Every single RC car should come with serial numbers throughout the kit! Would help with thieves, and also would help with the company in locating where the batch of bad parts came from.
ex- Well lets see here this chassis number 567354901 had parts installed from this batch of a-arm's 89769455.
Well it looks we have had many A-arms that came from this batch (567354901)that looks to be bad.(too much air in the plastic???)

(sure glad i live in northern lower michigan). makes me wonder if i want to go out of state and race? guys that steal from freinds, REALLY! its a sad sad day when you cant trust a fellow racer! i think i would sell all my stuff (if not stollen first). hope you find the guy and comatose his A$$!!!
I WOULD!
This wasn't a club race!! It was the opening round of the Missouri state series. This race had over 180 entries.. I was there when Nick came and told me his buggy had been taken, and he was truelly shaken. I hope it can be found.

I had my 811 stolen so I know the feeling, the problem is people know how much this stuff is and they actually plan to go to the track and steal stuff, they look for the best looking ride out there and thats what they try and get. There was 3 cars stolen at the JBRL at Rev and mine was one, the other they were asking questions about his car before they took his. So they are still out there so if you are going to the Nats warmup watch your stuff. PS My friend had about $800 worth of stuff stolen out of his car and found it the next week on Craigs List so there is a chance, Keep your eyes open!!

Yes Coach I was pitting on left side of second door with my race buddy and his son ,my buddy talked to that teenager asking questions about racing.I paid no attention to him as I was getting my gear ready.Dont know if hes a local kid or not as I live 2hrs away.This didnt happen til 1a.m or so after my buddy left cause it was getting late,so iwas pitting alone at that time and was just thinking about getting my truggy ready as I just bumped into pro truggy a-main.
Anyways THANK YOU guys!!!! I know chances are slim on getting it back but I have too try worked too hard (as most of us do) to get that buggy and everything needed to get ready for race season.

Luckily there was no engine on it as he borrowed one for the race and had just returned it.

Man I hope this kinda thing doesn't spill over the Atlantic. I'd hate to have to keep my stuff locked up when I'm helping someone out pitting.

As it is right now I can leave my stuff unattended, and I know it will all be there. OK once in a while someone will borrow a wrench, but I always know who it is and can be sure it will find it's way back.

Sorry to hear about your loss dude, hope the person responsible get's his comeuppance.
