Long time lurker, first time poster. Have read [almost] every post in this thread and am finally stumped enough to join and ask for help.
The TCXX is my first Onroad chassis and I've found it to be a great little ride. As I spend most of my time bashing, I've had to replace a fair share of parts and have gotten creative in finding alternates when HPI has been out of stock which is VERY often.
I know the current state of the union with HPI/Hobbico so I wanted to see if anyone has any ideas as my car is out of commish and I'd hope that I don't have to wait unti July.
Couple days ago, I noticed that my main pulley off the spur was stripped and in turn, also stripped my rear belt. I happend to find a new belt so swapped down to the 19t pulleys, switched the belt, tightened it and after 1 run, noticed I stripped the rear belt, the pulley AND my damn diff gear....after 1 run!!! BUMMER.
I have a spare belt but cannot for the life of me find another 20t pulley and Diff case. Really would only need 1 20t pullet as the other is still intact.
Anyone know if there's an aftermarket part that I can use to replace both these items? A lead on a US based reseller with these parts would also be greatly appreciated.
-HPI 68828 - Diff Case
-HPI 68279 - Pullet Set 18t, 19t, 20t
Also, I broke these on the last crash but have found a temp solution. Would like to also replace:
-HPI 68839 - Aluminum steering arm post
Thanks in advance, guys
