I know what you mean... I bought 2 more because the deal is too good. It's still a great car regardless of being discontinued.

It seems as though parts are drying up faster than Id anticipated!

I find it amusing that there are still cars on ebay, some for $170 and others still at $399. I should email those retailers and explain that they're never going to get full price for a discontinued car. There were lots of parts around until recently but the supply is going away quickly. I should be ok for a while since I have 3 of the DETC410s.

Now that you mention it, I remember hearing about that. Glad I didn't step on that land mine, I have enough discontinued vehicles that need spare parts.

On a side note if u want to use the dcvs in the xray front knuckles you will need a 5x10x3 bearing from associated or any other company to not have it tight and bind up

I still have the old HPI/Exotek Cyclone TC but was able to find Pro 5 parts that fit. Too bad HPI seems to have disappeared too. That one may finally have to be retired.

The Pro 5 is a Hot Bodies vehicle. They are a separate company now. You can probably find parts through HB Racing, once they get their supply chain untangled from HPI.
