Just talked with Hobby Velocity and he has them on order. Just waiting for them to ship from ARC. So I think everyone is in a holding pattern on those. As soon as there is a ship date from ARC he's going to let me know...I'll post it up.

As Mike said, we are waiting on ARC for the delivery. From the original idea - the number of Black Edition kits was expanded. So parts that were originally intended to be a limited number of spares. Were actually used to produce more kits. So now we are unfortunately waiting for some spares.

Good news was the limited edition was more popular than first thought, also came out when a lot of our new friends were first learning about ARC -- bad news was it used up all the black edition parts.

We have the standard silver kits and parts in stock. So does TQ and Hobby Velocity...

Anyone know who makes black aluminum 3mm spacers? Saw the Hiro Seiko ones but only comes with 2 of each thickness, and a few thicknesses I would never end up using... Also heard Xray might have them, but not looking to spend $25 per shim.

Nothing really breaks on this car. It's very rugged. Upgrades are purely an option as it comes with everything you really need. I put this stuff on and I'm not even sure it's necessary tbh.
Low Friction Pulleys
Low Friction Front Belt
Low Friction Rear Belt
Hard Arms for Carpet
Low Friction Anti Roll Bar Joints
Low Friction Ball Joints x3
Aluminum Low Friction Ball Ends x2 for shocks
Low Friction Ball Studs You'll need different sizes of these to fully kit it out.
Titanium Screw Set to lighten up the car a bit. They have a black kit as well.
Lunsford Turnbuckle Kit
Aluminum Chassis for carpet

But like I said, these aren't necessary, just stuff I put on because it's MY car and I'll do what I want to it to make myself feel better

The first things I will get from that list are the low friction belts. Really frees up the drive line.
don't forget to pick up the spur gears for your application too.
