Thanks and I will get some pics.
You know I do the same thing. Load up all my stuff the night before or I'll leave it in the truck till the next day after coming home from a race. I won't be doing that anymore. Even though your vehicle is locked if they want it bad enough they will break the window out to get it.

Definitly keep an eye on Craigslist!! As mentioned before, contact ALL of the tracks and give them the tranponder numbers and have them call you if they show up.

Transponders are hard to come by these days and they sell quick, that may be the only way to track these punks down.

I also agree that it was someone that knows you have all of that gear. If I were you, I would go vist all of the cats that know you race...somebody knows something!

It's usually a little late when you think of it, as it was for me too, but a guy on here Jaz240 posted about some insurace for your rc stuff after my stuff was stolen. Not a bad idea considering the investment we all have in this game.

Its a PROVEN FACT that 9 out of 10 thefts involve one party that knows the other, being an INSIDE job. Was this stuff stolen at your house? Was your truggy stolen as well? More details please. Sorry to hear about the loss. By any chance is any of the stuff covered under your car insurance policy?

I've posted this before but if you have a home your homeowners should cover it. As long as it happened in your home state. I had some guns and hunting stuff stolen out of my truck when we stopped for a bite to eat on a trip to deer camp and my homeowners replaced it all. I'll keep my eyes out for your TP's and your rides once I see some pics.

I didn't even think about that! I have all of my camera gear insured.... lost, stolen, broken, even medical if someone is injured from it. I didn't even think about the rc cars, that is an awesome idea.

Good lookin' out Singletary!

That sucks to get your RC's stolen! I just check my transponders that I bought second hand and none of them have the numbers that you posted. I'll keep an eye out for the transponder numbers bud.
