That's cool. It would be even cooler if there was a vintage race class for these in the states. They've been doing it for awhile now in Japan.

I've got a Tamiya Sand Scorcher. Far too rare and expensive to run these days.

There have been a few sets of Associateds on eBay over the past couple of weeks. They turn up quite often, actually. The TRC tires are a little tougher to acquire in good shape or NOS. I've managed to acquire one set in a few years of searching, so your best bet is to pick on the Associateds or check the closeout bins at various Hobby Shops.

I have some old stuff kicking around, it would help me though if you could post a picture that hopefully you have laying around or have found on a website you might have visited. Then I can be sure what your looking for. It will take considerable effort to get them which is why I don't want to look for them and not be what you want. My stuff goes all the way back to 12E days, but I have alot of mid to late 80's stuff.

I know I told you once before Sean that I had one before, a 1/12 that is. Forgot what ever happened to that car.

I am looking for a RPS Yokomo Dogfighter However, and also the mono shock front end from associated would be sweet.
