Thanks guys I appreciate it.
Has anyone been able to contact HPI and find out what has been going on with the lack of parts. Its getting a little aggraviating having the car and not being able to race it do to a lack of parts available. Its gotten to the point where I've had to break out the rally car again in order to race.

NO I think that the Gears will have some soort of coating on them...similar to what Tamiya has on there Dampers( Floro coat..or something... )

Well, I broke down and ordered my stuff last night. Ordered from 3 different companies, It'll be interesting to see which stuff gets here first, Tower, Speedtech, or PRP. Any bets?

Probably Tower...Illinoise distribution center is closer to you than the other. but then again...Speedtech & PRP ships out the same day..

Default springs

I have a question about springs...I know that you can use the tc3 springs on the pro 4, but, which associated springs are closest to the stock hpi springs. I would like to know so I have a good starting point from the ae springs. I have all of them, and only the stock hpi's for now. Thanks for any info-
