Alright, gotta ask. Do you know who did the anodizing? I want to get it reanodized and it would be cool for the people who originally did it to be a part of the restoration.

I believe it was anodizng inc, and I'm pretty sure they are still the largest one around that area. If they aren't willing, there is a place in wood village called Advanced Precision Anodizing and their purple is amazing. They are also quite affordable.

A parts lot that had some RC10 rear suspension also included these mystery items. The front steering seems like something I should use if I get the shock working or replaced, but I'd like to know where it actually belongs. The 2 pair of molded parts are also unfamiliar to me. Any thoughts?

RC12i? My RC12i had similar to RC12L front suspension.

This definitely would not be a direct installation.

Going through my tyres (Tires :P ) looking for any 2.2’s to fit onto Yokomo MX-4 wheels I came across these Trinity branded ones. They needed a bit of rejuvenation and have come up great, just not sure what they are, and what era they are from, any info would be great, cheers

Quoting my own post, but I just ordered some Schumacher Mini Spikes, and the tread pattern is very similar, the Mini Spike has a slightly rounder casing across the face of the tyre

I sometimes see a slotted hole like this added to a chassis. What is it's purpose? It doesn't make any sense to me.

Robinson adjustable toe rear arm mounts. It had a turnbuckle to adjust and required the hole to be cut for access.

I gather this is an adjustable rear toe block for the Kyosho Ultima. Does anyone have an idea of who made it?
