    Are those Kyosho? Staggard? I held off on buying those silver ones and missed out. I think I have a way to mount the FW04 wheels to TGX's abd HPI's. Just waiting for some wheel nuts to arrive.

    Wow!!!!

    A car body that I painted I don't know when showed up in RC Car Action. That is crazy. I haven't looked in a Car Action mag in year's. So I had to buy this copy and I see they have changed to matte pages.

    This was a true surprise seeing it in the mag!

    I was surprised when I found out as well since I don't get the magazine anymore. This body has always been my favorite of Contenders and very cool to see a older discontinued road car get some national press.

    Maybe this is old news but I mounted a set to my TGX. Basically you need a set of 14mm hexes from a traxxas http://www.ebay.com/itm/Traxxas-E-Ma...MAAOSwuMFUdsNP and then these http://www.ebay.com/itm/122014097609...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Use the nuts and trim down the length a bit as needed. I also ground down the hex side as it is a bit large. These are 8mm heads so they are a bit larger. The pins that go with these hexes are larger in diameter so you will need to drill out the pin holes in you axles to make them fit. I had several extras as these parts are common on old TA02 Tamiya chassis. I'll try to get some pics up at some point. I Have not run them on a working car but they should be fine.

    Just when you thought you didn't need another one, I scored a SN on eBay that I will turn into a runner. It was too good to pass up, newly built with a two speed for 100.00.

    Now I just need to strip off what I don't want and make it street ready.

    Nice score Contender $100 bucks is a steal! Nice to see you back on the road again the 2 speed is worth that $ alone.

    I think I saw one of Contenders Super's with disc's somewhere?? No experience with the 1/8 & 1/9 scale for these...only 1/5 FG and 1/10 scale.

    They do look awesome if you can find a set to make them work.... put a set on my Sprint.

    I always enjoyed that Lambo. I think it's time to paint a few bodies before it gets cold. Hope everyone is doing fine.

    Not an urgent request, but trying to see if anyone has a new racer fuel tank they are willing to part with for a decent price. (The version without a primer)?
