To be honest, that usually depends on US customs. RCAmerica knows when the container(s) are shipped, but just like it's been for years, they can't say for sure when they will clear customs. I believe they are still looking at 1st-2nd week in November arrival which you can add a day or two to check in the order and sort out backorders and such, then 2-3 days shipping to the hobbyshops.
is LHS arrivals between 11/10 and 11/15.
The last big order that came in was about 3-4 past the expected arrival date if I remember correctly.
If you have a facebook thingy you can add RCAmerica to your friends list. Drew and Bryan are posting updates when there are any. I like that they are doing that cause it keeps everyone (including me
) from having to blow up their phones. That way they can be checking in the shipments faster!!!!
Hey Bryan and Rocco, if you happen to read this, quit jacking around and get my order together!!! LOL
BTW- those asking about parts compatibility- the rear arms will have 3 swaybar link balls instead of two, but from what I've seen and been told, most of your suspension spares are either the same, or they will work. So those of you who are like myself and can't afford to just dump all your NIP spares for $.50 on the dollar, you should be good to go, at least for now. I mean, yea there may be a track you need the 3rd outer swaybar ball arm, but I'm willing to risk it for now...hehe
One last thing- I got a little inside info that a certain Factory Xray driver that already has his T3 has reported it's definitely faster in back to back comparisons... and not just a few hundredths of a second either!
