Build of Tamiya Lamborghini Countach club runner

Last weekend I was going through my Countach spares where I found enough parts to build another car… but this time, this one will be to enjoy running at my new club.

I’m at the stage of selecting a final body colour to spray on to the lightly repaired bodyshell. The ‘glass’ will be the final addition to the restoration, as the original perspex was cracked and even had a load of blue overspray! The previous owner wasn’t too careful with applying the body paint.

I have an old Sport Tuned motor that will breathe new life again, and I have installed a new steering servo. A new ESC is on the way and may have to source a new battery, as the original one is quite old, but will charge it up to see how it goes first.

Once this project is complete, I’ll post more photo’s, and maybe some video of it’s on-road performance!
