Cheers Flo. I’m relieved, this looked like a potentially easy resto, so I’m glad it’s all come together. Fixing the body on really did bring if all together.

I really like the super champ. I never tried mine but it's too nice. And I'm fan of the srb.

I knew a couple of things weren’t as good as they could be on the Super Champ.
One being the springs on the front arms. They are just knackered.

 

I had a few spares, so today I put some stronger springs on.
I also replaced the wheel locking nuts for some new shiny ones.

And I’ve ordered a new grey bumper to finish this off, back to the original.

The parts destined for the spares boxes.

 

And the parts destined for the bin. I’m just glad the parts being binned are on the slim side.

Today fitted a ball diff to the Super Champ.
In all seriousness this probably won’t get run much, but you never know. I’ve got a couple of these ball diffs, one was going to go in a Sand Scorcher runner. As this was probably supposed to be the best of the SRB’s it only seemed right to put the diff in the Super Champ.
I think it needs a bit of a tinker, I’m not totally convinced I’ve got it set up right.

 

And last but not least the grey bumper went on. Which finishes the car off.
Body work still to do. I think I might start on the driver and small bits like the lights next weekend. Just to get myself back into painting.
