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.

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 :-)

I know this is not vintage, but hoping for potential hint on this accessory pack...
This was in a pile of other stuff, so I really have no idea how old it is - but more importantly I don't know what model it goes with??

I believe it would be from an 8th scale buggy, given the suspension pills?
However I don't think any 8th scale buggies have a servo-saver that would use that steel ring?
- I looked at the pills on my buggies and none seem to be labeled like these: 0, 25, 50.
- I have 8th scale buggies by: Associated, Arrma, Tekno, and Kyosho...


Anybody know what this is from??

MIP won't reissue the 410 Legend kit, but they will make a buttsink. So what is a buttsink?
