Default HPI Trophy Truggy parts???

Maybe you guys can help me out, I have a friend with this truggy and he's having a dog of a time finding replacement c-hubs for the front. Does anyone know of a place in the US or Canada that sells them or another model that shares the same c-hubs? Parts availability for this model S U C K S as far as I've seen.
Thanks

I can not imagine that. HPI is sold at almost every shop.

Nope, I have one and there are no parts for them in the US.

Look for parts online, it is aka the hotbodies lighting stadium.

Here are the front hubs.

Also look for Truggy Flux parts as it's more popular. To me the problem is branding, IDK why HPI is having so much trouble branding these parts as Truggy parts.

HPI had some problems getting the parts here but they are starting to come in. Check out www.towerhobbies.com

Some parts I believe were held in customs too.

Thanks for the replies. He ended up just ordering them from Europe since they're still nowhere to be found here. I think its pretty crappy that they're taking so long, that car's been out for a while now.
