I have got this model about 3-4 years now. I bought it used with some defects and decided to do something with it.

This is the stock model (borrowed photo)

My model had a glued rear wheel, some minor scrathes here and there nad a small crack on the rear window. I replaced the rear wheels with a GMP drag wheel set, lowered the suspension and also replaced the exhaust pipes.

I like what you've done with it. It's much nicer now! I would keep it.

F**k you Photobucket.

That looks much better, I have a couple of them and I always thought they sit too high. How did you lower it, was it too much of a pain?

Well as i always say, i don't need the wheels rolling on my project models because i only display them static, so i removed the wheels ad glued them again where i wanted them.
