    Re: Rc rally car

    I started out with the Tamiya Frog. Then I moved up to racing the Team Losi Jrx-2 with the trailing link rear suspension.

    I've still got a ton of stuff, right now my nephew and I have been doing the 1/8 nitro buggy thing.

    The only old thing I still have is my og rc10gt from the late 90s. Im super happy I sold my og bruiser with a buttload of parts and a 4 chan radio for like $220 years ago...

    These days i have a boner for 6s 8th scale brushless.

    Edit: i do have my old xxt for parts. Protip: old xxt's arent brushless compatible.

Not sure I want to completely undo the original work of my uncle but I would like to see it operational again if it's remotely feasible...which is where I would need the help of others with more experience in this area of hobbying.

    Lots of bruiser stuff.
    On a side note, old bruisers sell upwards of a thousand bucks. If you have any others I'll give you $200 for them all day long.

    The bruiser has a re-release currently available, as well as the mountaineer, so you can easily get those parts. If you want original parts, that will be pricey and or impossible.

    Sorry to kinda hijack your thread. If it is at all a consolation, it upped the interest in the things you listed.

    Thank you! I did not find either of those sites when I was poking around for parts off and on over the last couple years . Glad the original body is still good because it looks like I can replace damn near everything on it and then some!
    For me to sell it would take an unreasonable amount of money as there is way too much sentimental value. I remember my uncle building it, I saw it run once soon after it was built and did not see it again until he passed away several years ago. I just happened to find it when we were cleaning his house and it was offered to me. I could not believe he held onto it for all those years but I'm glad he did.

    Re: Rc rally car

    ebay is actually a good source for parts.

    A lot of places sprang up as "chop shops", they buy kits and part them out.
