THIS IS THE PAGE ABOUT MY REPLICA. CLICK HERE TO READ ABOUT THE RESTORATION OF JOEL JOHNSONS ACTUAL ULTIMA FROM THE 1987 IFMAR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS IN ROMSEY.

In the summer of 2015, my "research" and replica build took a dramatic new turn, as Daniel Rowlands teamed up with Dirk Anderson (who competed for Kyosho in the '87 worlds in Romsey) and others, to restore Joel Johnsons actual world champion Ultima. Joel sent the remains of the car to Daniel, and that has given new insight into various aspects of the buggy. I will update the info about Joels car in the "Joel Johnson and Ultima Racing"-link above, when I get new info from Dan..

After getting my hands on a NIP Joel Johnson 1987 World Champs carbon chassis (Trinity) I have decided to build a replica of Joel's world champs winning Ultima. I already have most of the electronics he used, and will be collecting the missing parts from wherever I can find them.

You can read about the progress of this project by clicking on the "Project"-link, above.

If you want to read more about the Ultimas that sweeped all the silver ware at the 1987 2WD World Champs, you can click on the "Joel Johnson and the Ultima"-link, above.


Here is the original:

And here is how the replica turned out:
