I won this car today from a German gentleman named Klaus. Tamland67 put me on to this car and radio. I bought another one from Hong Kong, but this one is painted in box art and in super shape. It has a very strange radio set-up, and is 27 mhz, which makes it legal in the states. Now I am really excited about this one getting here. It will take time from Europe, but the wait should be worth it. It cost me 102.00 Euros, which I consider a bargain considering it's shape and all aluminum construction. These are the before pictures and who knows, maybe the after pictures. Thanks again to Tamland67. Update; Note the homemade chassis in pic. 2. It was an early attempt at stiffining the chassis. Crude, but not bad for a kid. Everything works, which is the main thing, and although the pictures hide a lot of flaws, the body is about twice the thickness of a new one and really needs a re-spray. It came with the box and the paperwork for the car and the radio. Between this one and the other one I have with a perfect chassis, it should make a really unique piece of late seventies early eighties radio control. It also came with a box of small parts and gears and a new set of rear tires. New pictures when shes presentable!



Check out this transmitter!

Nothing Mossey! Wrong click and no way to remove it. Seems to be several others that made the same mistake!

Probably when the other couple of hundred are, too many cars not near enough time! The radio has a steering upgrade from stick to wheel and works really well, also came with the stick and gimbals.
