Default Stolen Car and r/c stuff

FYI-

I had my 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee stolen today in Seattle. In the back seat was my XXX-S Graphite Plus car and assorted r/c stuff including a new Hudy Truer, JR XS3 radio and foam tires.

The XXX-S was newly built. Loaded with ti, electronics and some special items. The car is rather distinct. It doesnt look like a kit XXXS.

The Jeep had California Plates and is char-green colored.


If you see any of the items appear on any of the threads, please let me know. Chances are I wont see any of it return but you never know.


Thanks in advance.

That sucks man. Keep an eye on for sale threads, and I'd also keep checking ebay to see if anything shows up.

Damn! sorry to hear that Mark! Hope you find it somehow. It's bad enough to just loose a car but to loose the R/C stuff sucks!

Thanks to everyone for their responses.

This has been quite a learning experience.

I dont expect to see the 1:1 car back at all. I am sure it is well into Canada by now or parted out.

As Speedo and RcZom. know, there arent too many places to run sedans in WA.

The pic below is similar to the car I lost. This was more of an fyi that if someone notices something similar for sale.

The car is a XXXS G+ with Kevlar Spurs, clear spur cover, Ti-nitrate hingepins, Losi Graphite Shock Towers f/r, SpeedTech RollCenter Aluminum Pivot/Blocks, Trinty MF Rear Roll Center Pivot/Blocks all Novak Gear, D5, and JR hi-speed digital servos. The car has a motor guard like the one below. And running gear is mounted indentically. Only exception is that the stolen car has purple springs.

The Hudy Truer was brand new AC-type.

Clint- I remember your problem last year, insurance should come through ok. It is just a pain to have to get this all claimed out. It can all get replaced, too bad I cant get the theif to send me the setup leiu of the car. Ill miss the setup more.

Mdawson- My home owners covered my loss last year. It sucked having to dig up all of my receipts for my loss but I got all new equipment because of it. Hang in there.
