Does anybody know if the shocks from 3-racing come filled with oil?

I opened them up and there was only a small amount of oil in each one.

We are so sorry for the inconvenience. We are thinking about having "buy HB" on our web site just like the "buy HPI" on HPI web site. We understand that there is some difficulty for getting parts.

We will try to solve the problem as soon as we can.
Thanks.

Blue replacement parts are the hardest to get. At least in the States.

What you hear is true. Now we have the 18T drive pulleys and belts. (both locked and one-way) They should be available around late this month or early Oct.

thanks,

The new pulleys are better for getting mod gearing right on tighter tracks. The original pulleys are 16t.
