from the looks of everything, the venom has been dropped off the earth months ago. I still have many parts for mine. I will be buried with it for sure. Its my all time favorite model.

My own "hard insert" desing have arrived to a dead stop due to the lack of rubber tube producers here in Spain.

Hope Tamiya tyre caps would be available today, but they became almost impossible to find.

Clark, any info about the ones are producing your Roadies rubber will be apreciated.
