Here's one you don't see every day. Made by Model cars of Missouri. Very unusual bearing set up. The user had to bend motor mounts to fit frame. Kind of cheesy. Instructions have the usual nonsense of the day like "The guide shoe stabilizer prevents dangerous wobble" Dangerous? and "Tru-Line is the winningest name in racing chassis".
Winningest? Can you prove it? Anyway, enjoy this rarity.
