Sent you a pm Andrew. I will still be carrying a few bits if you get in trouble - because we are running one and so is Bob - but Metro Hobbies in Melb should have plenty and so should Frontline Hobbies. A set of front arms and if you are still going stock maybe the alternate spurs would be good and maybe a set of belts. I actually cracked a rear arm at tamworth but in years of running Schumacher I have never seen a cracked rear arm before.
Make sure you locktite the pins in teh cvd and you should not need too many bits. Be good to see you in a Mi3

Nothing unusual. A pair of front arms, a pair of rear arms, a couple 114t spurs, and I think the sway bar set...

If you guys have all that in, then I'm not sure what the hold up is, since they put it on backorder a while before the Mi3 even came out. I'll be in there today, I'll have him give you guys a call to see if we can get it figured out.

Can any of you new MI3 owners tell me the distance in mm between the lower chassis plate and the bulkheads? Trying to figure out how big a Lipo I can stuff in there
