I've been building a special Bullet Racing Products aftermarket version. It was the first to use a long wheelbase and had trailing arms. The wheelbase was extended by 1" to match the Schumacher Cat XLS. It's crazy how short the wheelbase of Kyosho cars were back then. The Ultima had a very short wheelbase too.

This looks awesome, my first true competition car was the Optima Mid and I absolutely loved it! This is a Beautiful example! Iím on the hunt to rebuild whatís left of mine as we speak.

Very nice build. Do you have a body for it, or are you on the hunt?
