:lol: I dont see how, as when the nitro evaporates, then the oils and that left is what cause the rusting.

I think thats right anyway. And the pinching at the top is a good sign

Well I would thought the oils would...prevent oxygen from coming in contact with the metal surfaces.

Go for it!!!

Beaware! putting a new liner + piston will be a pain in da bum if its anything like the T-15

But it looks good and the pinch sign is good as well...
Sounds like you dont need a new liner really.... but its totally upto u :D

:lol: the springs are a good thing ;)

If you cant put the clutch back together, keep with it as they are fiddly little things to do, even with a manual :wacko:

This is where it really would be better to have the manual. Maybe go on www.rcuniverse.com and ask if anyone has it, as I know a few people over there have vintage cars :good:

Different car...look at the pics of mine and look at that PDF. Mine is old! Your car looks nice!

cyclone pro has made so many threads mine is nearly on the 2nd page. Not happening. I have more pics to post tomorrow!

Bought the instruction manual from ebay...cost me 4 quid! But should be worth it if I can get this car going again!

Have you got the box? Or the manual? Your looking for a Kyosho GP Spider MKII. Spare parts are really hard to find for these things at the moment it seems. It's a proper old car.

I am sure they did a McLaren body yes. Could you take some pics of the car with the shell off? I'll tell you if it is the same car. If you don't know how to post them here let me know and I'll give you my email address.

Do you think he might want to sell it on if it's too hard for him to find bits?

Modelsport stuff....half a bottle in the garage. Must be well off by now! This car makes me think after run oil is a farce? We'll see when I get the engine apart.
