I'm fairly sure the Delta Eagle was released in 1982 or 83.

I'm tracking down a Delta Pan, hope to pick it up this spring!!

If I get my MRP I'll be able to go around with a Vintage Rent-A-Racer Concession!!!

See you in about 5 weeks!!!

The original Marker's were a full width pan which evolved to a narrow pan the next year. I have both.

I dug up a virgin ABS McClaren body that I never used as ABS was only good for one event till the Lexan bodies came out. I also have a fiberglass Indy style body I used in '72. I'll clean them up and get pictures. I also have 8mm film of some of the MWS races from '73 and '74. Ballenger, Fisher, Arturo, Davis, the Campbells, Scharnowski, too many to recall.

I'm looking for some Marker clutch shoes, does anyone have a pair?

This is just like the one I had, I think it was 76 or 77. I took it to the winternats in Orlando. Did they have black chassis like the 1/12th scale versions? Get a look at the front axle...speed secret?

solid rear axle? well without the front having any input into the power chain (freewheeling) you're going to have a lot of steering haha!

I would love to see photos of the McLaren and Indy body. I've been looking for some to reproduce in fiberglass, but so far haven't had any luck in either seeing them or obtaining them. Show us what you've got. CHEERZZZZ!!!!!!!!!!

I haven't achieved a high enough status to be able to post pictures, the note tells me.

If you're going to be true to the vintage formula, live axles should be the rule.

Well I guess that would depend on how "vintage" you want to go, now wouldn't it? ;-) It would really simplify the rear axle/tire problem but we still need spur gears... Back in the day, I ran them forever, never had many problems at all. I can't beleive we can't find them on the web. Stock Drive Products has all kinds but I have not been able to find what we need.

One thing is we are talking about "Vintage" cars on the "European 2WD..." thread. Most of us have and plan to run the newer "Classics" like the Motonica P8C. Some of us would rather run "Vintage" American Type, Pan cars, some both!! In order to run the Vintage with the Classic a diff would be a must, but to run a Vintage Only Class, maybe not....

I'll run either, both, or all three, if there were enough interest (and I can get to the races from South Carolina!). But the only practical class has to run cars and parts that are available and people that want to race them=Classic. imho
