I have been looking for an older car to update for a while, the trouble is (in my opinion) you need to have one that you can use a spool in (with replaceable outputs) and a gear diff.

The only gear diff for a shaft car that i can find is one by SPecR for the Tamiya TB03 so i have been slowly collecting parts for that car, they are still readily available and you can also use the same suspenion components as the 417...so I don't know if its really considered an 'old car'....

I also have some Yokomo SD parts lying about so might do something with those too. Someone was asking about SD parts on here, to get all the SD/CGM parts you need to go to Japan (RC Race & Drift or Banzai) as the SD is still used as a drift car, about 99% of all the parts are still available...plus some new parts that the latest drift car uses.

A Tamiya 414M2 would be my ideal 'old car', but they are tough to find...anyone have one they want shifting
Exotek races with an HPI Pro4 and is kicking butt and taking names... The car is just wicked fast.
