That gear cover looks like a replacement for the Hirobo cars like the 44b. Scoot Mike might need that

Nice ID! Didn't think about it being for a non-MRP car but you might be right. Looks a lot like the gear cover on the Zerda pictured on rc-car-museum.de.

That gear cover does look like a Zerda one , might be worth trying to make a mold off it , I'm sure a few would sell , I'd take one for a start !
If a jobs not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well.

Yeah it is most likely for the Zerda. Before Gomachv mentioned the Zerda, I had forgotten MRP made the Kong...which was a Zerda monster truck...so it makes sense.

I already talked to mytimac about doing repops but he's backed up, and not doing new molds yet. I haven't asked TBG since I don't really need any of their repro bodies at the moment. Also I read something about them being off eBay now, and trying to set up their own site, but I'm not really sure.

Edit: On a side note I also figured out that the motor plate looks to be for some version of the MRP/Jomac Class D Racing Car (maybe the Datsun Baja ATV). It's a little hard to recognize because it's got some extra material behind the motor mount.

Can anyone identify this RC vehicle. It's 1/8 scale, and very similar to a Kyosho Inferno.

Thanks Mark

This was found in a 10T. Looks like stealth mounting pattern. this back idler gear and bushings were in it. It's obviously an MIP, but I thought the SP-1 was the MIP stealth offering. What do I have here?

That’s a change box. Was designed to change the ratio of the stealth to a 2.61
