    That is nice, wasnt sure about the wheel colour to start with, but have looked again and it is not bad at all.

    Nice one mate.

    I'm looking for a B5 close to mine with correct colour seats and current alloys and i'll get it painted to my colour.
    I'm trying to find one for my dad as well.

    B5 A4's are thin on the ground, made by UT and typically fetch £60+ on the bay of E. Been after one for ages, bid on a damaged one but even that went over the £40 max bid I put in

    There is a few on ebay for about £20 or less but I doubt they very good and lacking detail.

    Edit:=-

    Ok, so it's not a B5 but these are fun to race and look very good as shelf queens! 1/5 Scale

    You can also display the thing without a body and it would look just as good!

    I used to race them in the BRCA a few years back, the technology is amazing full independent hydraulic breaks front & rear with bias control via a 3 channel handset, tuned engine, electromagnetic diff and adjustable race clutch. Was a bugger to setup with all the different shock oils, springs and2&3 hole pistons for the shocks, then camber & caster, toe in & out,it was a single speed gearing but you could change the gear ratio’s for low-endgrunt or top-end speed, and there was also metal discs with standard pads, or compositediscs with metal pads.....


    Ended up jacking it in and selling up, as it was just getting to expensive, a pair of tyres would be about £30, and there were around 5-6 different compounds, and during a race meeting you would easy destroy 2pair of tyres, then there was entry fee & travel to the tracks + the amountof spare kit you would need....

    Yeah GT3 RS, made by a company called Welly. My fave model is the white sierra Cosworth which has carpet and fabric seats.

    The GT3 was oddly only £30, most were about the £40 mark but the 2 Sierras were about £80-90. I usually pick them up at RS Owners Club shows from traders.
