Been contemplating doing this for some time now but the price put me off.

But I spotted a great bargain on the internet, let rip with the credit card and the goodies arrived today


Quick photo before the fitting mission commenced.

I was all upset with you for a moment.


Oh the temptation to tease a little more

can't be resisted

Is that better?

Just needs me to sort out wheel nuts and make my mind up.

And part with lots of cash

Haha! Good one. Both cars will look awesome with their respective OZs. The wheels will be a pain in the ass to clean though! Used to be into RC car racing myself. Funnily enough it all stopped when it started fiddling with real cars. Great hobby though and taught me a lot.

The little cossie's always had the wrong wheels on it as they were missing out of the kit and they didn't have more so it got some Civic 5-spokes.

I was actually looking on ebay for real Focus RS wheels when I found the baby Oz's, they looked identical to what was needed but were tons cheaper than the proper Escort ones I'd seen at £20 just for 2


Not used it proper for years but the Cossie's just had some of the transmission casings replaced which had cracks in them and new motor & elec speed controller - it's got proper diffs and multi link wishbone suspension so is great for seeing how stuff actually works. Even tho it's an early TA01 model there are still places doing repalcement sets of parts.

I noticed how much fun it is cleaning the Oz wheel last night

I should have said 'real' Oz wheel lol - I've got 1 staying with me at the moment. Possible viewing on the car on the weekend
