What exactly are you looking for? Have you tried E-bay, Froogle? Every time I can't find something at the usual places I get parts, I search around and eventually find it. This is America, if there's a market, somebody's gonna jump on it!

except air filters, 13 and 14 tooth clutch bells, flywheels, hinge pin covers, black wings and fuel tanks. A lot of stores dont have pro kits either. Losi has seriously dropped the ball with parts availibility. Im hearing May 20th they will be shipping parts again. Better stock up when you can.

You can find entire clutch assemblys on ebay. (flywheel, pins, shoes, and springs)

You can also get air filter cleaner... or use some left over fuel to clean your air filter... and then reoil it after it dries. Unless your saying you shreaded your old one.

Ditto to both posts above...most all parts are in stock somewhere (unlike the 13t CB's awhile back)...you could not find those roaches anywhere!

If you cannot find the Losi clutch bells buy the Robinson Racing ones they are better & chaeper anyway.

Who is running the King Headz 7075 shoes? Do you run all four or just two? Or two of them with two carbons? Im running a plus 21-5 just wondering if anyone has found the losi clutch combo for this mill.

I ran my losi clutch for about 2 or 3 race's and switched back to conventional Kyosho/or Mugen 3 shoe's This set-up is much better for me,since im used to it. Im getting alot more grip from the clutch to the bell and the motor rpm's seem's to be more in the powerband im looking for with the 1mm spring's. Btw im running a Plus-5 also.
