Wait...selling your kids is an option instead of RC stuff?

It's easier to make another kid than another 93WCS.

I just to get a body and paint, R/C stuff has gone on the back burner a bit of late.

Small Update 8)

Thanks to Peakey I got an original rear camber plate ZD 30 for the old girl so apart from the steering parts, the chassis and hubs she is pretty much all original Yokomo parts.

ZD 30

Image

Original Yokomo part has the countersunk holes as opposed to the one I had made at Fibrelyte

Image

Fitted

Image

I also tweaked the original 870c anti roll bar so it cleared the rear tower

Image

While she was out of the attic I thought I'd complete a couple of jobs on her. The wing mounts I have which I want to keep on as I like them had imperial threads. I had a blue aluminum screws attaching them on to the shock tower which wasn't really in keeping with the build. So I re-tapped them to take a M3 screw this allowed me to use a titanium screw for a more original look.

Image

Re-tapping

Image

Done and fitted with titanium M3 screw

Image

I had an original CML protec II lying around so I decided to mount it on the old girl, which I think looks quite good and certainly makes a change from all the other WCS out there. I just need to get it painted up now. Hopefully that's not going to take me another two years......
