Hi all! Today I’d like to try something new, a product review. Recently both R2hobbies and Eagle Racing introduced a stealth body mount set with a design very similar to the discontinued Waru body mount set. These things have caused quite a hype, and its no surprise they are sold out almost all the time. Luckilly for me the silver version wasn’t sold out yet, so I ordered a set to test for you.

You might have read things about us going to build a teambody, and you also might have spotted the TWS 86 logo posted earlier. Well, combine the 2 and what do you get? No, wrong. You get an AE86 teambody. Almost everyone has theirs in right now so we can all start the build. Here’s mine, and all the parts I already had collected for it.
It is the cheap R2hobbies copy of the HPI Toyota AE86 Levin. Mine will be a european one as it will get a left-hand-drive Tamiya driverset. It will be rolling on 1/10th scale SSR Formula Mesh wheels. I’m going to keep the design a secret for now, but keep watching as I’ll show it in part 2.
