tires look like the proline razor backs. Not a big tamiya guy but maybe like a hornet or a frog wheel?

Well they were on a super champ I recently inquired, Just don't look like the common "open spoked" style Tamiya wheels that were run on various models. And yes those are some old razorbacks.

They should be Proline 1.5" wheels for tamiya cars. Same as used by Jay Halsey on his 85 rc10.

BBS style wheels which I received some years ago, but never found which car they go for. Could be 1/10 or 1/8 scale.
Diameter is around 51.5 mm, wide is 31 mm fronts and 50 mm rears. Bearing size seems 10mm fronts. I thought maybe for one of the MRP electric cars but not sure. Someone have an idea?

Got a pile of old AE parts and there's a few I can't nail down the i.d. on. The pile was a mix of RC200, RC300 and RC500 parts with some early 1/12 parts thrown in. I got most of it sorted and figured out, but can't seem to confirm what these parts are for. :?

I also came up with these Trinity king pins. No idea what they fit after searching the web everywhere I could think of.

Ok, I found a parts list to verify the AE onroad parts above. I don't know why I couldn't find it last night. :oops: I added a pic of the Trinity kingpins also. Might make it easier to i.d. :oops:

I believe the top diff is for a kyosho model, I just modified a pair of diff hubs for Jeremy that looked identical. I think thorp would be a split hub design with three screws. see this info:
https://www.rc10talk.com/viewtopic.php?f=82&t=43787

the white gear diff below that looks like a traxxas design.

the U shaped black shock tower is yokomo 870c

The diff does look very similar to the one in the topic you shared. However, it appears that one allows the removal of the drive cups; the one I have the drive cups are one piece with the outdrives/axles. Maybe a running change? Thanks for your reply!

Also found this motor. I figured with the manufacturer name on the end, it'd be easy to find info. But that is not the case. Its a 540 size. :?:

Morning all, trying to figure out what this truck or buggy is. Hours of googling and I’m not seeing anything with that front shock setup and chassis bracing.

Anybody have any idea?
