Impulseman's Optima runner

A very nice Optima runner, fitted with an Optima pro body, but painted like a box art optima. The shocks are Mini Inferno's optional shocks (Kyosho). You can check this thread to see the restoration work. Very good job, Impulseman!

Tribute to Marwan 3: LWB Optima Mids Duo

Here's my 3rd tribute to Marwan's repro work.
The Turbo Optima Mid Special (without the bulb) and the Optima Mid Custom, the two racy Long Wheel Base Mids. These are my preferred LWB bodies.

The wheels are Option House Chrome, tires are square block Hard type for the T Mid Sp and classic OT-66 style pin spike for the Mid Custom. The T Mid Sp has Pargu2000's aluminium wheels, and they're superb!

The T Mid Sp has my custom made Carbon shock stays.

Many thanks to Marwan, who provided the bodies and the decals.
