sorry gene, that is always sucks no matter what, when I had my handyman tool bag stolen from my truck I was so upset, not so much $$$ but for all the specific and favorite tools I accumulated over the years. It was a pain to assemble my "kit" back from scratch.

So they got all your tools and accessories/parts? the whole race kit? may we ask how it went down so we can learn and maybe avoid the same fate? Or at least someone here can connect the scene of the crime with something heard or seen.

At least you got your truck. Mine went Bye Bye with my high end stero and Foose wheels. I hate living so close to Mexico

Im sorry to hear about your RC lost. I will keep my eyes open on the internet. Check Craigslist every couple of days.

Damn, another one? Aren't you in FL? There was someone on here a few days ago that had his stuff stolen from his pit trailer, pretty sure in FL. Friend here had his stuff stolen in San Antonio a few years back about the same time another froend lost guns, decoys, etc, on the west side of Houston. Police told them there was a theft ring working that stretch of highway. Bait car might be the ticket. Sorry to hear, hope you get your stuff back.

Thanks. It was SW FL from my driveway. Just never took my bags out of the locked truck to move them to my trailer when I got back from the winter Nats last week. I usually never leave my stuff in my truck because I know too many people who have had all their R/C stuff stolen from their cars. I went to put it away today and saw the busted lock on my truck so I knew it was all gone.

Buggy, radio, and 20+ years of tools/spare parts is what really sucks. Plus the new VP-Pro tires that are not even out yet and other proto parts.

Oh man that sucks! Did they go straight for the trunk? Would lead me to believe that someone knew what you had back there if they did. I would contact all lhs owners to keep an eye out. Check ebay the occasional time. Will insurance (car or home) help you in this matter?
