My 2nd 12th back in 85' when I was 13 and I still have the chassis.

Wasn't Comp Plus related to Hot Tracks? The Huntington beach carpet track?

Boy was that an exciting time

My first advanced 12th was the delta spyder, one model after your's

They (delta) we're always nice on the phone and had a family vibe. Very down to earth they we're

I have always wanted to do a Delta shirt, I had a Delta sticker on the back of my Futaba gold box transmitter, but the back is missing. If someone emailed me a scan or a good pic of the the original rectangle, I can usually replicate it spot on. I've wanted to do a few for myself and I assume some other old timers like myself would like some also.

As for the Trinity, since Trinity is still "active" as a company in the rc world, Earnie may have an issue with an old school monster t.

If any of you guys know who still makes GTP, Can am etc in 1/10 scale it would help a lot. I know Protoform has a really good one and Mcallister has a few. Maybe a UK supplier or asian since they still race them. Oh, My SP12 is making a comeback. I still like the o rings. We are also starting a sportsman 1/12 class here in N. GA. Vintage 1/12 prefered but all are welcome. 540 silvercans only and control tires w/ no bare spots on the wheels and no visible glue. You can't run them down to the rim like the fast guys do.

Well here is my first baby (well its twin brother, as I chopped my chassis in two many years ago) my original chassis did not have the electronic speedo, just the orange forward/break only wiper.

MRP and Bolink used the same moulded chassis for their own cars, sometimes grey sometimes black.

and the original batteries (still working, took full charge...) and 35t motor.

There is a bad connection in speedo part that I have to sort out but otherwise car is running fine.

this is actually a scanned picture of my original chassis back then (yep, no digital in those days)

Went on racing Ccar and SPCcar from Schumacher in mid to end 80's, with Firefly and Speedmaster electronic speedos in heat shrink and not boxes...aah these were the days...

Here is a link to some nice different chassis of yesteryears...

Sorry, it is in German, but the pictures speak for themselves.

And while I am at it, here is the new body (not vintage sorry)

The first body is a RM-1 and the second one is a Buick Grand National.

I have one like this ! Ive been wanting to restore it for AGES but never got the courage to hunt the missing parts. Any idea where I could find front steering knuckles and the white plastic bushings on which the rear axle rotates ?

électriquement toi-même ! haha

Salut,
good luck, not many parts around but every so often they pop up on Ebay, with our American friends on this forum, maybe they can help, I would love to find a grey moulded chassis for my other car (if it is black I won't cry)
