Pavidis Ed in da house!

Post by Lonestar »

Right - now it's here... I spent a good part of the day drooling at it and taking (crappy) pics - here are a few. the car was roughly cleaned, it'll have to go through more TLC and will be put under a controlled-atmosphere vacuum clutch in the bedroom for me to look at every time I go to bed :D

The only thing that bugs me is some of the turnbuckles... they look really cheap but the previous owner guarantees me that they're original... And then there's a bit of corrosion on the UJ's :?

Other than that, it has only seen some very very light track use it seems (and the diffs are already shot, but Joe will hook me up for a smooth rebuild soon - thanks Joe!)

Here are the pix :

Those rear links are Kyosho if I am not mistaken- I thought all the Pavidis cars had the square RCPS syle Ti link-

Nice BTW :wink:

Hi there :) I got a few sets of white rims, the ribbed ones too, but no blacks indeed as standard. The stock yokomo tires that were done just for the Yatabe are missing too but I will survive...

I need to get my hands on some pics of Pavidis' car, I have them at home... He was probably using lunsford's anyways!

Pavidis used the Yokomo titanium turnbuckles, as the RCPS and not the lunsford ;)

Thanks for the input gentlemen... I think searching for stock turnbuckles will be Mission Impossible, but I'll keep looking... in the meantime, I'll check out my stock of lunsfords as these one really are ugly, the rear ones at least.

Well

Would you love to build a 1995 WC Pavidis replica or a stock Pavidis production car ?
Mark raced Yokomo titanium, and I apologize the production car comes with poor steel production.

I want a car that looks good on the shelf ;) I am not as dedicated as you and prp in building true "replicas", so I usually settle for sub-optimality as long as I have pleasure taking the car off the shelf once in a while and drool while manipulating it between two wrenching sessions on the modern rides... the current 'buckles on the car look utter sh!t, whether they're stock or not, they'll have to go ;)

On the other hand, if you feel like painting me one of Jay's pavidis re-pops with Pavidis' paint scheme, I'd be happy to mandate you for the work :)

a+
