Oh really????
I plan on building an RC10 just like how we raced 'em on-road in AK back in the 80's....lowered on foams, gold pans drilled full of holes :shock: and all....those collars and arms sure would come in handy. :mrgreen:

Nice car there for a mildly "stock" resto.......

I am thinking of doing a road racer too, around here we tie rod'ed the front end and put the front shocks on the back (grasshoppers, hornets, and RC10's) I think it would be cool to go back, but are old style bolink foams and McAllister bodies still available?

I haven't seen a McAllister body in a LONG time.....but "old school" Bolink foams on the white rims come up often. :D

For the Mcallister Bodies the link is http://www.mcallisterracing.com/racing/ they are still in business and quite helpful from what I have heard here.

soaked them in some orange "go-jo" type hand cleaner with some pumace in it and scrubbed with an old toothbrush, then same with some regular hand soap, then after a good rinse I soaked them in oxyclean and scrubbed them again, and finally re washed with hand soap to get the oxyclean residue off (don't think I really needed the hand soap, it was more to get the oxyclean, and orange cleaner smell off my own hands) they still have a light tint to them but no more than what I'd expect to see even on a new kit, and espically after 25 years or so...

I've got the CRP collars shown in the first pics that I won't use and they do fit the associated shocks, I may consider selling them if there is any interest in them, they are in great shape, also may consider trades for a chassis or parts.
