If a jobs not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well.

Since you intend on running it, be sure to rehydrate the nylon. Old AE nylon gets pretty brittle.

And I'd go ahead and replace the bellcranks. The original setup wasn't great when new, and it won't be any better after 30+ years. There are still several options available or you can probably 3D print the Worlds pieces.

Yes, I like my vintage electronics. And transmitters like this Airtronics MX-A really close the gap between AM equipment and modern stuff (my Magnum 2PL's and XR2i's are good too).

Got some black oxide 4-40 hardware as well. Now, if only my order from KnK would get here.

Dialed Racing - I hadn't actually had time to dig into the cars much yet. Was planning on this weekend until I found out I must work :(

Goods from Dynotech, including the Klein front arms. I went ahead and installed them because I was curious about the fit. Also seen are the Factory Works towers that I got last week and the Rival MT10 big bore shocks that I reconfigured to fit.

I went ahead and ordered 8 more receivers to max out the storage on my inexpensive radio. I was afraid they'd discontinue them all of a sudden and I'd be screwed. They're really cheap, but work well from what I've seen. It took about a month for USPS to deliver...🙄

I did the same, but in a more 'organic' way..... picked these up over the last few years, before I even got the 10 model memory transmitter!

Now, if only I had 10 runners..... come to think of it, two runners would be a shock! :oops:

I think I have a few of those rolling around in the bottom of toolboxes - FlySky? I stopped using the radio, did not like the feel or response time when racing.

Lucky you, that's usually the opposite of what happens...you usually end up with something a fraction of the size you were expecting. :lol:
