Stolen 4x4 Baja Prototype!!!

Basically if you see it listed for sale anywhere or on a forum don't go challenging the seller/poster just quietly PM brice and let him call the police. Basically you don't want to go tipping the theif off.

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.


Remember if you see anyone driving what looks like the Warthog out of Halo, quietly let brice know know. Maybe take some photo's as evidence for the police but don't challenge them, unless your prepaired to fight over it. Even discreetly call the police and get them to take posetion of it until its sorted out with its rightful owner.

Ditto for me, sucks cos the faster something like that gets to market the faster someone like me buy's it. and this is just slowing the process in it's entirety.
I too will keep a watchfull eye for that beast, so much invested looks awesome. hope you get it back

You'd almost figure that the person knew what they were going for, to grab that one. That is so lame.

This belongs to Brice Arnold. He's on a few different forums and this is his own custom made 4wd using the HPI baja as a base buggy. He does some really nice work and I feel his pain.

This car is one of a kind. It will show up somewhere.
