Lightbulb Parts that are in stock Canada or US

If anyone can provide a link to a front shock tower mount HBS112773 that is in stock please post here as well as the aluminum shock caps.Heck I can't even find a hotbodies t shirt.

GOOD LUCK Boostgod.

Hot bodies / hpi

Get your act together! If you want me to buy a 2wd buggy or anything else for that matter please work harder to provide part support for your high end racing kits. Nobody likes owning a $500 paperweight that can no longer compete for points in a racing series due to awful parts support.

I don't know why the after market companies aren't seizing opportunity here *cough*MIP*cough*. Make some axles, towers, and shock shafts. They already have the ability for towers and axles and I'm sure shock shafts wouldn't be a big deal. Come out with a bypass kit for the car and design a couple spur gears. I'd pay for Teflon coated shock shafts.

I have a set of front shock shafts that I'd trade for a front tower.

Welcome to the club. I'm probably going to miss my third race in a row. And even when I do order parts I'm getting this crap. Paid priority and it's been two weeks.

I may have a line on of these kits for next week, if not I may go with zx6. Starting to grow tired or waiting and looking at how many of you are having parts trouble scares me a little.

Nvm my lhs just called mine will be there early next week. Towers date is pushed back because the backorders were more than what came available.
