There’s a number of post you need before can pictures. I’m not sure if it’s an exact number, but 15-20 seems in area.

Send them (the pics of your car in question) to either myself or Billy Kelly in a PM, then we can post them in here for you. You can even go to my profile page and email them if that's easier.

I'm pretty sure that's what I was saying in my post . . . if he sends them to either of us in a PRIVATE MESSAGE (which he can do) then we can turn around and post them in here for him.

Here's the car in question... "kinda" looks like an old Corally C4 - but not, at the same time. Thought maybe HPI, but the arms are weird.

I took a long break from RC from about '90 until '08 ...I missed this car, its interesting to look at, the spur is so high..
wonder how it will be to find parts?

If you plan to race this car, it may be easier to just get a newer/modern car.

not gonna race anymore. Just casual. It's going to be way easier and cheaper to get a new car, but the nostalgia is off the charts. I want to get this MF running
