Yep. It's crushing the potential of this buggy right now. Very disappointed.

hey guys I just wanted to post here because I know allot of people are upset about parts being unavailable. Red Rock Hobbies received our shipment of over 200 parts in multiple quantities for this buggy. We did not get every part as as they are all not yet available but we got more than 80% of what you may be looking for. We have not yet finished going through everything but please PM me with part numbers if there is something you need now and we will do our best to get you taken care of

IM guessing its because you put it straight on the carbon chassis. I think carbon fiber can cause problems with transmitted signals. My receivers have a warning to not mount them directly to carbon.

Mine is mounted directly on the carbon chassis along with my receiver. I don't think I am having any issues, but recently my lap times and count seem off so who knows. Most likely I am just slow.

mounted my transponder to the side of the receiver, my receiver to the rx mounting plate with the bare part of my antenna in the tube and rest coiled up

also had it sitting on the chassis brace, just behind the diff housing for a while
