That would be a ~36 pitch. Can’t say it’s familiar to any cars I can think of.

I opened up a surprise find of a bunch of misc that an Ebay seller was so gracious to send my way with the last of an RC lot. I'm thinking it's very "tamiya-ish" ...clod or just misc parts ? Any ideas so I can list at least a manufacturer? Thanx

Those 4 links on the right look like the lower 4link arms to a Tamiya CC01. As well as a couple batter door/holders. I’m sure they are mostly universal but I remember them.

Thanx romulus22. Pretty much mostly cc01 stuff :D .

Anyone ID any of these carcasses of mostly elcheapo road cars. Bottom right one is very kyoshoish to me but I'm pry way off base on that. Top right seems like a pile of redcat crap I had awhile back.

Not looking to refurbish any of these but .mostly parts scavenge so if anyone can help ID any of these that would be fricken awesome so I can make some room on the floor for something more worthwhile :wink:
Thanx again

Todd,

The clean silver chassis and the same chassis with dark blue parts is Kyosho Alpha GP nitro car, most likely first generation - I think the second gen onwards was black plastics, but could be wrong.

Carbon fibre chassis looks familiar too, want to say Colt or Kyosho (or Kyosho clone), but can't quite put my finger on it.

Red one, now that's one I don't know....

The curved body mounts are also CCO1. The chrome shocks look to be for a Lunch Box, Midnight Pumpkin, etc...

I was thinking that, but didn't see the funky top-link setup they used in the front end....

Good job, @Phin !

Thanx for all the help guys!

most annoying part is last night looking thru several thousand ebay pages for kysoho, HPI, Yokomo, etc. I seen the bottom left chassis with the rear pivot ball suspension but didn't realize it until the next time I went downstairs to put an ID on the other chassis parts :oops: . Went looking for it again not to find it again :| ...fricken slowa$$ isp! Thinkin it was in the kyosho section...
