The stock car is brand new, dragster and sprint have barely a mark on them.

Bodies are always the hardest part for me. So hard to find a good survivor. When I do find them, sometimes they are more than the entire car- like the funnycar body I have coming. :shock:

No, the drag chassis is the one from a previous win a while back. This clear body had a homemade plexiglass chassis that was junk. Tires were homemade from airplane tires. Really it ended up being just the body, but still worth it.

Oh yeah....shoot me your address and I will send you the bird dog

Great day on craigslist today! Found a Panther 12 and a Pro Panther from a local racer. Pretty much how they were retired in the late 80's. I had an Oscella body from another member, now I'm down to just needing the street rod to finish out the 1/10 Pro Panther collection 8)

I didn't realize I hadn't updated the pics of the sprinter- I have a front wing now! Thanks for the offer tho! I am looking for a stock Parma top wing but I have an associated wing for it currently

a friend ( Kjell ) in the club ran that pro 12 those are very light we all others ran rc12l/lw and corally...

anyway we gathered up and went to swedish nationals the car ran fine but he was strugelling with radio interfireance

so patrik sugested that he should borrow all his stuff and put in the car since he had no problem with radio interfirence so hi did and won his final ...

all good all fine almost since it was a job in heist he forgot to check the weight of the car and after inspection it was to light so he was disqualified.

it turned to be like this ,since the car was so light Kjell didnt bother to get the lightest radio gear but Patrik had since his car was so heavy.

Back then we ran 6 cells and minimum weight was 880 gram.

must have been around -92/93
