I would think you could pick up all the parts you need from one of the ebay chop shops parting a new buggy champ kit. Just google rough rider, buggy champ, should give you tons of pics.

You can use all the internals from the new re-release on the old car. Slightly different moldings - but work.

Original RR was released in November of 1979. There were 4 versions of the chassis. Most common term for these buggies is SRB (Special Racing Buggy). 3 versions used almost identical suspension and chassis set up - they were the Rough Rider, Sand Scorcher and Ford Ranger. The Super Champ was released without the radio tub. It employed a "top deck" style chassis with a large rear monoshock suspension sytem. There were more differences, however they would take hours to write about -and the information is freely available at tamiyaclub.com and several other sites around the world. You can even get a reasonable description on Wikipedia.
