Patience, money and ebay can yield a lot of reward. There's a few of these cars BNIB on ebay at the moment and more than a couple of bodies. I guess other spares can't be far behind.
To do the kit to modern specs can be a futile exercise because you might find you can't race it anywhere. Check with your local race track and see if you can enter one of their classes with it. If they have a silvercan class you're set. If not, it may actually be cheaper to buy a new car. Not because it would be more competitive but you can actually buy kits that are cheaper than all the parts you need. And if you have to get a motor/esc, I wouldn't jump in the brushless thing if money is a constraint. There's plenty of top brushed gear being dumped on ebay for peanuts. Look and ask around before you buy.
