May 2009 shopping!

Monster beetle body sets are commonly for sale, but they come with a Blitzer nose cone, so further looking turned up a Monster beetle nosecone (caked in plenty of coats of paint!).

The gear casings and suspension parts came as one lot for a not unreasonable price.

The servo saver was relatively expensive, but essential really.

The chassis plate was not too difficult to find, and I only needed this for reference to make the new carbon piece.
