Moderators: can you sticky this for a little while and maybe put something up on the front page?

So we were keeping this under wraps hoping that someone would show up on the forums looking for help. There hasn't been any activity so I will go ahead and post it. A couple of weeks ago on February 24th (Sunday) there was a large group of us bashing at Ocean Beach in San Francisco, CA. Around 3:00 PM someone walked into our work area and stole my 4x4 prototype baja. The car that they drove off in didn't have any plates and the witnesses were not able to get a good look at the person. At the time of the theft the baja was missing a custom telescopic rear drive-shaft and the front wheel was loose. Essentially the car was in a non-drivable condition. Who ever stole it, or by now has bought it, will not be able to get parts for it and will probably go looking for help. I expect that this car will either be parted out or sold at a pawn shop, hobby shop, on ebay or through craigslist. We have been keeping an eye on these venues but nothing has popped up. The vehicle has an estimated value of $10,000 including an $1100 custom blue TS motor. If you guys hear or see anything or someone trying to sell parts that look like they might have come from this car please let me know.

Thanks

It looks like it will probably be covered but I have to figure out "cost of replacement" obviously they will not pay for my time and efforts. And I would still like to catch what ever douche comes looking for help with this thing. Even if they bought it off someone it's stolen property. And because the value of the car it gets bumped up to grand theft which is a felony in most states.

I'm 100% with you! What a dumb move which goes to show how stupid and naive they are to the 1/5 scale hobby to think about stealing a one of a kind - Damn art theives.... There is no way they can sell it without it showing up somewhere...
