This is my 3D printed "flat packed" rat rod. Based on an old SCX F1 chassis so the front wheels steer

Leave the bonnet off and find a bigarse motor, 24th scale would do, for the front

1. FuglyCool cars must be based on 1/32 RTR body and plastic chassis, and

Mac, I'd like to have a crack but I do have a problem with your 1st rule.

a) Does the chassis have to be the original or original replacement eg Shapeways or can it be a modified chassis originally from a different model?

b) I've read a bit about popsicle stick chassis' lately and would like to have a crack at one of those. Would that be acceptable?

c) I've read a bit about 2 motors in a car recently, which I think is a pretty cool idea, and I'd like to have a crack at that too. Is that acceptable?

You might've guessed I'm a stickler for the rules …. unless I can bend them so what do you think?

Popsicle sticks? Modified chassis? Shapeways / aftermarket chassis? 2 motors? Sure.

I have kicked off and the Cortona is sitting here:

I would have bet $10 that this beast was going to front at some stage.

If I put some paint on I'd get a better idea of what I was looking at and it has reacted with whatever SCX put on their Audi to drive it a few more notches up the ugliometer

I was struggling to find a suitable donor car but then I got a lead on a bit of a barn find.

Needed a bit of hand dragging her out of the container.

She's pretty rough.

No motor, rot in the pillars....   Not sure what direction this old girl will head??

.....and the Poxy Proxy was born.

 

Some interesting efforts there gents, I'm giving Wobble the early lead personally. Just be careful it doesn't start looking good.

Love the storyboard Pat. The competition is heating up. 
Hard to imagine what is going on in Wobble’s mind at the moment but, if you need to reach out brother, we’re here for you. You can get through this.

Yeah, hard to imagine, wish I knew what is lurking in there. The stiff competition are always Dave and Pat and they've got the cool side sewn up.

Dont forget the judge in the equation....he is some weird old dude from up the east coast.

People say he is pretty grumpy too.
