Nice, reminds me of my old baja bug at Pismo Dunes! That stuff is hard on your back and body in general, but you know that, I don't do airborne anymore lol.

GC8 is my favorite chassis. I just like the front ends the most on the older ones. Had a bug eye in my driveway for some time. It grew on me. Hawk eye looks better than those though.

these are dirt cheap out here you can pick them up for $500 almost any day of the week i dought mine is even worth that i cant even get 500 for the lego in the back ground and its almost cherry condition and runs like a top we just dont need it anymore we have 6 roos right now lol and the new kona took its place as a daily driver the imp is just basicly so i can go play rcs in the desert or were ever lol

there is a guy in your area that builds desert racing subarus he basicly came up with a trick suspention set up that can handle the speed needed for racing hes not vary competitive out west here but he dose realy good in the south sadly though the unibodys disintigrate with abuse thats were my blue one is right now the sheetmetal is tearing and ripping apart
