Apparently, HB has had difficulty sourcing sufficient Unicorns in order to produce Unicorn tears in the quantities needed for this kit.

It's good to see that Ty Tessmann has signed on for 2014. Hopefully that means we will get some good setups when the D413 comes out.

I have all the electronics needed in stock, I've never raced 1/10 buggy before so I need to do some research on what tires to run on a med size clay track. Most run Bar Codes here but I kind of like AKA wheels and tires, any input? I started racing 1/8 so 1/10 setups are new too me. Besides the tires are there any wheels that last longer than others, or have a performance advantage?

Your best bet is to go to your local track and see what the fast guys are running for tire and foams. Not all clay tracks are the same and even the same track with different moisture in it will change your tire choice so suggesting a tire probably wont help you find the best tire for your track. Sticking with the same wheel and tire manufacturer will get you the best fitment.

Your suggestion makes sense, thank you.....

wow where did you get that info from. considering they have just resigned ty, andy moore, jj, etc. im suprised they could do that if they were "sketchy". awsome scaremongering about a brand unless im mistaken and you are one of the inner ring.

as torrance has already said he will post the info once it is confirmed to save more frustration on the general public, hell i wanna know a date as well but hpi unlike others will release once everything is ready
