Hope you get a sale. Itís a tough market in Australia for used RC, even though every single one of mine would have cost that much at least once the parts preventing running were replaced.

Wow! What a cool thread, my first nitro RC was a spider mk2, I swapped for aquarium related items I no longer needed, that was in 2006!

The car needed work and parts, luckily around 2 years later I bought a parts lot off eBay, 2 broken cars and loads of alloy parts chassis ect.

I managed to build 2 cars out of the 3, both run, both have different hop ups.

I have some pictures and videos, I can get photos of spare parts of your interested.

Anyhow here are some pictures off my phone if theyíll upload.

I just googled and saw your thread come up, now Iíve joined the forum

I really enjoyed this thread as it brought back a lot of memories...I have the manuals and parts of xplosion like you showed earlier in the thread.

I have been looking for that part, but I think I'll have to come to terms with it not being available ever again.
Like the one on the right?

Wow! I was thinking about popping mine off the shelf for a run over the next couple of weekends and your post is a good motivator to do that plus Iíve been shopping on eBay

Yep - retro muffler to match the manifold I got for the GS11R - will have to convert one chassis to it, unfortunately the ASP engine starter doesnít give the clearance needed so the noisy oil leak will be it!

Hi Xtext, that sounds good, I took some photos from my parts lot, some are spares so if you see anything you need just shout out. I just got a used old truggy today to start wrenching on. I wonít talk about my other cars (off topic)

Hello everyone.
I'm also restoring a Spider.
For the chassis, Integy still sells the model in 4mm thickness
And price is very little for a competition chassis. I'm waiting for the one I ordered ...
