    To build or not to build it... What a question! I would say no, how many left are out there unassembled? If you decide to build it anyways, take your time, a lot of time, don't strip threads, be very careful with the shocks, and again, don't rush it...

    Build it. That is what these things were made for. If you were only interested in a box with plastic in it I'll trade you the wildcat you got coming for a box with plastic in it

    I've always seen NIB kits as a luxury for a collector but only after having one out of box first. If you don't have a runner or shelfer to display a NIB is just a box of plastic. Thats where my thoughts are anyway. It'd be cool if everyone collecting rc stuff was wealthy enuf to have 3 of each...runner(best one there is), shelfer and NIB.

    I am glad it showed up safely. I could never bring myself to build it. I don't think you will ever find another one like it still in the box. I would keep searching eBay for a parts car to come up and build a runner if you want one.

    If you ever want to sell it I would buy it back. I got a touch of sellers remorse.

    The collector backed out. I bought it from him in 2006. He may not remember it like that but it is what it is.

    So, you're saying the kit you just sold is the one that Razer used to own? Interesting because he claimed to have sold his to a collector in Japan. Interesting for sure!

    Yes that is correct. It never made it to Japan.

    To quote his email from 4/8/2006:
    Anyway, the guy in Japan said he wouldn't have the money for them for another two months, so if you want them, they're yours. I have some pics on the NIB & the runner in the following links, but I can take more (on Mon or Tues) if you want.
    The only reason I bring this up is to point out that the Wildcat is really rare. Enjoy it!

    Awesome, thanks! The servo saver is the one I have, I have to get those rod ends... On the capacitor, what's the number on top of 16v?

    White turning red? As far a as I know white turns yellow, but red? Strange...
