LC Torana GTR-XU1 #7 Bob Jane - Scratchbuild using Resin body

This car has been built from scratch, using a Holden Torana XU-1 resin body I purchased from John (Auslot member Munter). Has taken a few months, as I've only been able to spend little bits of time here and there. I used a PCS32 chassis and running gear with Slot-It blank hubs fitted with John's inserts. This is a very narrow car, had to cut several mm off the standard axles, in order to get the wheels to fit inside the body. Thought that getting the body as low as posible would help the handling as well as the look, but may try something different on my next one. I have put a fair bit of lead to try to balance out the top heavy body and narrow track, and it drives quite nicely now, although it still has a tendency to tip if you don't get the corners right. I am going to try fixing the front axle in place using a suggestion of Bram's to see if that might help stabalise it a bit.
