KRYPTONITE KAMARO FUNNY CAR

RC Car Action - - READERS RIDES - MATT TOPAS › KAPOLEI, HI

The pol­ished look of Matt’s clas­sic Ca­maro funny car hides a tremen­dous amount of cus­tom work to get it there. The body is a Lexan Parma Ca­maro that he care­fully nar­rowed to get the proper pro­por­tions, and then he sprayed it in sil­ver blue metal­lic enamel. That is hinged over a cus­tom chas­sis Matt built us­ing an alu­minum base and brass frame rails, giv­ing the car a 13-inch wheel­base with just a 7-inch wide rear end. The front end is sourced from a Tamiya trac­tor and the rear end uses an In­t­egy gear­box with Traxxas Ban­dit drive shafts and sus­pen­sion arms. Tires are Traxxas too: Mag­num skin­nies up front and slicks in back. Power comes from a Cas­tle 4600kv brush­less sys­tem, but its hid­den by a 3D-printed Hemi mo­tor from Dark Dragon Wing and has a cus­tom-built set of zoomie ex­haust pipes. The driver is a Tamiya piece with a few ex­tra scratch-built scale ac­ces­sories.
