I'm looking for a Marui Shogun, ideally in the best possible conditions that I can afford, to showcase as a shelf queen. At the same time, I happen to have a Marui Samurai and a Team Associated RC10 Edinger Gold Pan that I could (reluctantely) let go of. I know that chances are slim, but maybe there's somebody there in the opposite situation! Anybody looking for an R10 or Samurai and willing to let go of their Shogun? I don't really know how it works here, if the trades/swaps and sales are based on trust, reputation, paypal or what (first time I venture in this part of the forum9), but I had a look through the topics and trades history and it seems that everybody is happy with it! So why not trying, before I venture on Ebay for something I don't really wanna sell anyway. I know it obviously depends on the condition of the items, but I thought there would be good chances of such buggys having more or less rhe same value (please correct me if I'm wrong!). Here's a little summary of what I've got to trade, then of course in case of interest I will provide detailed descriptions and more pictures as well as answering any questions one may have. The 1986 Samurai is a shelf queen, all original, in good conditions especially regarding the aesthetics. Comes with period correct electronics and remote, bench tested and still fully working. In its many years of life t's been used though, so it's far from perfection but still absolutely gorgeous. The RC10 is a 1984 Edinger edition and comes with original box, manual, diff grease, some spares, and correct Futaba vintage electronics with respective booklets. Original body shell and wheels/tires are missing and have been substituted respectively with a Dahms body shell and HPI wheels/tires, both vintage (late '80s I think) and with their mini-booklet and spare hub adaptors. It's a runner and is also no stranger to scuffs and marks, that being said it's in overall very good conditions. It screams for some tlc: stripping, cleaning, ballf diff tuning, shocks refilling and all that, amyway all the wealth is there for a proper restoration (which was actually my intention when I bought it in the first place). Here's the Samurai and the RC10 So yeah if anybody is interested let me know, and maybe with some patience and proper communication we'll sort something out! One little final twist: I am based in Canada which will not make things easier, though I'm sure it's still doable . Cheers!
I have found an original SRB! It was found dismantled in a shed at an estate sale, looks to be about 90% complete in terms of parts. The odd thing is that the gearbox seems to have some sort of glue sealing it, not much so opening it shouldn't be a difficult task. Would make a fantastic parts car or candidate for restoration. I found the electronics in a separate box, but unfortunately the wires seem to have been clipped. Unfortunate, but they are included if you would like to re-solder or rewire them. Bearings are also included for those that want to make this a running model. As expected the gearbox will need to be shimmed since it has clearly been sitting for a while. I have attached some pictures, and the rear dampeners and the pinion are included, they are just hidden in the chassis tub.

The buyer will be responsible for the cost of shipping. I am located in the USA so shipping within the states shouldn't be to much since in this dismantled state it should fit in a large flat rate box. I always ship with a tracking number if possible. I am willing to ship the item out of country/over seas for my UK friends but the buyer will still be responsible for shipping costs. If a trade is made, we will each pay for the shipping of our own piece and we will provide tracking numbers. Otherwise, payments are to be made via paypal only. So let me know what you guys think, at this time not willing to part it out, if nothing happens here I'll just hold on to her.
