Fusion Speed...that sounds about right. One of my buddies had it on his RC10 and I always thought it was "cool"...wouldn't you know it, all the vintage stuff I'm shopping for are pricey! Wish I would've kept my JRX2 and Optima Mid for starters...

Yeah it was Fusion Speed. I used to have one and it was pretty trick. I will have to dig around my parents basement to see if it is still kicking around....

I thought the MIP gear diff had some sort of slipper type nut/conical washer thing coming out of the diff case on the top shaft (you had to drill out the case). I had one back in the day. Nice car though, great representation of the cars of that time (ball bearing steering, lightspeed heatsink and checkpoint motors were staples around my area)

If I remember correctly, the MIP only came with the bolt on gear option.
I think you're talking about the aftermarket slipper bits made by TeamPitStop that fit the MIP, also made one for the JRX2 also.

It wasn't on the spur gear side but on the other side of the case (hence drilling a small hole in the case. Now that I think of it, it wasn't a nut, but a small allen screw with some conical washers. I believe it was to add some slip to the system (it wasn't very large in diameter). I'll try and dig up pics of it. i ran the MIP gear diff stock out of the package (it was given to me by the Canadian distributor back then to run).

Those MIP transmissions! I used to borrow one from my buddie's defunct RC10 on my RC10CE graphite. Brings back so much memory.

MIP three-gear tranny were the grand daddy of all 2WD transmission today!

Eustace Moore used to come to my local track once in a while. Anyone ever go to "The Race Place" in La Mirada area?

I have an old Kyosho Ultima II in my garage that I found at a yard sale 2 years ago. Original radio and receiver to boot. I see Speedemall posted his Ultima. Might anyone have a hook on parts for my ole' Ultima II ? Any help would be appreciated!

the best place for vintage parts is either ebay or a private owned hobby shop.They always have old stock in the back they could'nt sell back in the day.
