OK guys, I have this pickle of a problem. I reason bought a new RC car engine and I just found out that it won't match the 2-speed transmission that I got a long time ago. Now, does anyone know a place that would let me trade in my new and unused engine for another one that would match what I need.

Not sure if they can help you, but I met a VW guy to pick up rims at Apollo Hobbies in Burnaby. It is at the corner of Lougheed Hwy and Production Way.

They had the parking lot blocked off, and had set-up an R/C track.

Thumbs up

Koyo before you give up and throw the tranny on a shelf, there is a hobby store on Broadway just past Bayswater, heading west towards UBC, on your left hand side. It is right next to a tire store.
