Best part, no question.

Look what I found on the top shelf in the garage. I remember I couldn't decide which version to do - close or open cockpit, close or open rear fender. Now if they re-release the Schkee and the Shadow, I'll be all set.

Great idea Bob, wished there were more realistic bodies available, maybe you can start a new trend. I have an original 12i with a trashed intrepid body that needs one of these. Great run down.

Check this video, worth watching. at 8:00 is a Schkee!

8:45, Dan Gurney sounds like Barack Obama. Close your eyes and think Obama. lulz.


I think I've watched it 4 times now. Schkee had the onboard camera.

+ YouTube Video

Bob, that Schkee would look wicked in 1/10 scale. I think Parma did a 235mm Schkee as well?

I was using a Schkee back in 1981 with my first Schumacher XL 1/12th car. The body was from SG as it was more easy for us to find in shops but did look very close.
Last year I found exactly this SG Schkee again and now also the Schumacher XL car.

I'll ask him, out of curiosity.

Problem is, and this is why nobody pursues this. They just don't sell well. Anybody other than us would discontinue it. We've had a week of hard publicity, sold 4. That's not altogether that important to me. it's the cool and the legacy of it. Frankly, I wanted one. I have a lot of pull around here when it comes to projects like this. I'd say we have a limited lifetime supply of them now. And that's totally cool with me, and makes me happy.

I've got 3 others that are here now. the one, is going to take a bit of explaining, because people hear the name and think it's something else. I'm building a vintage car just for this body. I'm agonizing over the build, selecting the right cells, everything. It's tough. I can't exactly place the initial production for RC use. so I'm gonna build it around a perhaps 1987-1988 era 235mm car. It was raced in the late 70's in full size. and 235mm race cars didn't really take off as a class until about 86-87, and more less went wild about 1988, so I'm shooting for around there. there would have been no real reason to make 235mm race bodys for a class we didn't have yet, for cars that weren't out yet. Well, other than the original Predator and the Bolink roundtracker, followed by eliminator. Everything else happened in about 88.

I sent 2 of the 1/10 cars to forum user Tallyrc. He gets to be the first guy to see them.

When he gets them, I'll post more information. He's in Florida though. Not likely to get them until Monday.
