Unfortunately my friend,they're just standard Cobra spares.
The only bit that might blow my skirt up is the lexan undertray and that's about it.

Would this qualify for vintage as a rere or is it too different from the original?

Mid motor, not really a rere at all surely? Although externally, it looks like the same gearbox!

Taking my cobra racing this weekend, poor thing doesn't know whats coming.

I believe its going to be available mid and rear motor although I'm not sure if it can be used in vintage as a rere. Incidently, Mardave are selling the ball diff for the car already

It should qualify, as long as it's rear motor. The only way a buggy can run mid motor is if the original buggy was made that way, even original mid motor conversions are banned. We tightened up the rules on this last year after some drivers, and Phil Barlow in particular, were starting to spend hundreds custom building mid motor conversions which bore little connection to the original car.

The chassis looks similar to the original so should be fine, especially as the gearbox is supposed to be compatible with the original chassis. We allow the Topcoat and XLS with the pro transmission upgrade, the upgraded Cobra gearbox is a lot nearer the original than Schumacher's upgrade is.

The Cobra would be in the 94-98 category, so it would be running with the Associated B3, Losi XX and Schumacher Cougar 2000.

The Cobra would actually be in the 89-93 class as it was released in 1992.

So racing against Rc10 teams, cougars etc.

Still no pre-order on the Mardave site. Very interested in this.. I really like my old cobra. Just releasing the new diff and idler is a bonus.
