    I think it is sold as a dummy by MDC, what is powering it. If it is the stock MDC open frame motor, I'm not sure. If it has been powered by a can motor, then it is a deal.

    Hello UPJ,

    I acqured a couple of the Climax kits from Ebay and paid less for both than you did for your one. However by the time I had them together I would not part with either as cheaply as yours.

    These little beauties growl and howl and waddle like ducks. I love 'em. Enjoy.

    Those little climaxes really are great. Ive got one and also an MDC boxcab (uses the same drivetrain. Noisy little things. I really should clean them and try to inprove the electical pickups and them though.
