Default ** STOLEN RC GEAR, PLEASE WATCH OUT FOR IT **

After racing Friday night at OCRC my RC stuff stayed the night in my truck and in the morning it was gone. Thank goodness my Kyoshos and Losi 8E made it inside that night but my 4 wheel slash, T8 Trinity roller bag and UpGrade RC roller bag packed with EVERYTHING was stolen.

The Slash had a dyed black chassis with Pro-line shocks, calibers in the rear and bowties up front with black Pro-line wheels. Other than that it was all stock. It was the stock traxxas black and silver body with no stickers but Pro-line all over it. It has many cracks gooed back together with the back end trimmed for air flow.

The T8 bag had an M11X, Muchmore power supply, Orion clubman charger and Hoto charger, OTT lite all Upgrade wrapped black with a little red. Full set of Losi and Pro-line tools. Tekin 13.5 and 17.5 Redline motors, hotwire. Hudy 1/8 tire balancing tool. Drawer full of Kyosho ZX5, RB5 parts.

The up grade bag had three tackle containers full of Losi 8ight parts, two Kyosho boxes full of Pro-line tires for 2 wheel and 4 wheel buggy and a KO EX-5UR transmitter used in the Slash.

If you happen to see any of my stuff act like you are interested in buying it get a phone number, address, name, anything you can, PM it to me and ill take care of the rest.

You guys may know me as the guy in the wheelchair but my name is Brett if you dont know me I would like to get to know you. I've had a great time racing in the past year with everyone and wouldnt trade it for anything. We are a tight group of people and hopefully we can find some of my stuff at least. I didnt know how much stuff I had until now. Thanks guys hope to be back to racing within a month or two. I will not let this get me down!

Car Insurance should cover it. It happened to my brother. He entire drum set was stolen from the back of his truck. Insurance covered the loss, minus deductible of course.
