If there is ever a classic 1/12 class, I have a TRC Pro 12 to run but I would have to find two hole rims or go to the trouble of converting it to three hole. I still have 6 cell 1700 SCE saddle packs!
The Ranch was one of the best tracks ever !
12th scale stock with Andy's Castrol Jag, drafting down the back straight of the 8th scale layout, it was so choice

What two hole rims do you need. Please be specific because I have many rims and tires that I could send you. It might take a few weeks, I'll have to dig them out but I should be able to help.

I thought there was only one kind of two hole wheels for 1/12. What is the difference among the two hole rear wheels? Is it a difference in offset?

Classic 1/12th-img00386-20110420-0551-1-.jpg

this is my brother John from cleveland in 1987. We loved using the toj bodies and the lotecs. I have more pics coming as soon as I scan them, including our osella bodied 12i's and a march 83g bolink body.

Bill-The car is actually a RaceCo Hybrid. It used a Delta rear pod mounted to the RaceCo bottom plate/t-bar and chassis, originally with an AE front end, then with their own design front end as shown in the pic

Oh I like this. I still have my sp12 and it runs great. A delta with the red hot trick chassis, old 12l's Bolink bandido. A bud of mine still has a fantom that is mint. I wish I could find a Plazma. And the Tamiya 1/12 I have here somewhere is also complete but I'm sure the tires have turned to dust by now.

Anyone have a delta chassis they don't need. It wants to get out and put the smack on some of these johnny come lately rides.

Doug, Thanks again for the goodies.

Steve, I know your digging this.
