Posted: Sun 10 Aug - 12:32 (2014) Post subject: My Maverick Strada Dc evo
Always been into rc cars from a very young age, but the end of last year i decided to put my 1/18th scale custom team associated buggy to one side to make way for a drifter.
Chose the maverick strada dc evo because it was cheap and cheerful, ready to drift out the box.
Since owning it, iv added various lights, many wheels and tried and handful of setups.
its currently RWD now and still working on custom parts to allow me to drift consistantly and smooth as with the 4WD set up.
Modifications so far include (all made or modified by me )
* Custom aluminium steering arms for more lock * Removed front axles * Radius front tyres * Stretch look rear tyres (purely to clear the shell) * GT86 Rocket bunny shell * LED lights front * Aluminium front mount intercooler * Aluminium rear wing supports
I think theres more but iv forgotten.
Mods to come:
* More steering lock mods to try and acheive 80 degrees of lock, at about 60 to 65 degrees at the moment. * Front steering knuckles to be fitted to the rear for extra adjustment * Front splitter * Rear diffuser to fit * and many more
