The SB does come in a Pro version and while you can find the Sport version around still it is being discontinued. C'mon over to the SBv2 Pro thread and post. Dave G is the product manager at MRC USA (US distributor) and will very likely be able to figure out how you can get a car and parts.
OG RC10 T, I hear you there. My Academy kits both came "in the nick of time" and I had to assemble quickly. I would've liked to do it more like you (beer insteead of coffee).
If you ever get an Academy car you will be amazed though. They have done an amazing job of reducing the parts count with these. When I took out the parts bags I felt like I was missing some things.
