Design Assets:
This is a model of the amazing & controversial Karpik Special from 1982. Brad Hulings & Gerard Karpik dominated almost every race with this sled that was designed by "King Karpik".

This model is my 1993 MXZ with a new hood, bellypan & scale racers.

Like Karpik & Hulings I only built two of these.
