A few guys from Southern California and myself from Northern Cali got together to run some vintage and some non vintage stuff.

I think Rich, it's cus at Ainsdale, we never could see the water could we?

And no-doubt, it's a fair bit warmer in So-Cal?

Jim what rear tyres are those? I could do with a set for my sand scorcher they look much better than the stock ones.

They are rear tires from the AYK566 with one of the paddles cut down in between

interesting front suspension setup on that AYK! I've seen trailing arm front suspension rigs before, but never with a shock setup like that! I bet it must have a ton of travel!

Not a huge amount. The shock still compresses normally. I had a customer bring one in a few months ago in decent but neglected condition. He didn't want to sell it

I must say a set of those rubbers on my SS would be nice in the desert.

I have to say that these tires really hook up in the sand

The whole time I am watching/enjoying the old Tamiya's playing on the beach I am thinking all the metal parts on those RC's will be rusting from the salt soon.
I took my RC10 to the beach once, didn't even take it on the beach, I only drove it on the sidewalk above the beach and every screw and unprotected metal on it rusted within a months time after. Drove me nuts after that.

I have a set of these on one of my scorchers, they are awesome if you can find them. I am still trying to find some more for my other Scorcher.
