it is a black s15!
This reminds me of the most common conversation for a model shop owner a few years ago when a certain blue rally car was very popular...

CUSTOMER: Hi I've broken my RC car, do you have the part I need?
OWNER: What kind of car is it?
CUSTOMER: An Impreza.
OWNER: I mean what make of Impreza.
CUSTOMER: Subaru.

Cue model shop owner holding head in hands and quietly sobbing in desperation.

Be more specific..

what BRAND of car is it..
what MODEL of car

Which screw? part number?

Is it a :
kingpin
grubscew
ball-end screw?
pin-retaining screw?
clamping screw for a hex hub?
pillow-ball screw?

If it's a hobby branded car then providing it's not too old, spares should be available. If it's a toy shop car - good luck!

having worked in a model shop for the last 3 years you have no idea how many time i have to deal with that. however there are a few things wrong with your story,

1: its not pronounced Impreza it is in fact 'Pretza

2: the next question is normaly what kind of chassis is it?
the answer is Blue.


back to the subject, if the car is the yokomo drift package then the screw holds in the hinge pin in the suspension and is important, but easily fixed

The car is a YOKOMO YR-4M. as your in a "i will beat everyone with a rubbish car" phase.

The black box i would guess is some badass Dick Dastardly style secret wepon. Just fitted mine ready for carpetwars
