Nevermind, it's the Team Edition. It's a black pan with B stamp on it. The front arm seems a bit longer and it came with stealth transmission.

if its a buggy with the B stamp, they will fit,but the front A arms will not look like the original,also there is a slight diffence in the rear A arms, the X that goes across the top part, ud have to look at them to see the difference. i might have a set of white a arms ill be posting in the BST . pm me

so are you trying to make the buggy all white nylon parts then?

The gold pan will be for display, so I would like it to have all white nylon parts.

The team edition (black pan) will be my runner. I want to grab all the nicer hop ups from the gold pan. I wonder if that makes sense. Still reading on how to use modern wheels and tires for front and rear. I believe for rear I need the Klein arm + losi hub + b44 rear cvd + some bearings + some plate/washer. The front, I'm confused so I'm still reading and absorbing the wealth of information.

I can't help but add some Team Associated Blue to it :)

And if you are wondering, my painting skill isn't that good. I got the body like that :lol:

Please preserve those tires, or offer them to me, I will gladly exchange them for a few sets of NIB modern tires.

How can I go on preserving these tires?

I'm planning on converting the chassis to run modern tires anyways, these tires will either go in storage, fs, or back on display for the gold tub

They are Edinger tires, Asso_man will give his left nut for them! If you sell or trade them to him, ask for his right nut as well! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Asso_man is a good guy to deal with, trade with him, he will be fair to you!

I'm rebuilding the gold tub now with my left over white parts, but I forgot how the steering assembly goes on. I am pretty sure it's a MIP steering. I find it odd that the plate that connects the two bellcranks are done via screws and there's no bearing for them?

There should be a small brass or copper shim that is sandwiched between the rack and bellcrank
