Some European brushed motor goodness and one American I'd been looking for.

That's a nice pair of motors too. They don't show up in that condition very often. The endbells look really clean.

Little smorgasbord today. Some aluminum wheels and tires for my MIP SRB build, an awesome complete 5-link suspension kit (from Battletrak) for my Losi JRX_ build, and bearings and SS rods to be cut down to shafts for my AE Funny Car build.

Great post day! Most everything is Kyosho Raider related, save one Hilux part. I went on the bay looking for all the Kyosho parts I needed for a recent Turbo Raider purchase I made, and those parts showed up for the most part, but while searching, I ran into a complete Raider Pro that I thought was a pretty good price for a complete rig and the seller was asking super cheap shipping. I put it on my watchlist, and the seller offered me 20% off within hours, so that was a done deal. The rest of the parts are a RD-1 (chassis tub), RD-2 (chassis parts), RD-4 (susp mount that had been modified on mine), and a RD-10 (MSC) which I actually ordered two of due to watchlist deals and I will need on the new Raider Pro, so win win. The last random part today was a repop rear bumper for my Hilux, made by pmg828 from S Korea (same guy that does the wheels). My original order for this piece made it all the way from S Korea to N Carolina without issue, and then it was turned over to the USPS, who then quickly lost it and it never made it to me. After it stalling for two weeks, I contacted pmg828, who, without question, got another part sent out pronto and the replacement was here in less than two weeks.

Nice pile of mid-life NIP Schumacher parts.... not the oldest, but not the latest either.

Some nice parts for my Mission builds, and some interesting nitro parts and upgrades.

Particularly pleased about the two complete 'quick-fill' fuel tanks, which will be added to the Nitro 10 / Daytona pile.

Shame I don't have an XT / XTR / Menace to suit the big cooling head, complete pull start, and other nice parts... but they're all nice additions to the collection.

Not sure why I picked up a Cat 2000 bumper.... ;)

All this stuff came in the mail today. weedeater string is for my track so it counts as rc related i think. :mrgreen:
20230905_143953.jpg
Then I saw a fresh listing for an old lot of rc stuff on fb marketplace. Well after buying the stuff above I really wasn't in a position to make a reasonable offer. But I messaged him anyway and through out an offer of 60 bucks, cash in hand today. He accepted to my surprise. Best part of the lot was found in the box. Old racer battery test dot matrix print outs and 2 racer log books where he recorded what he and everyone else in every class did as far as times and such. Best part. Found the name of a friend whom recently passed away listed in the outlaw truck class which he raced at the very same track. Also a local paper from Fort Knox Ky from 1989 that has an article and full front page photo about rc racing at that track. I will take the time in the picture to get some good photos of the stuff.

Got a bundle of motors, mostly Kyosho. Got a Yokomo based 36° super stock (older, small tab). Kyosho Le Mans 240S, 18X2 Mega, 34°Super Stock, and a Le Mans 360ST.
Screenshot_20230905_150705_Gallery.jpg
I was already looking for a 18X2 Mega and another Kyosho 550 (didn't care which exact one). The 240S and another clean Super Stock sealed the deal.

Other than missing the decal, the Yoko motor is identical to a Bud's motor that I have. Both are 36°, have small tabs, and "SP" cans.

That is pretty weird. I just started working on a motor decal for a Sonic 2 "T", which was 11x3. It will, as per my style, look pretty good from a foot away, but not up close. Per the rules, I am not offering to sell or give you one, I am just making mention that I may have extras sitting around if you would like to contact me to discuss them. :D
