Anyone have a source for an Elise R/C car? I've seen the expensive one ($300), but other than that, it's slim pickings. Here's one on ebay in Australia, but it's really a cheapo that he's charging a lot for: Elise R/C Car

Here it is in black: R/C in Black

His price works out to about $75 US. A similar one for my MR2 Spyder was selling on ebay recently for about $30. Besides, the guy in AU won't ship outside AU.

Anyone know another source for these, or for some other reasonably-priced R/C Elise?

Call your local dealer. Princeton Sport and Specialist Cars had one in their accessory department. I've also seen a S1 exige that LCU had in stock. The models are out there, you just need to look for them.

Just go to Tower Hobbies. Good prices, amazing selection. They carry HPI products and have the Elise. You can get the body in 2 sizes 190mm & 200mm and can paint & mount them on nearly any chassis (gas/nitro or electric).

Thanks, but that's the expensive stuff! I was looking for something simple and cheap. Actually, I found a guy in the US who had some like the one from Australia -- but much cheaper. I've contacted him to see if he still has any.

Good info, thanks! I think you need to add a battery to that, but those aren't too expensive. There's also a seller on ebay who sells painted car bodies, including an Elise. They don't go for much more than the unpainted one, and he/she does a great job, from what I saw in the listings.

But I think I'm all set, cause I managed to find one of the cheap ones I was looking for. It's the one in my original posting in this thread. I found it from a seller in California for about $41 shipped. She had listed them on ebay a couple of weeks ago, so I contacted her. Regret to say I got the last one. But if I come across more, I'll post the info here.
