Talked to the guy I got the stuff from, and he had to ask his boss which he got it from. Turns out the guy is a machinist and it started life as a kyosho slingshot but almost all the parts are homemade and its missing the main chassis and alot of other things .. so its a mutt ..

Found this on the back of my shelf. Don't remember where/when I got it but this is how I got it with some Team Cobra parts.

I found this link https://www.rcscrapyard.net/bolink.htm#Racetech2
It looks like a Bolink LTO chassis but the Bolink pics all have 6 battery slots where this has 5.

Body question 1
Got this 1:12 body in a lot... was supposed to be 1:10, but it's obviously 1:12. *sigh* :roll:

Anyway, does anyone remember an MR2 body being sold back in the day for 1:12? Only possible indicator on the entire body of manufacturer is a tiny decal saying "You-G" - did they make 1:12 lexan bodies?
MR2_1.jpg
MR2_2.jpg
MR2_3.jpg

Detail of the name decals..... both 'MR2' and 'You-G' seem to be the same font...

Any info appreciated...

Body question no.2
In the same lot as the MR2, I got these two 1:8 bodies, that I have no clue on.
8 bodies 1.jpg
First one is big and white, I'm thinking ABS like Mardave make their bodies... underneath, it has "Matich S4" written in pen...
8 bodies 2.jpg
Second one is some weird 70's style body..... I'm thinking Wacky Races.... or the stuff people used to run back then.
8 bodies 3.jpg
As usual, any info appreciated :D

Got these in an eBay purchase, they are cheap chrome plated steel, but curious if anyone has an idea what they might have came of.

Thanks :mrgreen:

Hi.

Can anyone identify the manufacturer of these alloy wheel covers for Tamiyas Ford Ranger/Subaru Brat models?
They are old stock but the seller lost the packaging forever ago.

I’ve seen them on models before so they are out there.

Thanks in advance.
