Wow, just saw Losi selling their stuff at Walmart. Please don't let me see any others. Traxxas already sold out and now Losi.

I don't think they (Walmart) are actually selling them. They are just providing the advertisement in their market place. Kinda like the Amazon store. I'm sure they get a cut of the money by advertising, but as far as I know, you won't find a Losi on the shelves in the brick and mortar stores. The ones I saw on the Walmart page were being sold and shipped from a store called "Hobby Warehouse"

Sell out always cracks me up when I here that. They should apologize for trying to maximize revenue. So your going to stop using Losi because it's sold at Walmart. I can see hobby shops being upset.

Spooky IS the LHS..........

His first discomfort came when 'EVERYONE' started selling mini helicopters from gas stations, sporting good stores, 'discount stores'........they carry NO parts and thus after Christmas dozens of grief-stricken parents poured into his hobby shop with sad children in tow............

Serpent Cobra GT took care business once again at the 2014 ROAR Regional 1 Onroad Championship over the weekend in Port Jervis, NY. What can I say, the car was DIALED all weekend and performed flawlessly. Thank you Serpent America and Desoto Racing for your continuous support for this awesome class.

I ran my GT-E last weekend in a race meet here (trophy event) with GRP S5 tyres, performed really well perhaps too well as the local sponsored guys have managed to get the controlled tyres changed from open to Hong Nor / Sweeps only (as thats what the LHS / Wholesaler backing them carrys) What set up changes would I need to counter this?

Andy, again we must congrat you for the result. I have to ask something to you. Are you using the new caster 0 C-Hub? On your setup said that you are using the 10 C-Hub

Is there any reason?

I personally have not tried the 0 degree hubs. But I saw others had tried them with good results. I feel my car has plenty of steering and the steering response is quite good so far. Maybe one of these days I'll give them a try.
