Yeah, I contacted HP and Andrew was very helpful, they sent out the missing parts to me today. Good customer service.

I received a new set of slipper pads and shock collar O-rings today thanks to A-Main and I already have them installed. My buggy can now be tested. I'm still not sure about the ball diff, but I have nothing else to run right now.

I just need to wait for the next practice/race day and I will see how this thing runs.

I have not had a chance to test mine yet, I made it half a lap last weekend before my receiver decided to give up the ghost. Hopefully I get some testing in this weekend.

I ran my V3 last night at practice and it all seems to work well enough. My electronics include a Reventon R speed control and a Turnigy 7.5 motor. I have a shorty lipo set to the rear and the buggy has plenty of power for my small indoor turf track. I dialed back the throttle to 80% to start just to get a feel for the buggy, but later turned it up to 92%.

Not a perfect night though as the bolts holding the front rear suspension block came loose and a wheel with the arm dropped out. The plastic hinge pin insert is damaged and I'll need to find new ones. So far no luck anywhere.

Here are a few places. Amain is out,
http://www.hobbyprousa.com/66480516-...n-pivot-balls/
http://www.hobbyprousa.com/66400566-...achined-black/
http://evohobbies.com/66400566-rear-...ned-black.html
http://evohobbies.com/66480516-machi...vot-balls.html
http://www.casterracingparts.com/ind...product_id=695
The white ones are out of stock at caster.
If you have a choice get the white ones they are a little better. If in a pinch I believe a durango one might work. I had a guy borrow one from me to use on his durango and it seemed to work.

I tried Hobby Pro, but they want $25 USD to ship me $10 in parts. Not going to happen.

I registered at Evo Hobbies, but cannot update my address as I reside in Canada and the form only accepts USA.

Will try Castor next.

I need parts and need them shipped USPS to me in Canada. Any help from folks here is greatly appreciated.

Send me a pm if caster doesn't ship there, I have a set of unused black ones I could sell you (they are loose not in packaging).

Oh, try emailing jeff at evolution hobbies. He might be able to help you out even if his online doesn't offer international sales.

There are several v3's here in Northern California that are always up front on that type of surface . They perform very well out of the box and customer service is top notch .
