Honestly dude.......

Fisrt off you should be posting something like this in the: for trade/sale forum

Secondly as most of the guys told you already....that car is ancient. If you can't find what you need in the trade/sale forum, craigslist, or fleabay(eBay) you should cut your losses, which is zero, since your friend gave you the car, and get a used rc car that is a little more recent so you'll be able to get parts for it.

I know how it is being attached to a car and all..... (I still have my Mugen MTX2 but its more of a show car that I just play with once in a while and I've invest more into it than it cost me to buy)....that you don't want to let it go, but you didn't even buy that one. Take what you can from the Prime (like the motor, servos, wheels, etc) and put it toward something a little less date.

Surely there are some nice MTX3's, HPI RS4's and NTC3's out there still and you'll have alot easier time getting parts for.

Put that thing peacefully to rest and move on!

I hear you youngin' but where do you think you're going to get parts from for under 30 bucks. I'm telling you, as soon as you buy those arms, you're gonna find that you need something else to make them work properly on your car.

Option one....
Go to the local hobbyshop tell them you have a relic that you'd like to get up and running and that you'll come work for a month or so, helping out any way you can, for them, for free, if they help you out scoring some parts or sell you a used, but decent traded in car.

Option two.....
Line up some neighbors to cut their lawns for the summer. You'll make enough to buy a new car for sure, if you're not afraid of some manual labor. That was how I made cash back in the day......ahhh to be young again.

Option three....
Go down to local race track each time there's a race going one. Swallow your pride and put on the sad puppy dog face and whimper about how your car is so old you can't find parts for it and you can't raise enough money to get a new. Someone might have a soft heart and give or sell you one of their older practice car chassis for dirt cheap. Be sure to take the Prime 12 with you so they can see how pityful it is..... Of course this won't work if everyone knows you as the town menace, you stand over 5'10 and look like you should be on the college football team, or you dad owns the only bank in town that is not owned by Fannie Mac, AIG, Citibank or any of the other failing banks.

If all else fails...
Try behaving yourself and just ask your parents for the cash....even among tough times parents like to reward their kids for doing well and behaving Did I mention behaving?!?!?!?
