Looking into getting a 4wd buggy between this and a xray xb4. Reading through this thread and looking to purchase it seems that there is a major supply issue with part as well as kits for hotbodies is this common?

With the Sworkz wing, can you get the predrilled version or do the holes no line up?

I got the no holes and drilled where I want. Don't know if the pre-drilled will line up. I kind of doubt it.

it is an issue currently for a few reasons. i don't think parts will continue to be on back order too much longer. back in dec i went down to the hobby shop and without hesitation got front shock supports and shock shafts. should be getting better soon.

Just installed my aluminum shock caps and don't like the tilt of the shock when everything is tightened down. Seems like the mount needs to be spaced out a couple mm. Rears mount up fine but the fronts don't look right. Are you guys having similar issues?
