That doesn't look bad at all.

all it needs is a good dusting, and to be re-assembled...

I just purchased a set of XX cr front axle wideners.

like I said before, these cars are still quite capable to run with the newer buggies.

The Kyosho RB5 bodies fit pretty good, it'll just take some creative cutting.

and Horizonhobby.com sells the XX bodies for $17 or so plus shipping.
