I am cheating this thread a little bit, as I am aware of what this is, but I want to know about one part. :D

So far, this is the only HT RC10 I have seen with this nose tube mount on it. Based on other parts of this particular car, it would be safe to guess that this could be a one-off custom piece, but is it? Is this a custom piece or was this part of a kit?

Either way, I want to replicate the idea for a build, but just need to know if I need to be exact as to actually match something, or just do a custom piece myself.

I build RCs like people would have done back in the '90s ..................................... if they had 3D printers.

It's time to stand up to the bully. Support the companies that support the industry, not the ones that tear it down. Say no to Traxxas

Thanks Jeff!! Yea, um, I am guessing that is going to be impossible to find, so "tribute" head on protector is probably in order. :D

During the vintage event on Saturday, one of the local guys who looked at my Samurai and my Optimas gave me two diffs he thought to be Optima, as he thought it would be of better use with me...

But I don't think they are coming from an Optima...

While I have some ideas for the right one (possibly MRC), I have no idea for the front diff with balls, as it doesn't remind me anything... If you have an idea, that would be great (and confirmation for my assumption on the rear diff would be great as well)...
I buy kits to build and ru(i)n them :-)
