Default TCX arms

Anyone know where I can get some arms? I have checked a bunch of places and all are OOS.

It has been over a month since anyone had any arms. With the way it has been since the TCX came out, I would notcexpect them anytime soon.

Getting the parts you need for TCX is almost impossible.

There are other options, dare i say better ones at that. You can use the tamiya 416 arm, same length and much stronger, along with xray c hubs and knuckles. All are easier to find, but you will need to do a little dremel work.

So why is thre such a shortage on parts for the TCX? I just switched platforms and now it makes me think if I should have went with another platform due to parts shortage. I have enough parts for the Reedy Race coming up in May, but I always want to have more So is thre any word if they are going to get the parts supply back to normal stock??

that is funny...

for the HB stuff i believe they produce stuff in batches and once it's sold out we have wait until the next batch comes out.

So just a bit of advice to all...if stuff is in stock...then don't hesitate to buy a few more parts than you need.
I stocked up on all parts and once I did that....i haven't had to buy another single part.
