Hi, I’m currently look for a period speed controller to try and keep it as 80s as possible. She will be a runner and I would love to find a vintage race series to enter.
I guess the only thing I’m conscious of is breaking parts that are becoming difficult to find, and I don’t really want to have to use later legendary release parts.

Thanks all. @scollins I also have a TF-2 which I’m working on at the moment, I love this chassis!
The colour is ‘175LB sky blue’ by Custom Colour which is a rattle can from my local hobby shop.

Very nice, Lancia’s were always the best looking cars in rallying. Looking forward to seeing the final build. ??

The 1985 original belt drive conversion didn’t come with a slipper clutch, in fact the first belt drive conversions weren’t even by Kyosho, this is my original belt drive conversion not the later Legendary version in the re-realise cars. This was my old racing chassis which I drove for about 3 years at Chingford Car Club and in the BRCA Nationals.

The second chassis is a chain drive original

Hi, you’re right the gearbox did need a small modification, unfortunately I don’t have an image.
On the original car the servo mounted under the radio plate on a mounting plate as you say, it was servo taped and cable tied in place. I’m trying to keep my as original as possible, so I haven’t used any re-release parts, so I have servo taped mine steering servo in, it’s not likely to go racing so right now this is good enough. If you can find one without the mounting wings cut off, the Futaba MC112b is perfect for this vintage of car. I also like the way it mounts,

If I can help at all, please feel free to PM me.

@beefmuffin, yes I thought it was a bit more interesting than a box of parts.

Difficult car to restore but a great end result.
