    I remember this being for sale and there was a lot od argument over who bid what
    If I recall the guy that bought it put it up for sale straight way with around 5k mark up

    Mac,
    Would be really good to see further pics. I was after one of these when RS Automotive were originally selling them.
    A much better design than some of the other kits like the Balham one that used a Masetro as a donor

    Re: My Ford RS200 replica , with rally livery

    Fueled by my huge passoin for all things group B, I've always fancied one of these!
    Is it possible to convert the rear body section to hinge from the top?? I believe these kits are made using the original moulds, so it must be feasable..?

    Yes you hinge it the other way its alot of work but can be done , Some kits were made from original moulds but mine isnt one of those kits , this one is a
    Mercury motorsport car still very close to the real deal ...

    That looks spot on, the dimensions are on the button.

    Very impressive and as already said, want one!

    How does it handle? Have you ever had it on the track?

    I did indeed buy a chassis and body from Bill.


    It then took me 5 years of research and modifications to complete the car.


    Extensive modifications to the body panels.


    Front and Rear Suspension changes.


    Renault UN1 gearbox changed to Audi transaxle.


    Original dash constructed and fitted in place of the Sierra one.

    Very, very, interested to learn more about your build. I have been putting money aside for about two years now with the goal of buying a 4WD RS Motorsport RS200 replica. I am still unsure of the exact cost (but I guess that is very spec dependent), but my biggest questions are; how well does it all go together and, perhaps more crucially, how does it drive?
