Do you mean these?

http://www.teamcracing.net/index.php...mart&Itemid=71

They are available from your nearest LHS who deals with HRP.
Or ....
tcmodels.net
evohobbies.com
rcshox.com

...are some places I have dealt with who may be able to get them for you.

Beware of tc models though. Unless you have a large (ish) order, the shipping will rape you. But their prices are very good!
Marcus at rcshox also makes his own version. Not quite as "low profile" as the carbon fibre ones Team C makes but never the less, just as strong and do a great job. You may be able to get these faster then the carbon ones because of stock.

http://www.rcshox.com/gt8-arm-braces/

Jeff at Evo hobbies is a great guy and will get what ever he can as soon as he can. Will even drop ship from the distributor. (If they have them ...lol )

Hope this helps.

Regards
BM

I made some ultralight ones at one point but now I have a new design that is half the weight and half the price!! they are 25.00 for a set, they allow for more arm flex without the dreaded arm sag. this is a proto pic but the new ones have "RCSHox" engraved in them:

serpent version:

Bingo. And by "full set", do you mean complete Front and Rear? If so, heading to your website.

They will be more than Alpha but will be thicker, will not body tuck. You pretty much have to buy Alphas monthly.


More racers do not run ROAR than do so I am not concerned with ROAR licensing. You would not believe how much it cost to license authentic bodies, this is why there are no GT licensed bodies available now. GT is a VERY small market. There will only be 1 or two ROAR events a year and they will be small GT turnouts. ALpha's are not licensed, Protoform GT body is not licensed, the maclaren replica is not licensed, SWEEP nor is the new X3, it would be foolish for me to spend 1000's of dollars licensing(thats just license cost!!) something that will not sell anywhere near that amount. This is why that rule will never take effect even next year and if for some reason they do what body can you run?

That's exactly what I thought about that roar rule on bodies and events. There are more races than roar will provide. As far as Alpha bodies they lasts way more than a months time of racing. I love a variety of bodies to choose from and await your future idea on bodies.

I Agree.... Your bodies last months because they don't ever get used....


See you soon Pit
