Default Help identifying 2 vintage on-roads

From the 80's. One is obviously some type of RC10 chain drive hybrid with Andy's racing arms. Need more info though.

Any help is appreciated.

The electric car looks more scratch. Original Delta shocks, andy's arms. Maybe a trackmaster transmission. I remember those BBS adapters to run onroad wheels on a rc 10. That wasbthe good old days!! Some of the stuff dirt oval guys came up with back in the day was amazing.

The rc10 looks like it has a reworked Team Pit Stop chain drive. Other car looks homemade.

Top one looks to be a Bolink chassis that has been modified for gas.

Second one looks to be a hybrid. The front end is RC10, rear hubs/ arms looks to be RC10, battery holder/ antenna holder are RC10. From what I remember my buddy had bought a aftermarket front end just like that with a wider stance and a chassis that looks like that. I don't remember who made it but it sounds like Andy's from post above? If it was Andy's I know they made a graphite chassis like the one above. It looks like someone grinded out the battery slots added holes etc. I don't remember the chassis being as rounded in the middle but maybe that's something the person did to it after they bought it. Rear shock tower looks home made.

The one with the chain drive looks like either a Custom Works Dominator or another Dirt oval car. I think it was called the SRP...something?? Can't remember. But, it's an over 20 year old car.

The Electric one is an RC-10 with Andy's Arms and a Track Master transmission converted to chain likely with Dominator parts or Team Pitstop Chain drive pieces. Looks like most of my garage of cars in the 80's
