It will all depend on what spares they keep in stock not really all the cars they can get it. If they can stock what a lot of the big asian carriers have and the options there will be no reason to go out of country and I think a lot of people will start to go back to Yokomo in off-road too if they are going to carry it.

I dunno about that. Not everyone is as bad on carpet as I am. I am fully done breaking stuff too. I have aluminum and plenty of back ups.

Dcj's - Of all the DCJ's out there the Tamiya one are a direct fit and work better than the yok or spec-r ones. $50

Servo mount - $30

Spur gear

Spool cups? - Dont think you will need to replace the spool cups

Graphite parts - Around $40

Thanks for the info.

Don't be sorry. At least try to pay attention.

how could you get the car without tax..

it is illegal for anyone to sell without tax in the European union and if you take the cheaper shipping it will take 4-6 weeks. You could fly there and get the export receipt and get 85% of the tax back OH!! minus the 25 euro or 15% whichever is more processing fee .

Toni is an AWESOME guy BUT i am almost certain the he is not going to get in trouble with the German tax office over a few BD7's .

i am not trying to be an a22hole but i tried and it just does not make sense anymore. A Main will get the cars soon enough and i am sure they will get the parts. it is on both their interests to make it work...

I'm sorry but what you are saying is completely false.
Every company in the EU can sell products without tax which are shipped to customers outside the EU.
It's completely legal, the company only has to declare these outside EU sales on their tax form and keep their shipping receipts.

Also the cheapest shipping option I use only takes 7-10 days to arrive in the US.

Because of the decreased value of the Euro it's interesting again to buy from EU based shops.

Softer topdeck for sure Ks, Helped me at TITC. Soft chassis might be too lazy on high grip though, so maybe stiff chassis, soft topdeck

Has anyone tried putting a rebound hole in your shock caps? If so what size and your thoughts?

Or is everybody driving 64dp pinions ?
