So I've been dying to have another Womp (I chopped up my two others). Looked on eBay and found one that was ending in three hours and got it.

It has Riggen wheels but the chassis isn't brass? So what is it?

It has an F1 style body on it that looks factory. There were no chassis shots. Mostly got it cause the back tires look barely used and will be nice when sanded, and figured I could use them on my REH Riggen pan.

Any thoughts? Thanks!

:) Most Womp chassis are steel not brass. Can you post a picture?

well after doing some research it isnt exactly a Riggen and it isnt steel. its a later issue Gayla or REH using Riggen tooling and its made out of aluminum. im thinking its a REH car because the body is very 80s looking. should be endbell drive too. well see when it gets here.

Looks very nice---like the motor down at chassis level! Pretty cool---let us know how it handles!!

Those are OK if you stick with the stock motor, glue in the bushings and the motor and throw a chunk o lead right behind the front axle....and never hit anything...
