[PHOTOS] Pantera Evo

Post by laneboysrc on Sat 23 Aug 2014 - 12:33

A few months ago I went to Tai Seng to browse a bit for RC stuff. In their clothes rack where they display the body shells I found a blast from the past: DeTomaso Pantera.

I am not sure if those cars are known at all in Singapore; they were reasonably famous in Europe in the late Eighties and early Nineties. DeTomaso was one of the Italian supercar makers, right in the ranks of Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati.
They were never as popular as the other brands, but the Pantera was certainly a looker.
I often went during lunch break in school to the nearby showroom, which often had a Pantera on display. Sometimes a car was parked outside on the curb, allowing for a closer look. Wonderful memories...

The HPI shell was very cheap, only SGD 42. Like most HPI shells the rear area is a separte piece that you have to glue to the main shell after painting. In contrast to the Tamiya shells the HPI shells therefore do not have mold seperation lines.

We painted the car with Tamiya PS-52 Champagne Gold Aluminum. It is a very translucent paint and required to be backed with black.

The shell is designed for 200 mm wide chassis. We had to use rims with very wide offset, 5 mm on the front and 9 mm on the rear, to make them look decent.

We are using a Tamiya TB Evolution chassis for this car. This one is used and came from Japan, we got it from an auction for a TT01 money.

The chassis came with a 23T Team Atlas motor. We stripped the chassis, cleaned it up and rebuilt it. The TB Evo was launched in year 2000. It was certainly an expensive kit back than, equipped with alu shocks, CVDs, carbon parts etc, all standard. The drive train is derived from the TB01 shaft driven touring car chassis. The rear gearbox features a ball differential, which you can still get today in the form of the TT01 ball diff option. The front uses a one-way system.

Thanks for reading and looking. More pictures can be found in our Flickr album at
