    This car has a bit of a history behind it. My mate brought it around a few years ago to run in the motor, and it got left behind. It was a shitty touring car so first I chucked the Tamiya Hummer tyres on it, but the stock gearing was WAY too high. Recently I have put the tyres that were originally on the minizilla knockoff on and it looks and drives REALLY nicely with them. Spent 20 minutes yesterday practicing Scandinavian flicks with it. 😀

    EVENTUALLY I will paint that Brumby (Brat) shell up for it and it will become a paddock-basher.

    Wow I don’t know why but that body looks really awesome to me for some reason… I would love to see some pics of the painted body on the truck.

    Haha! Cheers guys. I have noticed SO many Brumbies in Horsham. My Dad jokes the Subaru dealer here in 1986-89 must have made a killing!

    blurrc, they are proper tough-looking little trucks. Check out this YouTube video thats the sort of thing that got me interested in them…
