I was lookin through an older rcca from two years ago and spotted the ds. I looked on tower and they dont seem to carry it, but i figured someone else might? Is it still in production?

I dont know but the new Gameboy DS is out. :)

No, it is no longer in production. It was basically just an rc10 made into a touring car. Im sure if you looked, you could find one new in the box though.

shucks. Are parts still being produced for it?

I don't mean it's a dog!! LOL....I mean it's made up of different RC10's parts.You should have no trouble finding parts/upgrades. Basically,(and I may be wrong, as I've never had one) it's an RC10 Tub chassis (nitro or electric) set up for on road-running (parking lot racing) with shorter shocks, foam wheels and tires (different arms? someone else know?). I know the nitro DS was (almost?) the same chassis as the original GT.They did come with one of the coolest Mustang bodies ever though........mmmm.................Powerade....... .LOL

The reason why I ask is because ive got an original rc10 thats set up for carpet oval, and just the other day i broke the arm off spindle tightening the turnbuckle. - the parts are so old theyre very brittle. Since i still race the car i wanted to get a set of brand new spindles from the ds since theyre the same thing just stronger. How long ago did the car go out of production?

I had built a nitro version when the electric version first came out (converted a GT) When the nitro version came out it had a shorter chassis than the GT but the electric version used the same chassis as the RC10. Have you tried associated's site? I think they have the manuals there with exploded views and part #'s
