(not bothered either way) (i'll leave the ball in your court), would you be willing to post to me then I would post to you upon reciept?..

i have no feedback on here as i have never sold anything on oople, only purchased, but could give you my 750 transactions 100% feedback ebay profile which you could contact me through so you know its me,

hi,

the shock towers are from:

http://www.rcmodelimports.co.uk/com/...th=363_176_290


the body is from:

http://phatbodies.bigcartel.com/prod...at-bodies-mojo

the alloy parts i got from ebay but i've found somewhere a lot cheaper and they have all alloy parts in stock at $14.50 each, (amazing site):

http://gpmracing.com.hk/catalog/main...99d2fbd77a4d85


the screw kits i got from:

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXLYA7&P=7

but unfortunatly they had them reduced from $44 to $8 so i purchased the last 5 sets they had and are now showing as discontinued..


since the photo's i put above i have put on the car a blue alloy wing mount and blue screws in the front shock tower and blue screws on steering and top plate mount and blue alloy steering posts.

i have coming (hopefully tomorrow) some silver carbon front and rear shock towers, and soon after that some blue alloy body posts, will post some more pics when i am happy with it and i think i have finished it, which will hopefully be in next week

i could put in it a motor and servo and speed controller, so then you would just need to keep your reciever and handset for it, but truthfully , i know i'm being silly saying this but you would be better off selling your car on ebay and then buying a shark with the proceeds,

sharks arnt as dear as they used to be, i dont like to see people lose out..

as you will more than likely have some money left over, i have a friend putting a shark on ebay in the next week or so and it has a top of range speed controller and motor in it and will be the extended 25mm longer version
