I ordered two Citroens from a french ebay seller. The red C4 from Loeb, and the new DS3. The guy didn't send me the red one, instead he sent me this yellow one. I never saw this one before for sale, it looks cool, so i won't exchange it, I will order Loeb's C4 again from another vendor this time :)

Yes, I do. I was going to use the DS3 to create a 2011 Version of Loeb's WRC car but yesterday I found on the internet that auldey is making it already and I ordered one :)

How do you fit an Auldey body to a mini-z?

Wow Alex, DS3 & DS3 Loeb 2011 livery !
Good find!
Do you know the weelbase for the DS3?
You can run the C4 without having to paint it, you will find out it is pretty tough!

Wildthing: you can check here

to see how it can be mounted

Fovea3d,

The yellow C4 and the sport DS3, I bought them from ebay France, seller named FX Model RC. The DS3 WRC was from a English Seller, dont remember the name now, I will measure the Wheelbase and let you know.

Finally a friend asked me to order an Auldey DS3 WRC 2011 for him.
I bought two and mounted mine on a AWD chassis in 94mm. Very easy mount, a perfect fit I would say. The body is lighter than the Auldey C4.

cr@p... that looks really great... :D
can you please show us what you did under the body? (specifically body mounts) thanks again for sharing... :D

Sure :)

Hope it helps.
I use foam (kind of like RCP material) as spacers for the side mounts and for the front mount. It gives a soft mount that protects greatly the chassis.
Oh and superglue literally welds the foam mounts to the body, they will hold unless you force rip them.

The DS3 body is perfect for racing, flexible and light, it also has large wheel arches that dont interfere with the tires.

Superglue = HotGlue Sticks ? That you apply w/ the gun? Let me know.

Thanks again!

Hi Alex,

No, Superglue is the name in Europe for Crazyglue (Cyanoacrylate).

Oh...ok! Thanks again for the pictures it is super nice!

Still on the WRC note, today I received the Toyota Celica Turbo 4WD No.7 WRC1993 Juha Kankkunen:

It is Supreme!!! I will get another one before it becomes an unicorn like the ford focus WRC Bodies :)

Forgot to ask, for the side body mounts, from which car you used ?

Fovea3d

I bought these on the pictures a long time ago from I-Waver. Don't know if they still have them.
Or you can use mounts for Atomic VDS bodies, they are also sold separately.
Reminds me that I need another dozen :)

Beautifull Celica body BTW. Another unicorn that lost its corn: Shelby Cobra will be re-released soon, with fine hand polish.

Unfortunately TinyRC does not have them.
But you can google Atomic VDS body mounts.

EDIT
Advice on the side mounts: just sand them flat the side where they are glued to the spacers (erase the reinforcements).
