I traded a car with a friend who turned around and sold it and it had the old PRP towers on it.
John,
The car was bought on consignment at RacersHaven in Bakersfield and didn't have the blue screws on it, so I don't think it was yours. I got a email from Ben @ PRP and he's COMPLETELY out of ver1 front shock towers Sold the last 2 to Todd Hodge and Matt Francis.
If ANYBODY could help us out it would be greatly appreciated!

Just so you guys know, it isnt the end of the world if you cant run the Tamiya shocks, they are easier to get right, not better on the track IMO.

Can't you just run the stock Losi towers until the new PRP is available?

If you've ever seen Randy's spare parts boxes, you'd know what the ultimate spare parts inventory is.

Is there any way to create more drag brake in the xxx-s? I'm losing a lot of time in the corners when I have to brake.
The tc3s and xrays seem to slow down faster for some reason. I can't figure it out.

If I were you I would just dial in some auto break using your ESC. Just increase it in small increments until you get the amount of braking you want.

I recommend the black belt for every class.. I ran it today with the fastest motor I've ever had from EddieO, and I've run it in stock both with no problems. As long as you dont cut into the reinforcement strands in the belt you shouldnt have breaking problems because of cutting teeth.

Sorry, no pics of the parts boxes tho.
