I think it's actually just 'whoop', no matter where you are.

Thats why i always unload gear before going anywhere. Learned this when playing paintball.

Bad part is they probaly followed them from the track. Hopefully they catch the sorry bastards.

PT # 9810154 - buggy
6868777 - truggy

The chasis is only milled out under the motor and fuel tank....that's about all I can give away....unless you see it.


Yes we were able to borrow cars and trucks to make the race and it turned out to be a great day of racing. Thanks to every one who lent their equipment to us so we could race.

No one is going to break into a car and steal a bag full of tires and toy cars unless they know what they are. Chances are you know who the thief is. Sucks having prototype stuff on your car. Still have the m-shocks? If so, this isn't the first 808 stolen for that.

Hopefully a transponder is found. Other than the chassis thats the only way the car can be identified. Thats what the cops told me.
Nobody wants Airtronics radios! LOL.

That sucks

I just hope I'm not a suspect as I tried to give you directions to the place that it happened and I didn't know exactly where it was just told you to go that way.

I hope they get caught and are delt with

Was a great race to watch for sure

Default Bad into good

I like Jason want to thank all the great people at the race and RC Headquarters for helping us out and allowing us to be able to race. As bad as the situation was we couldn't help but be blown away by the support of the RC community and how many people came up asking what we needed to get borrowed cars on the track and be able to race.

Even if I had to drive a Mugen!!! lol (just kidding thank you Robby for lending me your ride!) The Good news is it looks like insurance is going to cover a good portion of our loss and the great folks at RC America are shipping cars out as we speak to Jason and myself.

my transponder numbers are #4661751 and #7361657

I do have to say one thing that puzzles me and that is it really seemed like they knew what they were looking for. I hate to say it but I might agree with some of the comments on here that think it was somebody in the RC community.

Thanks again to everyone who helped and Jason and I will be in Austin next week at the state finals despite lowlife thieves!!!!!

Nick
