Not yet complete Houge trailing arm RC10 with MIP planetary gear diff, Checkpoint modified motor and Kyosho gold shocks.





Fully restored original JRX2 - Race Prep stock motor, Team Smooth 7-cell SCRs, Novak electronics and original body and wing.







Maybe a virtually new RC10 Graphite Team Car? Remember Wimpy motors and SCRC 1700s?





How about an original YZ10?





Another blast from the past—the original bad boy 4wd buggy—an RPS (Losi) Yokomo Dogfighter SE. Soon to receive a Delta graphite chassis, Checkpoint mod motor, 1200SC Sanyos and original Novak electronics.







A work in progress... original Schumacher short wheelbase CAT. I have everything for the car except the original body and upper belt cover.

a 7 cell hump side by side pack, classic red sanyo cells, these pics are awesome!

Not opposed at all. I would be happy but I just don't want to have to go out and buy new wheels and all sorts of other parts to change over. Its not a shelf queen but I'm trying to spend as little on it so I can keep running my newer stuff.

Would you happen to know a part number??

thanks for the help,
Mark

Default Parts found, NIP

Hi guys,

I found some parts of my old Yokomo Super Dog Fighter and Works '93.
NIP. A front Magnesium Bulkhead suited for both cars and steering c-hubs for a Works '93 model. Anyone interested?

Direct replacement part, no need to change wheels, these have the classic 1/4" tapered axles...

Would you guys consider the Traxxas SRT and Trx3 as vintage?

If you send me the SRT & TCP, I will gladly add them to my vintage racers lineup and ensure they get run

you can get bodys at blue groove racing in canada and Kamtec in the uk.

We are starting our 2nd vintage series in the southeast usa soon.
All vintage cars have to run the 540 silvercan motor and the venom 3000 battery in 4 classes

2wd buggy
4wd buggy
stadium truck
Sportsman. this is a class for all of the old plastic like the hornet, Raider, and other entry level cars chassis cars.
For those that have vintage but prefer bl motors they have their own class but not for points

Vintage racing rules!

Sweet car! Hey, what tires are those? Kyosho's, right? That's what I'm running on the car in my Avatar but I can't remember what they were called anymore. The original fuzzie clay track tire.

His "Stealth" car was the sh*t! It used to beat the pants out of everyone at the major races... His driving had some part also

What I would really love to see would be RC10CE vs. Jrx-Pros. Another great classic was the Jrx-Pro SE which pretty much revolutionized 2WD buggies. The Jrx-Pro SE was the buggy that every 2WD buggies model after, with its molded chassis (when others were using aluminum and graphite) and slipper clutch... It was also a handsome buggy to boot...

I loved my RC10CE Graphite when I used to run it, but just hated the damn transmission. I've since replaced it with the Stealth transmission (the first one, the white-cased one with the casing that hugs the gears).

Still, even the stealth transmission was a rip off of MIP's transmission, which was THE hopup to get when everyone else (Losi, AE) were using transmission that had more then 4 gears in the tranny...

MIP's 3-gear design is what EVERY 2WD buggy and truck uses. His design was so practical, you got your outdrive/diff gear, an idler, and the top shaft. Still, the old AE transmission wasn't too shabby if you used bearings. I had bushings in mine (back then, you can get ball bearing option or bushing option). There were so many RCCA articles on how to build RC10's transmission for a super-smooth operation. These articles covered stuff like milling out the bearing slots to accept larger diameter bearings to reduce the RPM for rattle and vibration. I'd shed a tear of nostalgia if someone can post a pic of their vintage Jrx or RC10 with and MIP transmission bolted on... Hell, I'll shed two tears if someone can post one of the "chain" drive transmission that were offered in the small ads inside the RCCA issues of yesteryear!
Tom, I think the chain drive transmission was the A&L conversion if memory serves me. They were loud and I don't think they had a diff?

Love your cars, especially the JRX2 with the 5-link. Those were awesome! 1987 is right about when I started racing RC cars - so many great racing memories.

A&L was a belt drive. The chain drive was from Team Pit Stop. It had a ball diff.
