anybody know what other pistons may fit inside the hotbodies shocks? (Tamiya, Losi< etc....) It's been like pulling teeth to get parts around here. I don't want to place an order out of the states just for some pistons. My LHS has placed numerous orders but still no HB shipment. Wake up guys. It's only two days max to ship to Sacramento. Hard to support a car if people around here can't get parts. Great car but support is lacking from the US side.

not changing cars...it's just a shame that the local hobby shop places orders and they are never filled or shipped in a timely manner. I love the car and I'm not changing but must I really place an over seas order for some frickin' pistons???? What good is having a US location if everyone still must order over seas????

Its not like every part you buy has to be the same.... There is very few parts that are hard to find for this car IMO......

I'm just trying to support my LHS but there has to be something wrong if HPI/HOTBODIES is in SoCal and we are in Sacramento and can't get anything. If my over seas order will get here before and order in my own state then that's very sad How much is EMS shipping usually run???

EMS shipping for parts is not much, like $15-30. But if your ordering stuff like power supplies, chargers, etc its about $50+.

yes but they don't show most of the parts that I'm looking for. I'll just place my order tonight over seas and see when it actually shows up.
