Really surprised to see one break there - I wouldn't have thought it could be over torqued during assembly, or that there could be any bump/jump big enough. I can can only think it was a hit from behind ... either that or it's another Tamiya bit (like Wild Willy rear suspension tube ball fittings) that suffers from zinkpest :S

Hi Jonny, the car definitely had a big rear end smash at some point. I think it accounts for the lack of rear bumper and the plate with “FS” on it is slightly bent as well.

I needed a new body for the Super Champ restoration. I contacted Antony at Tony’s Tamiya Parts and luckily they had some on order.
So the new body turned up on Wednesday.
In the back ground is the original shell, which is unpainted.
I think it’s interesting they chose not to go for the same shade of blue.
This will need painting and not just for the red roll bars to do this box art. The dark blue is definitely better.
