Default Old school MIP tranny?

80's MIP tranny,
MIP no longer sells this product, I use to have this in my old RC10 and I've had this in my garage for ever, and was wondering what would be a good price to sell this at? Everything is complete, but it has one screw broken in the mounting hole. Would be good for replacement parts for someone who already has one. Thanks in advance. -H.A.H. halfasshuffer

I had the same one....I even remember buying it for like 90-100$

Can you extract the screw? Might be worth some money on eBay as alot of vintage stuff is always for sale there....

Thumbs up

I've got one of these mounted in a never-used A&L trailing arm and graphite chassis RC10. Probably the only part of that car that's still from the original kit is the motor plate

I miss my trailing arm style dogbone throwing RC10...I got it in a box still somewhere I hope. I think I bought it from the guy who designed it before A&L started making them commercial.

y2kgtp...you have 2 different MIP's there, one for an AE car (with bearings showing) and the other is for the Losi JRX2, I've only seen a few of the Losi versions.

where can I find an extractor kit? Is it the MIP tranny you used to have? I painted the MIP hot pink alone time ago, thought it looked cool at the time.
