplates and several of my own inovations. With two 17x2 Speed Gems with p-94 brushes this thing hauls. It will not flip no matter how hard I turn it. It is definitely my favorite rc to play with.

this thing hauls at about 65-70 but when i make my FWD it will have a two-speed!!!!!!woohooo!!! then i dont know if i will be able to control it. and is there any fellow 13 year olds that build their own things around here?????

right now I am in the middle of making an FWD XXX-S Funny Car. Everything is going smoothly with it, but the belt thing is getting pretty bad. I have to search around at the hobby shop for a shorter one.
