My JRX2 I recently put together. May not be perfect but as a few neat period goodies like RPM front bulkhead, A&L steering and Power clutch.
I really need a better place to take pictures of these cars.

Posting up my RC10 mid motor conversion from Tekin, with the active camber link activated. In addition it is also sporting a Schumacher SACS (active caster) front suspension kit made for RC10.

Back in the days mid motor was rather exotic, but became the golden standard on high grip tracks in the 2000’s.

Real fun runner for vintage racing on modern tracks!

The pictures are showing how the car sits today, but it was built years ago and I posted a summary of the build here:

This is my Shorty bucking Bronco. Its an Axial SCX-10 rebuilt as a short wheel base truck in order to accommodate the short wheelbase of the beautiful Tamiya Bronco body. A STRC short wheelbase chassis kit was used along with STRC aluminum shock mounts. Short RC4WD aluminum shocks where used to get the right ride height. Because of their short length, two DIG-unit CVD's were attached to the tranny to prevent binding or bottoming due to the short wheelbase. All the axle links had to be swapped out for short ones and some even had to be trimmed down to custom lengths to get the axle geometry correct. a Novak 18T brush-less motor/ESC setup was used to power this little truck. Axial lights fitted to the Tamiya body. RC4WD steel front and rear bumpers mounted along with an AJS Machine rear chassis stiffener and trailer hitch mounted as well. Aluminum beadlock wheels and RC4WD Dick Cepek tires mounted as well. A RC4WD Warn winch with remote was placed on the front bumper. Hardened Axial gears were installed in a set of BoomRacing metal axle housings. This truck was a long time in the making but the end result was spectacular. The truck is a blast to crawl around with and a joy to watch.

JOSH STRAUSS TRIBUTE BUILD.
This is a tribute build to a old friend of mine, Derek, and also Thumb's best friend growing up. (He won't speak to any of us now, he is a rich judge and lawyer) He was a rich kid and had this car prepared like you see here back in 1989. We all wanted it so bad but had no money. Derek pestered him so badly, he finally just gave it to him. Sadly it ended in a dumpster long before ebay was around. Here i have redid this to replicate that car from our golden days rc. Prolly my favorite car in our collection.

This is my 2nd LosiXX.
Fairly rough to begin with but I think it turned out really nice.
Since my build thread, https://www.rc10talk.com/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=47030&hilit=losixx, I added a Speed Works Pole Position motor, a Tekin TSC 410 S2 ESC and a Futaba FP-R112JE receiver.
My favorite mod on this car was resurrecting the motor plate with a blue anodizing accent.

I am going to call this one a "quiet bump." Just enough to get it to the top of the new posts, but really actually hope no one pays attention to it. :D

edit: this font is hilariously small! I may use it more just for the funny!

Great builds all around, but my oval fetish(among others)made the Track Master an easy choice. 8)

Always looking for new and interesting ways to waste money.
