Turbo Joe, I do remember and I GREATLY appreciate it!!!

Its obvious that you are a racer otherwise you would not care! I hope you did not take my post personal because it was meant as a general statement not to be directed at anybody! I am sorry that they do not have any more arms left. KT Hobbies does show almost everything except for arms.

It is odd that arms are basically the main part BO??? Didnt somebody say that HPI sends parts every three months? If that is the case I would imagine that the distributers probably did not anticipate how popular the car was going to be after the Pro3 so they didnt order enough parts.

Didnt somebody post that the shop supporting the worlds had parts on hand. Maybe you could try them?

I love the car and hope that the issues that are happening get resolved in a timely fashion. Good luck to all in their racing ventures.

Looking at the pics from the worlds warmups its nice to see quite a few racers using the new Parma Alfa body. Just backs up what I felt when I ran it on my car.

Hey-hey now Jeff-what you sayin?

I too am glad that the Parma Alfa is doing well. Its too bad the Parma Speed 8 is not IFMAR apporved. But-on the bright side-it appears that Josh's body is on a lot of cars.

Check out the Wolrd warm-up thread on RCTech and then find on the current page a link to the host track I think. I'll look for it and post a link.

Jeff, if you guys are going to Enid Saturday you can check mine out. David and some of the OKC guys were comparing it to David's Losi Alfa. It is definitely different. Fully functional!!

Yeah they are not very good....they depth of the head of the screw is too thick and they stick out past the chassis....if you use them get a counter sink bit to make sure they sit flush.

Hey guys, i know theres a few you here from the midwest, anyone taking their pro 4 to the HOA race in blue springs (Kansas City area) this weekend? It'd been really nice to talk to some guys in person and check out the cars and setups and stuff before I buy one.

I've purchase parts other than Square..and when it comes to suspension & drive train...they were not as durable & precise. Square R/C makes the best parts available.
