Default reviving an old stadium truck

hi all, i have an old kyosho inferno tr15 stadium truck which has been out of action for at least 4 years. i took it to the shop i bought it from maybe about a year ago but they where pretty useless and didnt get back to me on the spare parts. so i was thinking is it possible to stick on parts from different model cars? such as shocks and a arms? because they discontinued this model and dont stock parts in the store. and is it possible to stick on a bigger engine (it uses a .15)?

i dont know much about the cars but im pretty sure i can do some simple part swapping my self.

search for part numbers many are used in new models. check RPM website and see if they have any aftermarket parts. Shock upgrades wont be very difficult, just get same length and all should be good, might need diff bolts for shock tower and maybe different shock ends but thats easy stuff.

ok thanks will check the rpm website out. How about engines? because from what i recall the stock gsr15 (?) motor wasnt very strong at all, i was thinking of maybe putting a bigger engine if possible or stronger same sized engine

You need to buy the special engine mount from Kyosho to fit a standard engine.
