Pablo deserves almost all the credit on this one. He designed and built the chassis and all the assembly and details.

 
This Detail Models Inc. Tarantula DMX is quite a rare body. 
Paint and hand pin-striping by Jairus.
 
This motor was the last one I ever built and believe me it powers this car like a guided missile.
 
We raced it in the first international Thingie proxy. Several drivers were used in the proxy race however none of them were able to keep this thing on the track... too damn much motor.
 
Best offer by midnight Eastern time, Saturday, October 21, 2017. Note that this car is being sold “AS-IS.”

 

You can post your offer in this thread, or if you wish to remain anonymous, send your offer (stating clearly which car) either in a PM to Cheater here at Slotblog or email him at greg@slotblog.net, and he will post it for you without identification.

 

Please note this NEW REQUIREMENT: So anonymous bids can be posted to the threads before the auction ends, anonymous bids must be sent ONE HALF HOUR before the ending time listed for the car. For example, if the bidding closes at 11 PM Eastern for posted bids, anonymous bids must be received by 10:30 PM Eastern, whether sent via email or PM.

 

Buyer to pay shipping costs. Shipping in most cases will be via USPS “First-Class Package Service,” at least within the US. International shipping will be by method of winning bidder's choice at his expense. A small amount will be added for the cost of packaging materials. If insurance is desired (above any amount automatically included) the additional cost will be at the buyer’s expense. It is not expensive to add insurance to First-Class Package Service (for example, $200 of insurance costs just an additional $3.35).

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

Please note that one of the "O" ring front tires split and came off so it needs to be replaced
You can get one at any hardware or plumbing supply store for about a dime.
The rough spots on the body were caused by the glue they used on the track. They're on the inside of the body and can be removed. I got a lot of it off by scraping it with my fingernail.
