1/6 scale Mini Cooper

1/6 Eztec Mini Cooper with 3/8'' HDPE floorpan and Traxxas Bandit components. It has 3.2 Traxxas 5 spoke rims with Proline road rage 2.8 tires. So far the bandit upgrades include alloy servo saver/bellcrank, Savox high torque servo, CV axles, knuckles, castor blocks, uprights, big bore shocks, hinge pin brace, slipper clutch eliminator kit, spool, and 32 pitch gearing. I mounted the front suspension flat on the chassis and angled the steering setup parallel with the chassis too. I had to cut the trunk area to fit the shock towers, and cut the firewall for the Bandit top plate. So it will have front seats, the dash, and perhaps the front part of the rear seat depending on airflow. The hood, intercooler, mirrors and side exhausts are magnetic. It has custom yellow paint with black satin trim, painted interior, a driver and a wheel that spins. It has front lights powered by a watch battery so the hood can be removed easily, and the rest of the lights will run off a GT power light kit. Would like to have an in car camera and functional steering wheel. Some body mouldings were shaved and It will have Monte Carlo, Bridgestone, and Mini decals. Thanks to paulmcnamara16 on Youtube for inspiration and advice!
