Default Raco 1/4 scale

I have a couple of 1/4 scale Raco's Indy car and stadium truck I would love to find parts and/or whole models to to keep the big boy's runing.
any help or fellow Raco owners would love to hear whats out there.

I recovered these from a mean pack of dust bunnies and want to make em roar again.

Thanks!

Hi, I have a Reco Sidewinder - complete car with two spare chaise's and parts without radio and receiver - body is a NAS Car body - cracked in a couple of spots and it definately needs tires. The engine is a G230 - runs well - The chaise and components are in excellent condition. Took it on a trade for a boat - can email you pics if you are interested? Thanks, Tom

hello, I just recently recovered an old raco stadium truck, cleaned the carb & tank charged the battery, & it runs great. I live in rural Utah & don't have a clue how this thing ended up here. the front tires are cracked, but in tact, th aluminum rear body brackets have been repaired, & a few screws are not original. the body has never been painted, but has to cracks, one running to the hood from under the left side of the front bumper, the other from the right front fender upwards about 2-3 inches but no plastic is missing just cracked through. also the eight quarter turn dzus body fasteners are missing but I have some on the way. just got started researching this thing, no where to run it around here except in the dirt, & I really don't want to do that. would rather sell or trade it for something gasoline driven made for dirt or sell it would consider serious offer only. Ken
