Interesting. And that first one looks just like the ones in the car with that black square on top. I guess they are Novaks, cool.

Wow I was way off

I guess I am to young for this. But still think it will be very cool when it is completed! Good luck on the rebuild, and keep us posted

Digging the Tamiya to AE connector adapter for the battery.

If I tell you that I charged a 1200mh saddle pack lately, took the charge no problem and it is just shy of 30 years old

Still have to run it in my 12th scale...

Just remember that the crystals can break down as well so you may only have to replace those to get it going.

Replace it with what, all the crystals left in the free world are that old. ...lol...

and Rick isn't gonna have any, all the cheater old dudes were on 40mhz.

I'm not saying that I know anybody that raced 40mhz, or that I had a lot of 40mhz stuff. I'm just saying, I didn't get radio hit very often for a few years there. 30 dudes trying to get on the driver stand.. you walk up and grab "any" frequency pin that happened to be left, "lookee that, my frequency is the only one left, how lucky am I!" So I'm told.

Good news there is that there was only about a 6 minute wait while the other 1/12th guys dumped like dogs.

I can't recall the make or brand, that was nearly 30 years ago. But it was pretty pricy.

Cool flashback!
