Late RC1 yes. Early RC1 and RC2 was seperate engine mount and rear axle mount.

ID is for a 3/8" (9.5mm) axle.
If someone ever finds such spur, this is for the very rare Taurus car. Found a photo showing such spur some month ago. So I have a spur and a set of wheels for the Taurus, maybe not really enough for starting a project but who knows. Maybe in 30 years I will have enough parts ... :lol:

My newest purchase. A little incomplete but a really clean base to start with.

Hi,

Maybe :-). I bought 2 deltas of the same guy, and the last one on auction. Nice cars, but hard to find parts.

The chassis and engine/axle mount goes to an Associated RC1. See my last post right above yours.

How old must "vintage" be? I have a new, non assembled Mugen MRX-2 whose chassis was signed by Adrien Bertin (who won the worlds in that very model in 1999) - does this count? :mrgreen:

also happen to have a NIB Mugen Sting, too... the car that forced the other manufacturers to up their game in order to make the category a bit more user-friendly... yes, I'm looking at you, Picco, BMT, Serpent's... :D

My god there is so much awesomeness on this thread :shock:

Going back through this thread on page 8 Stibing, I think those knuckles you have are the same as what's on that Titan car. Maybe someone else can confirm.
