  1. I love this car it was produced by Playtron around 1982 and has an electric self starter system that can be also activated through the Radio. Playtron made 2 models the Mercedes 500K (mainly for Europe) and the Viva Arizona (Sand Rail Buggy for U.S. market). You can see both of them in my Showroom. Bye WWD
  2. Great! This is very kind of you! Very interesting the possibility to tighten the diff through the wheel nut. Thanks a lot. WWD
  3. You got a great one! You really made my day! This would be of great help! Both the Scans would be very interesting for me, Manual (in particular for Spares part #) and what you have of decals! Don't worry about time take all the time you need. Bye WWD
  4. This would be very interesting also for me. Bye WWD
  5. Here the close UP to the 540 mod....., not so happy about it but i have to deal with it. If i can't find a gear set and put the 380 back on i have to find a 540 motor with high turns that mimic the same performance. Any suggestion 50T more or less.....? Bye WWD
  6. Here we go a couple of pics to share. Bye. WWD
  7. Thanks for your posts. Considering them i need to be very patient and take my time. Luckly it is in a condition that can be a good runner easily and then with time will try to find and add the missing parts... Bye. WWD
  8. Hello, I just got one of these beauties, that i'll try to restore at best and run. Anyone of you have or can give me a link to a Spare parts numbers (codes) sheet for this model? Online i found the manual but there are no parts numbers inside and can't find anyting more. What i miss are: - Front number plate and fender - Gear set The reason for gears is because the previous owner modified it to 540 motor and to do so changed a little the gears logic simplyfing it and since i'd like to have it back to 380 motor size i've the gears set in my wish list. Any suggestion will be appreciated. Bye WWD
  9. Hello to everyone, i going to start a Vintage Sand Rover resto and i'm trying to find, if exist, a Gear Cover for it. I remberer they were available in the past on the "bay" made in Polycarbonate but i also saw here some custom made. Due to time issue i'm no more in the RC Biz as i was in the past and i'm not updated on what is availabe, considering also all the 3D printing experts that sell items on Shapeways. From a first quick search i couldn't find anything, if someone can point me in the right direction or help me i'd really appreciate. Thanks for your time, WWD
