You could just call it a toothbrush motor and I can't mess with you :D

or just look at the title of the thread :rofl:

Found a new Cuc without the unsightly panty lines - Gene/ZR1 just made a new mold :dance3:

Body change of plans - the Billy Watson body is going on this build after all, and the new Gene/ZR1 body is going on the new HR Big Wheels Cuc build. The misstep was caused by not remembering the Billy Watson re-pop was based on a Victor Ferguson body, which is significantly wider than a standard Cuc. The new Gene/ZR1 body is same dimensions as an original, so it's not wide enough for this car.

My mistake, sorry for the confusion :pardon:

Billy can sand off or fill in the fender lines and pull a new body. I'm sure he would not have a problem with that.

Cool, Red, that's a thought. I'll ask when we race in April. Hope you will be there?

 

Used my awesome fishing skills to harpoon the first pin hole in the Billy Cuc body

Test result:

Excellent in every way, plain and simple, no improvements needed.

John Clow and I both drove it fairly hard for about 20 laps with zero deslots.

It's done  :sun_bespectacled:
