It's kinda weird that Traxxas doesn't sell this as a kit anymore since they still make most of if not all the parts. :/

You will have a new SRT when done. Cool build!
Traxxas still offers the parts because they're really good about product support. But they still want their old vehicles to fade out, so they can stop stocking old parts someday. Offering a kit would just increase the number of running SRTs that need replacement parts.

but at the same time they still use most of the srt's parts in other cars, so it wouldnt be all that bad on TRX to re-release the srt especially since they are so sought out

admittidly in the black plastic, but yeah the nitro rusty (or was it sport, or are they the same?...) uses 99% of its running gear

srt's get bought as soon as they are put up on ebay, craigslist, or anywhere you can find one. A lot of people must still want them

I think the continued desirability of the vintage traxxas cars stems partly from nastalgia as it does the vintage rc market as a whole but also i think some of us die-hard traxxas fans want to stay in the family but want something more then what the current lineup of 2.72 cars can offer. I for one love my resto-modded srt and trx-1 both are very dated racing chassis but both were/still are competative. They are light and rigid and as adjustable as any club racer could want. All the good things traxxas has done with none of the rtr-reefer madness
