Welcome back to RC! Sorry you broke a part but glad you had tons of fun up to that point!

RPM makes tough suspension arms and I believe they still have the you-break-it-we-replace-it guarantee. Where are you ordering your parts from? I've had good luck with Stormer Hobbies as far as stateside suppliers go. I need to get some stuff to so maybe we can consolidate the order and save on shipping. Jon always lets us know when he orders stuff from HK、 if you're interested in Lipos and BL motors/ESC.

Actually i'll be heading out to RCP on Monday to pick up some lipo batts. I could really use some more battery sticks. i'm stuck with one nimh that came with the truck.

oh, i've already ordered some replacement parts and yes i did get some RPM.

can you recommend some batteries you've had good luck with?

thnks in advance.

RCP has some 4000mah lipos for around 4000 yen. Many of us order from Hobbyking.com and have it EMS'd to our local address...

I don't know anyone who meets out behind the Rocker, most of us are at RCP on Tuesday nights and at the Hill on Courtney on Sunday AM...

Back in the early 90s there used to be an off-road track in the same location you're talking about. Then they built a bigger track by the Foster Fieldhouse and the Kadena track fell into disrepair.

I believe 18SVS is open to the idea of a community RC track. Maybe we could approach them with the idea...

not sure if there would be any interest in another track (considering we have RCP, Blues Bay SCT and The Hill for off-road) and it was pulling teeth getting the one on Courtney, wouldn't want to deal with that on Kadena and we have a hard enough time keeping The Hill alive and well...thanks to Hayden and Greg working on it...
