i forgot what pistons im using but i have a hara cyclone and i beleive its all stock (other than aluminum c-hubs and aluminum motor heatsink thing that i need to switch back to CF). 30 rear then 35 front would be the suggestion then?

im using the stock pullies, so lets say i have an 88s and a 47 pinion, as long as i get to the 4.5 fdr it doesnt matter that my p / s sizes are, just as long as the fdr comes out the same?

lol, sounds liek yokomousa, half my order was canceled due to out of stock items, i wasn't told until 7 days after i placed the order...what service

I guess there is no way around it with Jap cars, i switched to yokomo because I thought parts support would be better. It's the same BS.

WOW is all I have to say. Why cancel the whole order if some of the items are in stock. With their track record the items they could ship right now will be out of stock when the BO one's come in..... I say get with someone and put in a RCMARKET order and split the shipping. Good luck to you!

It's just the US based companies of certain cars. I'm pretty sure RCMARKET can get Yokomo items as well. The only car that we can get a great supply of parts for is the TC5. US based and the parts are everywhere. Too bad the car isn't as good as the Cyclone IMO.

Korey will be the only one that will come on here to help out. If someone from HPI is looking at this thread you guys need to wake up over there and take notice to the problems your customers are having and the up hill battle ONE racer (Korey) has taken on since becoming a team driver.

Thanks for all your efforts Korey and I hope they gave you better than a 50% deal on parts they never seem to stock

I emailed them back and asked that very same question. Bet it'll be at least 3 or 4 days before I hear back from them.

Least they could have emailed me back saying which items were in stock and give me the option of getting those parts then either back order what they didn't have or ship what they did have and drop the rest.

http://www.hotbodiesonline.com/ then select USA or Europe

Don't waste your time trying to buy from HB USA....... after 4 or 5 days your order will be cancelled.
