No not yet, Ill Start Chasing it if its not here by early next week. Id say that its only the size of a envolope so you would expect it to be quik.

Usually, tracking is just a matter of pasting the shipping number into a search field, so if you want to know, it isn't much of an effort

Where I live, customs and sorting is usually swift unless the goods land or hit shore on a friday, but my last package from dx.com spent a whopping 8 days in my local letter center, almost half the total shipping time. Really annoying.

Tracking says it left on the 10th. I paid on the 7th. No more info. So it's on the way lol

So I jumped in to an Xi Sport over a S1 due to me thinking parts support would be better. TQRC seems great, but the don't have the new arms, knuckles, hubs, or rear hubs in yet. In a pinch could I use Zero S parts for replacements?

I've got zero front arms on mine at the moment.

Cool. thank you much. I'm running a points race this weekend and the track doesn't stock parts for it, so I was planning on just ordering extras and then I noticed that no one has them in stock yet.

Yep none available except from 3racing. But as it turns out they arnt all that quick for parts supply. I would of thought that the parts would arrive in the market at the same time as the kits.

Parts turned up today. 2weeks. But I've got spare arms now. I raced last night with the zero front arms, they work fine with a little more push out of the corners but could of been the temp. Also found out that the 416 ball diff fits (not that ill ever use one). Still getting heaps better lap time over the zero and I qualified second with a 4th at the end. Very happy

You're making it harder for me to resist punching that "buy" button on one of these.

I'm going to come down to Canberra for the 4th round of the Challenge Cup at the end of next month, and see if I can have some good success with the old Zero as I did a few weeks ago. If you're going to be there I'll have a look at yours before I make a decision (although I'd much prefer the Sakura Ultimate).
All I got to do is try and remember what setting changes I done to get it to work on carpet, which weren't much anyway.

Cheers
Rob.

I think the ultimate will be a chrissy presant. Or a second one of these.

Does anyone know if the new sport chassis will work as a replacement for the old s model chassis? My nephew broke his but before I buy the original version I was wondering if the new one retro fits. Thanks for any help you guys can give.

The zero chassis is different but cheap as to buy or you could upgrade it to the narrow chassis.
