I did the same thing - I placed and order on Monday morning (like 1am EST) and it shipped out on Thursday...

I ended emailing support@hpiracing.com - then emailed back and forth with a very nice and informative lady named, Gladys (who handles all the web ordering). She told me that I would have received the tracking info by thursday - but I didn't get it, so I emailed her on Friday and within 5 mins she emailed me back with the information...

PM me and I'll give you her email address - I don't want to publically post it here

I'd have to say the HPI/HB order processing is a little "slow" - an order received on Monday "should" have been shipped by wednesday, not Thursday. But then again, any time I've ordered directly from a (chassis) manufacturer, they ship slowly not like a online shop

This is not applicable here, but I think the fastest shop I've ever used is rckenon.com - I've ordered at 2pm eastern, and got a shipping notice by 5pm eastern now that's SUPER shipping speed, and can't expect everyone to ship like them - but it would be nice

hi there!!

I,m new to RCTECH but i,ve got some questions.
I,m the proud owner of a hotbodies cyclone TC but on my local indoor track
i,ve got no grip in the back when i go through a fast sweeper turn.
steering in is no problem but when i release the throttle the back comes loose
im using the standard stabi,s and springs, the droop in the back is 3 and in the front 4. the tires are sorex 28,s.
If someone has a suguestion im al ears!!!
I must mentioned that the here in the Netherlands al have poor grip!!

thanks already

sounds like you have to much front bite you should actually put youre droop 5 in the front and 4 in the rear also go with a thinner swaybar in the rear try these 2 things first then if you still have troubles tweek youre setup with a little thicker oil in the front and with shock positioning bringing out the shock makes them harder putting them down makes them softer hope it helps and another thing i tryed was i got my hands on some tamyia 3 hole pistons and i use a spool not oneway ,try these things do one at a time, there just basic set up changes .

Thanks Dude!

Wil see if it works
by the way i,ve also noticed that the old suspension make the the car more stable on carpet then with the new suspension arms or is it my imagination?
i mean with steering in corners.
Stil its a unbelievable good car I won my first race with the new car straightaway unlike some other brands. stil it has one weakness and that are the new suspension arms, they break so easely but on carpet only and not on asphalt

you are right the break alot easyer than the older ones ive broken 3 rear arms and the hingpins on the hub all on the left side and i am going to try the old arms to see if the car is more stable with them but i am not sure .

If you drive indoor with a high grip track i would try the old suspension arms
but if you drive on a low grip track then use the new ones!!!
On asphalt i always use the new types because they give more steering
but that,s my oppinion

They are the same parts from a pro 4, so they kept the hpi part nyumber for them.

2 deg caster blocks are 73517, and 6 deg is 73519.

Steering knuckles... I know the xray t2 series steering knuckles fit and actually have a longer arm to them. You just have to run the forward hole on the steering knuckle to get the same geometry as the stock steering knuckles.
