LOVE this post. BTW,I DO NOT like to spread rumor,nor "stir the pot",but I have heard from a very reliable person in the slot car community this information. He has recently bought lots of surplus from a recently opened sea/land container that has set in storage for over 50+ years now that was sent from Japan. I would be skeptical,but I have some of the parts that I bought from the claim. He is also telling me there are more to be opened that have been sitting in the harbor for that long as well. ......



NOS Mabuchi's could be on the horizon by the thousands.........    Cannot confirm?

Hi Michael,

     I've seen these sorts of things before.  While it may happen, I'll be more of a believer when I see Professor Motor selling FT16D end bells for a buck a throw!  :D  I'm not really bummed about things though.  When the stuff is all truly gone, then people (*myself included) will simply move on.
