Selling my Fully loaded Vintage Hopped-Up Hotshot which has been put together over a decade of searching for hard to find NIP hop-up parts. All hop ups are New from Packet, have never been run, only fitted to this lightly used full vintage chassis. The build cost me double what Im selling it for.


Body (never run) is taken from NIP Vintage Bodyset and painted white/candy blue.

Rare black alloy wheels which were the starting point for this project, I cannot recall the brand.

The front and rear shocks are You G, with Parma front and rear shock towers.

Alloy hubs, unsure of brand

Front bumper is You-G

Rear wing is Thorp DirtBurners.

Parma bump steer eliminator kit.

Motor is a modern dirt tuned Tamiya.

DirtBurners alloy spindles (steering knuckles) which were also NIP. I included a pic of when they were NIP but please note that they are now fitted but never ran. I have the header card which I'll include.

New in Packet Pro-Track Alloy Nerf Bars. Only ever seen 2 sets of these.

CRP battery cover

LRP Waterproof ESC

Futabo Servo

Vintage Manual


Also included is Brand new in packet Twister Ultra Stock 4WD motor with Pro-stock Hop Up Kit



I started to replace some of the screws with stainless steel but there are so many self tapping screws that I decided to leave them alone.

No other electrics included.

Chassis is overall in great condition. The front gear box plastic housing has a small crack but is functional and you can replace if you wish. When I hook a battery to motor wires it all spins smoothly.

I have yet to find a more hopped up Hotshot.

Please see pics and ask me any questions!

Thanks!
