Default Vintage question - Is the B2 dead?

I see guys posting about old RC10 racing and wondered if there is any interest in old B2 buggy?

I have anice one with a boatload of NIP parts, and wanted know if it's gold, garbage, or something else.

Any input from the vintage crowd is greatly appreciated.

Dave

The b2/b3 cars havnt quite hit that vintage tag like the gold pan cars have. Some still race them and do well. It wont have a ton of cash value but a real cool piece of r/c for sure.

I was just looking at my B2 this past weekend. I need a rear hub and a new lid for it and I am going to shelf it.

I did love that car though!

My daughter raced mine a couple weeks ago, still has a 20 x 3 Litespeed motor in it LOL. I ran a few laps with it. Still a good car and a lot of fun to drive.

Default Im still racing my Team Car

Still works well. I added B4 front caster blocks and steering blocks and a B4 topshaft in the transmission. Converted to brushless with a 8.5t
