    Here is a little something i did today. I need to top up on some paint stock tomorrow, so i can finish the painting. When i do i'll put up bot mode pics.

    Update - Ive added 2 bot mode pics, as requested by many. Ive also modded the wheels forward slightly. Im toying with the idea of the extra exhausts tomorrow, so more pics to come.

    I had a spare set of Mirage wheels, which i scratch built 'axls' for, and drilled them into the existing frame work, quite easy really, im suprised no-one has done the same before.

    That's badass! You stoel the idea right out from under like 10 other customizers. It might have been done before but I've never seen it and certainly not on this SE Dragstrip. Kudos!

    ...can you hear that? Everyone else is starting up there drills to emulate you. I know I am. Should get mine today or monday and my extra mirage will be wheelless in no time

    Excellent mod! It's one so many people have done but without the G1 accurate extra wheels. You went the extra mile! Can't wait to see the robot mode.

    Now that's the way SE Dragstrip should have been from the start.

    Oh, no it wasn't repainted, that's how the figure came, deco-wise.
    The wheel-mod looks great though, especially with some red paint on those wheels to make them match.

    That looks totally awesome. Gives me a good idea of how mine will look when I'm done, haha.

    Yup I actually just watched the video before I commented earlier today. Looks pretty cool but I like the formula 1 style more
