View Full Version : Retro R/C

After reading some of these posts and talking to friends, you guys should really put out a "retro" car action mag. Kinda in the same spirit as the Touring car edition mags. Everyone seems to be digging out the old stuff and trying to get it running again. It would also be nice to know what happened to some of those aftermarket companies like CRP, AJ's (Twinn-K), Twister, Thorp, A&L, etc.

I saw at rc10.com that they are selling old (original) rc10 parts DIRT CHEAP.... not enough to make a whole new/old rc10... but if you already have an old one, and want to freshen it up a bit, you could do it dirt cheap right now.....
