Thanks everyone for checking out the builds and restorations. Most of the vintage parts come from searching ebay. as for my next build project ... it will involve something new in box that is not a Tamiya...



Made some more storage room for all the buggies.







Finally found a new set of rear tires that came on the (Item#58036) Audi Quattro Rally, (Item#58037) Opel Ascona 400, and the (Item#58040) Lancia Rally to mount onto the rear of the Sand Scorpion.





Also picked up a pair of Thorp Dirt Burners "Side Rails" #4416 and mounted them onto the SS.







Scored some new RCH wheel covers for a future project.



Bear Hawk has been completed and is ready to run except for a BEC + receiver & or BEC receiver.











Thanks again for taking a look. - Arco

The car pictured above has been highly modified from the original Classic Kit re-release and includes CE front & rear shock towers, the wider CE front arms, in-line steering blocks, aluminum axles, CE adjustable steel turnbuckles, full ball bearings (including bearings supporting the outdrives), Worlds steering bell cranks (w/ ball bearings), a Cadillac motor and Pro-Line wheel covers.

Since completion the back half of the wheels were drilled to match the chrome covers and Rit dyed Black. They have also been wrapped with the Pro-Line Cadillac smooth front tires and a set of Tamiya Holiday Buggy rears and then attached using Rouge Elements alloy knock-offs. The second kit is still NIB and sealed.


Thanks for taking a look. - Arco

Gold tub RC10 was my first hobby grade RC, My parents didn thave a lot of money when we were growing up and when they gave it to me on Christmas I was blown away. Now as an adult I know that they had to make a heck of a sacrifices to get me that and I do appreciate them for it. I will own another one of these days. thanks for the pics!

@RCJEEPBUILDER
You are welcome. Had to share the RC-10. This is my first one ever. It was a fun build. I have one more that is still sealed NIB. I built this one around the "Cadillac" theme and period. It was a crash course in the Gold Tub cars.

My dad bartered for my first hobby grade RC and I too thank him for the sacrifices that he made to get the ball rolling for me as a kid. First trip to the LHS was also something to remember... the good ol' days. Thanks for sharing your experience. Brings back memories of my own there and a few images of what the future may hold for me and my own son.
