rcmarket.com.hk has most if not all of those parts. It just might take you a day to navigate the site and add them all to your shopping cart.

I guess I should have phrased my question as "is there any plan to support the car in the US." Bummer when waiting for parts from Hong Kong is the only option

edit: Nevermind, my previous statement stands...

Excepted the Bling side, aluminium Hubs can increase the suspension stiffness and get the car more consistant on high grip track conditions. Alu parts are also more durable, especially the threads on the front knucles.
As we all know, the std plastic rear hub can have a molding default resulting in a non symetric rear toe-in. Alu hubs will solve this issue for sure.
But (yes, there's always a "but"), the plastic parts can improve the grip in some loose track conditions as they allow a better suspension flex...

So it's far to be a Bling factor only...

I don't really have a comment on the one way thing... I haven't run one since 2006. I usually always have a spool in my car.

Where did you get the black weight you had in your car?

I got them from my dad. He is the GM at a Kawi and Arctic Cat dealership... so they had some cool black wheel weights . Apparently they have chrome too.

Hi Chris,

Can you please tell me which parts you are looking for? Those that listed above are all option parts for the TCX. (Mainly for the looks i think?)

But still we are very sorry for the inconvenience.
Thanks,

Thanks,
Hiro,

I purchase from Speedtechrc.com.. i like carrying spares for everything. Hinge pins, knuckles, c-hubs, rear hubs.. arms.. and also what Peter listed above. Ive broken a c-hub and a steering knuckle (luckily West Coast had them in stock when i broke because SpeedtechRC was out at the time).

-Chris
