Vintage MRC MRX?

Recommended Posts

HI all,

I purchased this a while back as an MRC MRX (the French Optima Mid!), it is missing a couple of parts (top deck & 2 x drive shafts), but I'm puzzled by the yellow tray bolted to the chassis as I've never seen one with this on before.  Does anyone know what this is - it sits above the lower chassis and the belt runs underneath it?  I cannot see that it is from a MRC Santana, so am at a loss!

On a seperate note, if anyone os selling a top deck or driveshafts to fit this please let me know :D

Thanks

Rob

That top deck is of a Kyosho Sonic Sports, a 1/12 onroad chassis from the 80s. It is normally black, yours i think is painted yellow....:D

Thanks @a.w.k. - that's an unusual conversion for an off-road buggy! 

I suppose I'd better remove this and start looking for some other fittings to get this road-worthy then.
