Please fill in the list:

1. Suspension arms
2.
3.
where in VA do you live? I live near harisonburg...

Knock on wood but the only thing I have broke in a months worth of racing is one set of gears on the oneway. The car has taken some serious abuse the past two weekends running mod and has not missed a beat. If you are worried about breaking gears get the diff. I know that PRP will be getting the oneway plate done this month so that will take care of the gear issue. If you are on high bite a pair of Associated blue and silver springs will be good to have. They seem to be one step stiffer than the stock springs. I have had tremendous luck with the kit setup with 40wt oil and a Parma Alfa body.

I had a bit of a bad meeting yesterday, broke 2 C-hubs and a knuckle, a bit annoyed about the first C-hub but the second time when I broke both I had quite a hard crash....

Definitely try and get the steering knuckles, C-hubs, bevel gears and suspension arms.

Thanks guys. So I guess I'll be stocking up with:

1. Arms
2. Knuckles
3. C-Hubs
4. Bevel Gears (but I might put on a diff in place of the 1 way)

How many of you guys front end DNFs are a direct result of not having proper front end protection??

No one is perfect but for the slight weight and 10$ it takes to cut out a kydex bumper you can save your self alot of parts and the embarasments of not finishing your runs.



Both the SDs in the picture have a kydex bumper above the stock stubby bumper and below the stock foam bumper(wich was used as a template to cut it out



Installation of bumper after breaking the car with the stubby bumper. After this went in i race 8 race days before breaking the car.

This should help any TC that mates with boards.

Hey joel,
Are you coming out to race on the 15th?

I am going to try to make it into 19t touring if my parts arrive. If not, I am going to bring my 12thscale along and hope there is enough people to race...

Which touring car are you going to get after you get rid of your SDs?

i would like to but it dont look good. newborn twins got me really busy, im going to race buggy at the end of the month though, first time in about 3 years should be a blast!!!

Dunno what ill get after i sell the SDs. I actually just want to sell one of them ill really like the car. if both were to go i would probably get a pro4.

I heard HPI Challange not limit to HPI hop-ups only. They let you mod your car and can use any brand part for hop-ups. Is that true?
