    They might have one at my LHS (Maybe 30 min drive one way from fresno) But no garuntees. I'm about 90% sure that they'll have one at Speedworld raceway in Roseville. Not 100% though so no quoting me lol.

    lol, then you will have to buy all that stuff anyways, this is not a cheap hobby bro, you need a backplate or a pullstart? Either way, its whats standard on an hpi rs4 3 evo, hpi mt or mt2
