Default Vintage TRX3/TCP with many new parts

Up for sale is my beloved Traxxas TRX3/TCP buggy that I purchased new back in the mid 90's. I have done very well racing this buggy over the years and have even brought it out in more recent times to show that old school can still compete with anyone. I have spent a few hundred dollars on brand new parts for this buggy through exhaustive ebay searches and everything must go. Nearly every part has been replaced with NOS or recent manufacture parts and there are several spares as well. Here is a list of some of the new parts: upper and lower chassis plates, shock towers, front and rear arms (including std and long arms), Transmission and internals, MIP outdrives and dogbones, all new blue seal bearings throughout, turnbuckles and captured rod ends, stainless hex hardware throughout, shock shafts, a few sets of NIP wheels and more...also comes with a Novak GTX esc and a Trinity Co27 motor, the original owners manual (sorry no box) and a couple sets of mounted tires. The last race that I ran this car was at the JConcepts Super Cup in Daytona, FL in the stock buggy class- I TQ'd rd 1 of qualifying and went on to start 2nd in the A with a 3rd place finish. Not bad for a 20 year old buggy. See video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LtSbm7eHbM I am finally ready to let her go to someone who can carry on the torch for the old school and can appreciate what this car is. Asking $250.00 shipped, serious inquires/offers only please
