Unloved little copper colored buddy. Never lived up to your neighbor on my display, the mighty C6 ZR1. I purchased you new and I was stoked. Time passed and potential trades fell short too often. I must now say goodb......oh hellz yeah!!.... you have an LS2!! Just what the 1:18 Ferrari FF needs! *chainsaw sound effect*
Dang it, It seems to be more of a top engine bay cover than an individual mow-tah. None the less, lets get scavenging!
I’ll hold these bit for later.
At this point I remembered a 1:18 Pagani Zonda I got in a super cheap lot deal I believe. Along with it, a rad Ford GT90 and a Saleen S7. That particular Zonda had a suspension issue.
It sat way too low and didn’t roll at all.
I diagnosed it as a possible lack of springs. Though it wasn’t a Maisto brand like the Vette, I tore it down to see if maybe this model in fact had spring suspension.
Welp, there’s your problem. Someone in the past did indeed remove the springs front and back. I was fortunate to find out that the Maisto spring fit whatever brand of diecast the Pagani is.
Sweet, all I gotta do now is put it all back togeth.....err....oh boy.
Seems like the steering column is brokafied. Time to tear it up a little more. *chainsaw noises*
Seems like the donor Corvette steering wheel is longer than the Pagani’s. Makes sense since one is FR and the other is MR.
Dang, I really wanted to see the C6 steering wheel in the Pagani lol. Oh well, time to
measure twice and cut once eyeball it, cut and JB Weld the steering column.
LOL heck yeah! Perfect!
I put the Pagani back together and she was rolling and turning perfect.
Next project is to fit the LS2 into that Ferrari FF.
