Fagile.... twice lol. I have to say the car is far from FRAGILE, looks like you have been misinformed mate! In all seriousness though no one here has been complaining about major breakages or inherent design faults, yes the car may look a bit different, but the engineering is top notch, I think you'll agree once you see Lukes car in the flesh

Yeah, yeah, speeling is not my srtong point I think the car looks great, but the wishbones on ball studs and those CVJ's look like trouble to me

Hope I'm wrong.

Oleg adds cars to the website as they are available to be sold, if their are no cars in stock on the site, then there are no cars available to be sold. At this point in time emailing him will not speed up the process. Just keep checking the website to see if stock has been added.

There had been a slight delay in the manufacturing process last week as the wrong carbon was delivered to the factory. This would have impacted availability.

Stock should be flowing again soon!

Sorry no offence meant mate, just taking the piss. I have to admit I was worried about the durabilty also at first and ordered quite a few spares just incase, I'm no Pro and have had a few crashes, some my fault and others "racing incidents", so far only a turnbuckle has bent. The driveshafts look to be made of hi-tensile steel with ECS style in the front and a unique design in the rear, no signs of wear/bending yet. The wishbones are a beefy 3mm carbon, theres more chance of the balljoint popping off before it would break, touch wood. Have you seen one in the flesh yet?

I have received a couple of emails/PMs for a quick list of nice-to-have-parts. My suggestions are:
PRIORITY 1 - GOOD TO HAVE DAY 1
1. A single complete universal (Page 5) - haven’t worn one out or had any failures – typically like to have spares for essential drivetrain components.
2. 1 set of either bronze, round or c-clip bushings (Page 5)
3. SPR07 – E-ring. Very tiny and critical to keeping the clips/bushings in place
4. QTY 1 – C04 Arm – haven’t broken one to date but a good just-in-case
5. QTY 1 – P04 Lower Hub Mount - could elongate on serious crash
6. QTY 1 – P01/P02 – Specialized to the A700 and critical to front/rear suspension
7. QTY 1 –Ball End Set – Not specialized for the A700, Kyosho offer similar and upgrade HARD ends.
8. QTY 1 – Long Turnbuckle – the suspension has to have some place to absorb collision. Have bent/broken one of these.
9. QTY 1 – Short Turnbuckle – same as above.

PRIORITY 2 - UNLIKELY YOU WILL NEED RIGHT AWAY – BUT IF IT GOES BAD, YOU ARE PREPARED
1. QTY 2 – B106RS Bearings - haven’t worn one out or had any failures – typically like to have spares for essential drivetrain components.
2. QTY 1 – SPR01 – haven’t bent one – could potential straighten if needed
3. QTY 1 – SPR02 - haven’t bent one – could potential straighten if needed
4. QTY 1 – P09 – frequent changes to suspension might wear plastic part
5. QTY 1 – Gear Diff Rebuild Kit – follow Olegs modification instructions. Surely may not have to rebuild a rear-installed gear diff. But if you run a front gear diff with putty – it might wear faster than the rear.
6. QTY 1 – Extra Spool - haven’t worn one out or had any failures – typically like to have spares for essential drivetrain components.
7. QTY 1 – AT04 – Drive Shaft - - haven’t worn one out or had any failures – typically like to have spares for essential drivetrain components.
Good luck!

Great list Mike. Agree on all parts.

Thought I might add that the gear diff gears are Spec R and I highly recommend upgrading them to the black carbon type as well as doing Olegs modification.

I hadn't heard this before, not that I'm doubting but, can anyone confirm this?

Thanks,
Ethan
