G'day Kris,I can help you out with most of what you need.I have a set of both front and rear 3 spoke rims for your Bosscat if you like,they are in very good barely used condition (no scratches etc..) but I dont want to split this set up so its all 4 corners on offer.I have a few sets of the 1128 rear arms new in packet but no molded spoiler im afraid.I could also supply you with all of the necassary hardware for your drive shafts too (all new loose items).Your welcome to the lot for $30usd + postage.Cheers-Jason.

Hi Kris, The rear HDF wings are available from Schumacher still, if you have problems finding the original one (which you may, they are very rare now)

I reckon the folks on here or TamiyaClub are your best hope mate.

It may be worth a call to Schumacher though as the last time I enquired they still had Shells and Undertrays for the Bosscat.

For reference the wings from ProCat, and Cougar are very similar to the Bosscat one.

Hehe.. We don't part easily with our alloy rollers on here! 

I have two sets, but they are under 24H CCTV surveillance!

They do come up from time to time mate.. if i see any, I'll drop you a line

Hi all

Just thought Id let you all know, when you buy the current bodyset from schumacher it comes with the original Bosscat/Procat wing the swept back version with the side plates, thats what I received when I got mine two weeks ago and its exactly the same as my NIP Procat bodyset

I think you will be pleasently supprised Kris when you receice your new bosscat shell!

Scott

On another note

I currently can get hold of the alloy roller drive shafts and they are 25 each from a certain modelshop I got to (IM NOT TELLING YOU THE NAME!!) so as far as I can tell 50 for a set is a good starting point for how much they are worth (NOT CHEAP)

Yup I know 5041.. Moulded Plastic, like the Yokomo ones.

I still see them in model shops.. I'd try ringing some shops up mate, you're bound to find one.

About a year ago i found a shop with many vintage parts.

i bought as many parts as i cought .

there  were also 4x rollerdriveshaft (U817) and 6x (U854) the ballraced ones .

i could buy them for 12 pounds each (a bargain)

but since then i only found only set.
