Yes, the plastic arms. I'm trying to buy chassis with them on but not having much luck for the money I want to spend ;-)

I can make up some steering blocks or use the one set I have on another car.

Jeff, I sold all the kits I just received, but will have more in a few weeks. Brent Gottfried bought a couple kits, one to build and one for parts, perhaps you could persuade him to part with one now and replace it later, as I know he won't be running until February.

Ok thanks. I don't really need it right now either but why would that stop me plus, I just need another car to work on...

Yes I have rebuilt all of our current nitro stuff and our Electric Touring cars don't require much work so I need a project. Come on WinterNats!

Jeff, You'll really enjoy the amount of work the P8C does not require thus giving you a higher % of time for the HiTech stuff! Your hole team will benefit while one of you has a blast! Let's not forget the cheaper to run part too.
Ask Garen about a wrap for the trailer!

Yeah it should be fun. I'm looking forward to it. Now I just need to find a Associated Ligier Maserati GT body. There is one on eBay (along with a NIP RC-500) for 2500.00......not
