Me too. I didn't buy the Pro 5 specifically because of parts issues discussed on this site.

Yeah that's what i was afraid of was the parts support, but i bought one anyways and i don't regret it. So now im hoping that they improve parts support.

Hot Bodies become HB Racing. Looks like the first priority for the new owners is to address parts availability. Good news all around.

I don't know if it is coincidence or a sign that things are improving but the PRO 5 parts I had on backorder with Tower since Thanksgiving finally arrived.

Parts will definitely get better. I looked on the new site for team drivers and only 2 parts for the entire pro5 were unavailable. I think they are serious about turning this around and supporting the car, the parts should start getting to normal online shops. So far so good and hoping to see an update with drop towers and short shocks. Keep the rest of the car the same.

I like the purple. That's the color it should be from the beginning.
