You will need:
The shells drop from turtles all around the Shimmering Flats. Particularly good success has been reported in the north-eastern part of the flats near an old ship, around the coordinates (82, 56). The turtles are non-hostile, which is nice since they gather in a large group there.
My brother is working on a new fuel for his rocket car. He's brilliant, he really is. So brilliant that... I think that new fuel he's designing is strong enough to eat right through the car's chassis!

You will receive:

<name>, do you have those shells yet?
You got them! Thanks, <name>!
