Old Skool Team

Kickin’ it on google and found this “Where Are They Now?” thread looking for Eustace Moore, Jr. and other old time racers...for a while there was no clue where Eustace was....

Where are they now? the old skool team..
Jammin Jay Halsey
Gil Losi Jr
The Dunn Brothers
Moore Eustace Jr.

Kent Clausen
Mike Lavacot
Ralph Burch
Tony Neisinger
Cliff Lett

Anyone know where they all are? I know some work behind the scenes for various RC companies (some are obvious...), but am curious, where they all are now. =) Anyone?http://www.teamassociated.com/basicshub/timeline/1980/racingpg2b.gif

What about Joel "magic" Johnson? Is he still with trinity? All I know is the kids today don't know how good they have it! In the eighties you either coughed up $80 for an MIP tranny, or you had to spend about 10 hours polishing all of the gears in a stock RC10 tranny to get it to work worth a damn! Not to mention the MIP trailing arms, and the kyosho gold shocks, ahh, those were the days though...

I had a rc10 with a A and L chain gearbox, parma monster truck add-on, and the MIP trailing arm conversion kit. This was like back in 1990.. do you know how HARD it was to build that thing?!?! to make tirods on spiral pieces of metal? LOL I thought Joel did Losi's website for awhile.... :| maybe I was mistaken.

That would be, Eustace Moore Jr. As in Moore's Ideal Products(MIP). Still cranking out some of the highest quality machined products after all these years."
