Weird, maybe they deleted their initial post and reposted it again after you answered. If not, I have no idea. :?:

I don't know what they are but the gear looks like it's got the same no. of teeth and pitch as the diff gear from a Tamiya Avante/Egress.

Don't know what the white gear in the middle of the top row is but I can confirm the left one is from a Traxxas Bullet, and the aluminum one is from a MIP SP-1. The two black gears are out of a Kyosho Nitro Tracker and likely so is the outdrive cup.
Image
Top row starting from the left looks like a front t-bar support off a Hyperdrive H10RS pan car, followed by a top plate and t-bar brace from a Speed Merchant 1/12 pan car. The carbon part right next to the Yoke tower might be a bumper from a 1/12 car...either Speed Merchant again or CRC. Don't recognize the other two parts.

Looks like a motor AYK would've used in the early 80's.

Li'l help? :mrgreen:

These parts came in a lot that had mostly Tamiya parts (Avante, Mad Bull & Fighter, Supershot), but also had a few Ayk Buffalo, and Kyosho 4Runner/Pathfinder bits.

I figured out the dogbones with the two rings in the center, and the thrust bearing parts are from an Astute/King Cab.

I bought this graphite chassis plate from a fellow racer back in the late '80's but I never asked him who made it -- or maybe he told me and I forgot.
It is not woven graphite nor did it come with mounting holes for the Stealth transmission (I've recently drilled those myself) so I think it's a relatively early chassis.
Anyone know who made this?

There were a lot of "straight graphite" chassis back then. The original JRX2 comes to mind as a good example. Is that edge photo showing a sandwich of another material between layers of graphite? There was one company that sold a lot of chassis like that, maybe DA, with a wood core...??

Duratrax and Composite Craft come to mind. Can't remember the 3rd chassis maker that is usually with those two. But like Ascot mentioned there were a bunch. I'd assume that duratrax outnumber alot of them because they were one of the cheaper brands...

I'm pretty sure it's a Duratrax chassis. I believe you can tell by the number of screw holes along the side of the chassis...Duratrax had 6 on each side, while CC/Parma had 4 (might've been 5) on each side.

How about this t-bar....anyone recognize it? RC10L2/L3 pod parts fit on it and it looks like a sunken t-bar used on some F1 cars. Has three holes in the back that look like they could be used to mount a wing.

I think I have such wheels also at my wheels box, or at least had some.
They are made for Yokomo but I don´t think Keil sold them. I know of several Keil wheels but not these. Not perfectly sure but my bet would be on GM-Racing because they had wheels for CAT 2000 which look different but the overall make is very similar. You can notice this when having a look at the backside.

Never have seen this brace before but usually most of these anodized aluminium parts were made by GPM. If it feels lightweight and soft aluminium it' s this company
