Default stolen buggy

Recently my dirt bike and my dad's buggy and 2 motors got stolen. My dirt bike was worth about 1,000 dollars and my dads buggy was a k3 worth about 2,500 adn the motors were an o.s. v-spec and hot mods p-5.all toally around 4,200 dollars. The fuzz came down and dusted for finger prints and whatnot. They didn't,however, get my buggy because it was sittin there with no motor or electronics in it. So they obviously didnt know much about the sport. My dad gave his trnsponder number and everything to local hobby shops.

So sorry to hear that... Where are you from and where did this happen? It's good to put out an APB so others can keep thier eyes open for it... especially at hobby shops and eBay! Best of luck with your hunt! Hope you guys catch the scumbag!

That really sucks! Hope you get it all back in one piece! That also happened to Adam Drake with his competition AD2 if my memory serves me correctly. They got it back when the thieves brought it to a hobby shop looking to buy a radio for it.

You guys should already have the information. My dad gave it to the owner of the store.

Man that blows!! Be sure to hit the local tracks hard now to see if they show up out there racing. I had a guy steal my 4 tec when I ran into field house for less than 2 minutes. I kinda feel bad for the guy who stole it though cuz the car was a HUGE p.o.s. (The only reason I still had it was cuz I felt guilty pawning it off on someone on ebay..lol) So it could have been worse. Anyway sorry to hear about your losses!
