hey dude,


the lrp shark is marketed as the duratrax vendetta in the US.

best combo is the vendetta ST with the chassis and driveshaft from the SC. then grab a Bolt buggy shell from Phat Bodies (http://phatbodies.bigcartel.com/) and your done.

for all things micro scale check out the uk micro forum as well, www.uk-microrc.co.uk.

hope this helps

Haven't seen a "turf track" here in the States, I agree it sure would make upkeep a lot easier - but we don't get near the rain they do in Northern Europe and for whatever reason the turn track idea has never caught on.
But during the snow season in the northern states many of us race 1/18th scale indoors on carpet (ozite) tracks from Oct.-Feb.

Like Matise said, the LRP Shark is marketed/sold in the U.S. under the Duratrax banner.

They ceased production of the "buggy," but the same basic vehicle also comes at the "ST" and a simple body change (Phat Bodies makes some awesome lids http://phatbodies.bigcartel.com/prod...at-bodies-mojo) will get you up and running.
Easiest to get anything Vendetta over here is through Tower hobbies, as they carry about anything you could need. http://www3.towerhobbies.com
