Michael Koebbe's name is probably the first you'll see whenever it comes to getting REAL speed out of the versatile WL Toys range of cars. After much evolution we are seeing him pull ahead in holding the fastest speed records for these cars with some well thought out and precisely executed builds. Further than that he is a top bloke and willing to help people at all levels of the games on the various Facebook Groups including the QuadifyRC WL toys group. More recently he has starting selling his hand made parts ranging from purpose built spoilers like he kindly supplied for my own 124019 speed run build plus hardened driveshafts, GPS holders, custom mod 1 spools and more. Enough gushing from me, let take a look at his record breaking 124019 in a little more detail, a car that as of writing has been up as fast as 118mph

That is the single most beautiful thing I have ever seen. Wow. That body is sublime.

Yeah, what's hard to tell is the amount this body has been modified to make it fit - it is really large IRL.
