When did the Prop Rod convert from aluminum pan to plastic? Wasn't the bottom half originally aluminum or some alloy and at some time they switched to plastic?
  Mudhen?

p.s. Admin: Isn't it time to make an emoticon of an RC person driving a RC car?

1962, but it was in two phases.
The first phase saw the introduction of the polypropylene bottom,
but the power pod was still made of polystyrene.
In 1963 the power pod was changed to polypropylene
and used a pressed-in key to hold it in place.
