Viper is the main US distributer for ARC and sell to the local shops like TQ raceway, HobbyVelocity and other LHS around the country, so logically they will be sold out before anyone else.

Still waiting on my 2015 black edition. May have to sell this with a butt load of new spares. Need a new ride for the final race of the season.

Parts came in today....

Check the system later tonight. If you don't see something you need. send me a PM. If I can't help you find it, I will find out how we can get it.

We always try to keep things in stock. But some of you guys order 4-5 of the same part -- guess we need to start ordering more!!!!!

Our last Black Editions came in as well. If you ordered from us, you will get notified, if you have it only with a dealer - find out when the dealer will be getting them.

The reduction in piston size was on purpose, the 2013 shocks didnt have enough of a gap, and as a result have significantly more dampening than they should. IMO the 2015 pistons are ever so slightly smaller than they should be but im only talking 0.1-0.15 compared to the gap provided by other brands like Xray.

On the flip side, there will be more sources to obtain parts soon enough.

Josh - for mod try
http://www.petitrc.com/reglages/arc/...dur2014091314/

I did a bit of playing with various springs at the weekend between my two cars from HPI silver equivalents down to Greens all round - found that Yellows all round made the car nicely compliant, consistent and gave my the fastest lap times.
I have the split blocks on the mod car set to widen the track slightly as well.
