I'd say Ebay's your best bet (car is 17 years old I believe)...

Sweet car btw... if it's in like new shape, keep it as a shelf queen, it's worth more like this!

I think a guy with the last name Dunn and his brother used to import them in to the States. I am sorry I do not know how to get ahold of them. If you can find someone that knows them maybe they can get you what you need.

You are correct about the Dunn's importing them. Race Prep out of Arizona was the company that imported them and they also had a bada$$ saddle pack chassis tray conversion for it.

The coolest radiant I ever saw was one that was converted into a truck (this was before the RC10T and Losi trucks came out). It was the fastest thing running at SRS in Tempe, now Scottsdale Arizona but the guy couldn't make runtime with the crap batteries we had 15 years ago.

Chances are Race Prep still has some kits as they didn't sell many.

yes...it was Mike, and Steve Dunn, but I think Race Prep was in so cal when they were the AYK distributors...the Radiant was a rear motor 4 wheel drive...the saddle pack chassie tray was actually for the Pro Radiant that was a mid-motor 4 wheel drive....they probably sold more of them than you think, as they were pretty popular at the time.......
