Vintage Race Video - RRC Series, '91 4WD Oswestry Rd.5 A-Final

I was sent this video clip a couple of weeks ago and have just managed to upload it on to YouTube. I never thought I would ever get to see this race again so was massively chuffed to discover this footage had been taken, focusing on the late Matthew Hodgson and his Tomy Intruder who qualified on pol...

What time period are you placing this buggy in?
While the car has several modern elements, I'd place the overall theme in the late 80's. I'd definitely say that its pre-Team Car.

Re: dinglem's daily drivers

The Mardave Meteor. This car was the focus of a series of mag articles over in the UK where a famous driver by the name of Greg Halliday gradually modified it in an attempt to compete with the RC10. This was the cheapest British car on the market, with the kit costing just 49.99pounds. Spare parts c...

Re: RC10Talk community build

1989 IFMAR Worlds Sydney, Australia VHS

Hi All,

I've uploaded the 1989 Ifmar worlds held in Australia. I downloaded this many years ago and it seemed to disappear off the internet. Luckily I found a copy on an old backup I had.
Cheers

Re: Vintage Nylon Parts Durability

Right, boiling the parts for 5-10 minutes works well, or you can throw in a container of room temp water for however long you want. This applies to associated parts and some Traxxas parts. DO NOT boil yokomo bulkhead caps or Traxxas trans halves. Throwing in room temp water for longer is safer if yo...
