Default RE: Tamiya Porsche 959 4WD resoration thread


The chassis:

The condition of the chassis approves it hasn't been through the hell many of its brothers have suffered. This one actally is in a great condition!
The only thing I figured missing so far is the original MSC incl. resistor. But instead there is a trusty (but not contemporary) TEU-101 ESC!
There is some hot glue on a battery holder, need to take a closer look at that. Strangely, the tires have no cracks. I never had that on a car this old before!
I'm not sure if I should open the diffs, as they turn really well and the dogbones show nearly no wear. Maybe only a good clean for the chassis and some fresh oil for the shocks. We'll see.

Here are some pics of the chassis:
