Default Crazy Vintage rc idea...

I just went all gooey eyed over a pic of a JRx2. It was my first real race car. I wish i could buy one. I wish I could buy a NEW one
Clearly that's imposible. Although Tamiya seems to find it worthwhile re-releasing old models- the hornet and the wild willy comes to mind.
Then I remembered RPM made a rc10 stealth conversion that came with a molded chassis, suspension arms etc... We're talking way way back here- probably 1990.
So i thought... Wouldn't it be great if somewhat made replicas of older designs in the same manner! You'd get a molded chassis, arms, etc, and would bolt on modern shocks/gearboxes/wheels etc...
It's probably a crazy put-this-man-in-a-padded-room idea, but still, I would love to see it happen

Sounds like a good idea to me. I would love to run my Jrx-pro again, but I am afraid to break something. If the reproduction parts were compatible it would allow people to run their older cars. again. I have been buying parts on e-bay for my Ultima too!
Brushes? We don't need no stinking brushes!!!
