I raced a MRP they were a plastic chassis car, they worked good till Associated came out with 12E I think that's what it was called.
I raced dirt oval with Gary Keyes 2 years ago we were racing Dirt Oval in the Best in the West dirt oval series.
Joel was't 7 in 80. I have the 84 Futaba GP on tape. He's at least 17 and his younger brother is around 12.
