Background: I won a Yokomo 180SX street version shell in a raffle at a meet recently. Funnily enough, I'm the furthest thing from a S-Chassis' fan. I struggle to find them attractive or interesting, less so the sheer number of and poor-renditions of them as well. It's a polarising thing, I understand, but s-chassis' are just... unlikable for me. The first thing I said when I saw the prize as 'Well, this is one raffle I hope not to win..."... nek minut >.> first thing i've ever won in a raffle too >.>
Anyhow, the 180SX is probably my least disliked of all s-chassis variants, but still I was struggling to see the light as to what I could do with it. I thought about selling it, giving it back, painting it for the club etc etc. I settled my dislikes when I recognised the capacity of what could be achieved with such a shell.
The first step was the AddictionXABC Rocket Bunny Rodeo Special V2 for 180SX. I mean, wow. No half-assed mods, no half-assed silly wheel combos, no half-assed aero. The thing is crazy cool, packing a diffuser, beefed up fenders, complex front splitter and canards.
I was sold.
So I decided I'd go all-out as much as I could. Engine bay, check. Interior, check. Fenderless kit, check. big wing, check etcetcetcetcetc
