So, a member here listed his WCS parts lot to help pay for a small country, and another member and I unknowingly battled it out. Last April.

We worked it out afterward to split the lot up, but I forgot about the auction after paying for all of it, minus the shipping, I was reminded of it a couple of weeks ago :| and now.....here it is!!! :mrgreen:

Big thanks to Pedro for offering the lot up! Big apologies to Hyeong for forgetting all about this stuff!

It was great reading this thread. I really love the attention to detail. Wonderful stuff. If I were to dip my toe into the 4WD waters again I think a 93WCS would be amazing. However knowing how much I spent on a relatively simple RC10, I doubt I can justify spending double that again (on twice the number of super rare parts in a Yokomo, plus spares). Very cool to see yours though :)

plus I think I have extra parts from my build, like some aluminum fasteners, arm mounts and arms etc.....just need to dig some!

I also found the 24k plated Yokomo battery bars that were on Masami's car (like 6 months ago) :oops: .....

And a NIP uncut and un-painted Yokomo Works 91 or 93 lightweight shell and undertray......

And Derbydan found and sent (out of the blue!) The KO Propo decal for the underside of the rear wing!


I missed my deadline for the build because of school, I have a ton of stuff to do still- including replication of masami logo decals, and tracking down a Kose heatsink.set (in blue) for the KO Propo CX-12 esc... But, Jake is building his CNC......so maybe LOL

Dude you live!!!

Good to see you back in action.

Keep watching the CNC thread since I will be updating it as I go.

It would be nice to see you get this one going again, super sweet build.

It's even better having you back state-side. 8) I have wanted to comment in the CNC thread, but honestly...it's way over my head :lol:

So along with the chassis came a genuine WCS rear bulkhead,

-until this point I really had no idea what one actually was since this car started as a 94' YZ10, and pages and pages (and years) back I had machined the ears off a NIP 870c rear bulkhead. It worked, and I didn't know what the difference was anyway :lol:

So to do the full replica I have to hand grind the rear portion of the bulkhead away as Masami did- but I couldn't bring myself to do this to a new, actual WCS part :oops: So the rear bulkhead that I did years ago came off, and I corrected it (lowered the underside on the bulkhead by 2mm by hand with a mill bastard file), and cleaned up the sides.

My hand is sore so later tonight I'll hand grind the rear of the unit

Do you have a picture of this one? I might have one (if I can find it). Is it the one in blue with diagonal fins?
