Thanks for all your great comments.

This parts comes from an old US Associated team driver.

He didn't raced the 1995 IFMAR World but be in touch of the pre-production B2 for the ROAR national just after the World.
When the production transmission was available this temporary parts had no more interrest.

I'm in touch of them by chance, after discussing with another famous AE team driver already supported in 1995.
He had nothing left but have one or two friends able to had it left.
He showned a big part of my collection from my facebook profil to the guy and tell him what I'm looking for.

Just few days after I got an Email from the guy, and one week after they are in my mail box 8)

Yes Matt have his car, but infortunely in spares, he have to rebuild it.

This is close to be the last step of the project.

These pictures are awesome. Thanks Cedric. Hard to believe it was nearly 17 years ago. As for the original car, I do have it unasembled and missing a few parts. I raced the car for several months after the World Champs. The body was never again raced but the car was. I was unable to reassemble the car due to a few missing parts: Rear suspension mounts and some thing else I can't remember. The car now sits at a friends house who also collects vintage cars and he is working on getting completed. There were very few of these cars produced and I beleive they went into production immediately after the World Champs so many parts are difficult to find. Nice job! MF
