I've wanted to build this for a while now... I've never found a set of those RCPS turnbuckles, hope you have better luck! Looking forward to the results!

I studied every square inch of this car in that RCCA article when I was a kid. I practically wore out that magazine. Back in the day I was going to convert my original RC10 to Cliff's spec, but had no funds. :)

Anyway, I've created some high resolution pictures from that issue of RCCA and posted them on Flickr, click on the images to access the high resolution goodness.
