Cox Mercedes W-196 tether car

Manufactured by L.M. Cox Company, Santa Anna Ca - 1961

Bottom feeder rebuilt with help from Jason and his 3D printer

Stock except for suspension pegs and copious amounts of plastic glue and epoxy, fitting most likely in "Stock" class but can be moved into any class that the judges see fit. 

A favorite among favorites despite being the most frustrating of all my Cox products.

Here's finky. He's too egocentric to stay out of the car contest!! Ok here's the back story. My wife and I were grocery shopping at Walmart. When we checked out and came back to our car there was a shopping cart in front of our car. When I looked in the cart someone had left a rat trap in the cart. So I took it. When I got home I thought what can I make out of this trap. Rat fink came to my twisted mind, and so it goes! Finky is a revell model with daisy bb eyes. Hand painted with .049 engine . The idea was to keep it in the rat fink tradition, cartoonish if you will. Mark

My entry for the OPEN CLASS

Jerobee Greenwood Corvette with Cox 049 Babe Bee

2019 Official Cars Are The Stars entry submission thread LOCKED! P6020612

2019 Official Cars Are The Stars entry submission thread LOCKED! P6020613




The Jerobee RC car was the first 1/12 car produced. At the end of the 60’s and beginning of the 70’s; RC cars became the new vogue in modelling. The then existing 1/8 cars were expensive. Rocket Research from Washington brought the Jerobee on the market in mid 1971 with the aim to offer an RC car for less than 100 USD.

The local newspaper The Sammamish Valley New published this article in August 1971:

2019 Official Cars Are The Stars entry submission thread LOCKED! Gaztte11



Originally, Jerobee, a company name of Rocket Research, manufactured a wide range of machine screws. In June 1972, the machine screw business was sold and in 1973, Rocket Research sold Jerobee to Jomac Industries, a new company established by Don McKay and John Congdon.

What makes the Jerobee worth collecting is that this car was not only the first 1/12 scale car but was also the start of a new model racing class, first for gas powered cars and later with electric power. Other makes that started manufacturing 1/12 cars often used the complete Jerobee chassis as a base. Jerobee was very popular because of the availability of spare parts which included parts for the Cox 049 BabeBee and TeeDee.

2019 Official Cars Are The Stars entry submission thread LOCKED! Empty Control 1-Adam-12, 10-8

Post  Frizzen on Sun Jun 02, 2019 7:38 pm

Modified  Cox 1972 AMC Matador "Adam-12", free run car with cam steering.

This vehicle has been modified for use with 1/14 scale Remote control Trucking and Construction equipment at indoor meets and public events.

2019 Official Cars Are The Stars entry submission thread LOCKED! 5ANmJA4l


All light lenses have been removed, various parts drilled, LEDs modified to fit, and reinstalled. It's running 2 headlights, 2 amber markers, 2 red markers, 6 red taillights, 2 red fwd roof, 2 amber aft roof. The roof lights each have 3 runs of 0.005" magnet wire installed through the bases to power both 3mm leds inside.

Roof

The roof antenna was broken above the loading coil, so it was replaced by some monofilliment fishing line with the tip melted into a ball. All chrome has been touched up or added using Molotow paint pens.

Current ride height and chrome

The chassis has been modified to fit an electric transaxle with a 130 motor and spool diff, as well as accepting the new electronics. I had adapter bushings milled to fit the stock steelie wheels to the new axle. The rear cross brace is a more secure way than stock to keep the rear body from dropping too low

2019 Official Cars Are The Stars entry submission thread LOCKED! Pey3dzil

It's running a Flysky Fs-i6 6 ch 2.4ghz radio, 7.2v nimh battery, 30a esc with brake, 130 size brushed motor, mini servos, an Evan Design police siren with 4 modes, and 2 servo boads converted into light controllers.

Night

Here speed is reduced to 40% epa for anew camera man, and probably will run about the same for indoor meets

Thank you for your consideration. Adam 12 clear.
