Punch it/HiRev Hobbies have had so many issues on this site it's not even funny.

Again further discussion should be done but not here.
Thanks for the support

So my original statement stands, Please do not post in this thread any further discussion on this topic.

Racer1812 is definitely one of the best mods here, and is very helpful and thorough in keeping this site safe and friendly. If there is a connection, he will find it and take the appropriate measures, of that I have no doubt!

Tony Newland owns that store. He is an honest guy and local racer here in UT. You can look around in the Schumacher threads and see a lot of people will vouch for his store as well. He just setup the store not long ago maybe why he doesn't have contact information listed.
yea my bad on that one, was being way too cautious in light of recent events. someone pointed out already that its a solid website and I apologized for lack of proper diligence on my part a few posts up.

i am not trying to be argumentative in any fashion when i say this but when someone directly or indirectly pushes their wares in this thread that directly trigger people here to purchase and we discover they are a potentially dubious character, why shouldn't it be discussed here? If it isn't then more people could get potentially duped. After all, arent we all just trying to help each other out in some capacity?

Start a thread in the chat lounge. As far as anyone pushing their wares here, this is not the place to do that either. Any further sales pitches/products for sale should not be posted here, especially by the person or company selling them.I will delete those posts without notice or prejudice.

Just got one of these so I'm in the club now. If anyone is using a Hudy on it, how are you securing the front wheels?

Hi champ,I have been using the Lunsford Ti wheel screws for months,they do fit very tight.But they don't come loose,and are the correct size and thread.I also cut off the wing mount stubs,drill them out with a 2.5mm drill bit,and then use the Lunsford screws to also mount my wing.Looks awesome,and the wing is solidly mounted and more consistent feeling.

Make sure you make some kind of skid plate for the front kickup! The chassis breaks there. I have one to prove it. Looks awesome though!!

Tried out the 21g front suspension block on amain , I moved my reciever to the side of my battery tray and transponder in the middle of the other side pod and 10g under a savox servo , and esc under the rear brace with the battery stop drilled further back 30g rf brass block and I had my shorty moved all the way forward but couldn't get enough rear traction in the corners I moved the battery back and loved it it had so much more steering with the extra weight and with all the rear weight I had tons of traction , and its the best air control I've had I'm sure that my 10.5t geared 75/28 non boost being moved so far forward by the gearing helped also , I am trying to go with as much plastic shims and titanium as possible I'm not sure my weight just wanna be fair with roar and the track
