a good way to clean up the vintage vehicles is to scrub them with goof off and a tooth brush, and then wash them with a mild dish soap. I do this with all the vintage vehicles i buy. that way u have a nice clean surface to put the stickers on. your Mamba looks like mine when i first got it. i cleaned it up and it looks like i just took it out the box. still havent put new stickers on it yet. and i can feel your pain about getting into the vintage stuff. i went a little crazy on ebay awile back and bought pretty much every vehicle made from 82 to 87. it was to much and i ended up selling a lot of it. there is just something about having a nice clean vintage vehicle from my past. hell my sky striker is older than most of my friends. looks in better shape than all of them too. glad your enjoying your mamba, just remember its like crack.

Mine was like that factory fresh, when I was a kid, and that is how I fixed it.

Do the rotors hit each other and fly off like they did with mine as a kid?

I got one 1 year ago or so never had one when I was a kid. My rotor had a few problems I fixed them putting some toilette paper to fix to blade in the proper place. It's ok now. I guess super glue would work too but I try to avoid that in such old items. If one day I have to sell it it's a big down and also difficult to ship it with the blades in.

I really liked the Mamba as well, although the purple w/ red windows was a bit hard on the eyes. A retooled black or dark blue version w/ normal tinted windows would be awesome. That thing really was a beast! I'd expect it to eat the Dragonfly alive.

Ah the Mamba.. I (for the longest time) had one that was about 2/3rd complete but I was always too lazy to order/find the missing pieces online.
I got lucky about a year ago and found one on Ebay MISB for $60! The box isn't in the BEST shape, but its sealed and makes a nice display piece.
Sad part is you can't play with it!!
