We appreciate it so THANKS!!!

I want to know who made this (936?). I know it is not original as it has (SCX) steering front end glued on). I also have a couple of old decal sets for it (exactly what is on it now) but I also do not know whose they are.

I think it is fairly plain in detail but worth a freshen up and maybe some good running gear so...

Knowledge base building for this car starts....... NOW!¨





PS: thanks in advance as always...

That's alright...


Can't help immediatly, but... can we see more pictures of the front end?

Also, where did you get it from?

More tomorrow Graham - thanks

It came in a bunch of cars I bought a couple of weeks ago including a French Power Sledge Matra F1 that had Mr M quite excited


Seems it was a good lot.

Maclaren - what part of the front end is missing from the pic and how will that help?

MRRC...Mine now has a TSRF chassis underneath it, and is probably the fastest car on my home circuit.

Yes it is Airfix/MRRC 936!

Fairly late production one too, with that Mabuchi fitted. Mine all have Johnson111 or 222. They will probably fit as it looks like adaptors have been used to fit the Mabuchi. Steering is standard fitment on these, but wheels look different from what I can see.

I didn't think it was SCX steering, because I have used it in a scratchbuild before, and it didn't look like that...

Looks like it's asking for some Slot.It gear and a faster motor to me...

Any ideas how you would add weight to aid handling? On the body would be too high up, so a kind of under chassis would be cool. Can't wait to see what you do to it...

Would make a sweet Porsche Cup car I am thinking.

Thanks for the help guys, I reckon a Slot.It HRS chassis to start with plus some detailing.

As I said, I have two sets of decals for it (straight replacements) but they are old and a litle yellowed. I also have a set of 936 decals (also Martini) fro mPattos.
Anyone know which car the Pattos ones are from? Pics would be grand.

Here you go - closer steering pic, still not perfect but better?

It looks glued on and certainly not screwed.

That is an Airfix/MRRC steering unit, but it may be the wrong one, looks a little narrrow to me.
They were held on this car with two screws into the posts in the body that you can see in the pic.
You can't really glue the kind of plastic they were made from, so don't know whats holding it on!
I should have the correct steering unit if you want one.

Maybe you know H+T Motorracing in Mörfelden/Germany.

there I bought this body as a kit, the Martini decals included. It is definitely MRRC.

Allan

This is a very poor picture of my MRRC 936, before I fitted a TSRF chassis to it.

As you can see it does indeed have the two screw fixing for the steering assembly.

I do still have this complete unit in my Spares box, so if you would like it, just send me a PM. I would like to see it returned to it's "former glory".



Regards

Alan
