i hate to say it but I would probably pay more for the brushed rooster esc than for that chassis. Believe me, I'm tracking down parts for a few older tamiya chassis and they are hard enough to find reputable dealers for let alone for CEN.
Your best bet would be to try and find current parts from other kits that would fit the chassis. Once you find that out, it would be easier to race it, and not worry about breakage...
