  1. Hi all, the « Sanada Replica Community » has concluded that he used two different bodies, blue and turquoise.
  2. Hello Adam, Hope you are doing well. Could you scan the Official Bangkok program you bought for us please ? Thanks a lot in anticipation. alex
  3. I am trying to help and contribute as much as you have been helping me, Adam. Thanks a lot, again. And I am sincerely looking forward to see the alloy air filter mount you planned to fabricate for our two replicas. The search for the company name of the sticker is very exciting on his own. But personally I believe a replica has to be as close from the original as it can possibly be (obviously only based on available articles, pictures and testimonies). That is the reason why I have and will have only one replica project at a time, till I get everything complete. A "RC life's project" for me, yes I do admit. I catched that friendly virus ;)
  4. March 1990 I Think. Large articles published in French magazines in April 1990.
  5. As you may know, I have also been working on a Sanada Replica. I had many contacts with the writer/photographer of the French articles showing Super Sport winning car. He does not have original pictures cause it belongs to the magazine... which does not exist anymore. I tried to contact the owner of the magazine at that time, no reply. Heard the material may be with the Belgium printing company of the magazine... who knows. Then I thought about other ways. 1- try to get in touch with other Mugen Official drivers, especially the second place driver. 2- try to find a way to contact the bangkok track. But apparently does not exist anymore. I think the biggest chance we have would be to find a media in Thailand to publish the sticker picture and ask who knows about the company. Maybe via the Thailand RC federation ? Facebook is a very powerful tool in that respect. What surprises me is the fact that apparently we cannot find any other article about the race from other countries than France ?! A quest to find other articles from that period is a very promising route also. Who can help us in this ?
  6. Hi Adam, Could you please scan with high resolution the Sanwa stickers please ? As I believe i will never be able to find original ones like yours. thank you very much in anticipation alex
  7. Hi Adam, could you please scan with high resolution the Sanwa stickers please ? thank you very much in anticipation alex
  8. None of the Bangkok pictures clearly allow identification of front brake system, due to air filter hiding this area of the car. But this does not mean it was not already used then ? And again, Christophe Rolland articles do mention several times usage of front break system ?
  9. You are correct, it is Sanada’s car, with red neck. But it is non sense wearing Machine A stickers and using Machine 1 radio... 😉 How far with the custom aluminum air filter bend Adam ? Thanks Alex
  10. Sure this car was Sanada’s one ? He used the number 1 at some stage ?
  11. Hi Adam, just a quick one. Sanada-san had a Machine 1 remote and not a Machine A. This has also an impact on the sticker. Bye, Alex 😉
  12. Another question I had : are front wheels identical to rear ones, or smaller ?
  13. Hi Adam, Good to see your project moving forward nicely ;) Not clearly shown on any available picture from that race as far as i remember, but it is written in all articles about Bangkok 1990 and later on in articles about Super Sport version the fact that Mugen official cars in Bangkok were using new front brake system.
