wow! i cant belive the interest lately in these cars! Its just a shame that the class is truely dead no one here in OZ has any of these and say i should just get rid of them. NO WAY! my 4 stroker is the only car ive owned that i really appreciate and wouldnt sell it for anything!

GPM foams are the best tyres for these cars. problem is they chunck too easy so i tend to cut them down a quarter and put a layer of super glue around the eadge to keep them in together, works very well. also, the GPM foams last for many races!

now that ive seen this thread again, i will post up some better pics of my 4 stroker (see page 1) and another car which is for sale. have interest here in but if it falls through, id be happy to sell it to one luck fanatic here. id like to see it go to a good home, not just thrashed. lots of spares, lots of new spares, gears, tires, electrics etc.. (no radio though).

im definitely book marking this page!

@ 1smexyAP2, good to see a girl that has an interest in classics!

LOL I love these things. Especially love the reaction I would get from my husband when I side swipe a curb of hit something (accidental not purposely).

one of my old supertens (RIP) hit a light post in a carpark at full noise. EPIC FAIL!

.....it wasnt a pretty sight.

lesson learnt - always use a fail safe!!!!

What happened to you is why mine is staying a shelf queen.

if i was there i would've done 1 of two things. 1st i might just stand there with my jaw dropped cause its your car, 2nd i might come up to you and hug you, telling you that life goes on . If i was the driver it would be different. 1st i would look at you and do my little cute/sexy winking, 2nd i would put slowly put remote on the ground. While you're in shock I would slowly walk away and disappear

well my eyes welted up! the car was a write off but a lot was salvaged and transferred to a new car! worked out well in the end though, if it didn't happen, i wouldn't have done the 4 stroke conversion!

Well, there is nothing wrong with shelf queens, some of you have seen my HPI SN, and trust me, it's never going to see the road again.

If you have 4 or 5 Super 10s, there getting rid of one isn't going to kill you. I will take some pics of my super 10 this weekend. Still debating on letting it go
