If I had to guess, somebody altered the wheelbase to fit a particular body.

Hey Bob,
What is the status of converting your old videos to digital?

Being busy is better than having nothing to do, mostly....

Remember, idle hands are the devils playthings, which is why i recommend people spin allen wrench

Nothing takes up a precious hour of free time like a few crunchy diffs.

Looks like. It really s a nicely made piece. Suppose I'll have to order some bits from RJSpeed to get it back to stock. Also going to see if I can wrap the tires in rubber to make them "legal". (...also got a spare, slightly cracked set.) Could be a hoot as a silver can GT car.

I have a few videos - Not in great shape. 1984 Futaba Grand Prix in Costa Mesa. 1985 IFMAR Worlds Mod A Main (won by Gil Losi ) , A 1985 Region six Champ race at SRS in Scottsdale Arizona. Quite a few still pictures from 1974-76 , Briggs Cunningham track , San Jose Rams Club and from Phoenix. A picture or two of John Thorp, Joe Sullivan (major RC distributor at the time) Gary Grossenbacher. Bruce Fields (inventor of the Scorpion 1/8th Pan car - first Pan car with a radio tray - everyone else was running radio boxes at the time.

Bob, are you still interested in some R/C History? I have loads to contribute, from the late 60's to the early 70's.

Love this thread almost ruined two loads of concrete reading all the posts. don't have a lot of history to add but this has brought back a lot of childhood memories. I grew up around the rc tracks in Az since the mid 80's. Some of my greatest memories involve rc. I still miss it and keep kicking around the idea of racing again. Hey j.bee I'm interested in the rc history, even if i may of heard it before. It never gets old I can read it over and over again.
