I never have a problem helping someone out with replacing a broken part that they don't have, don't hesitate to ask if you need the help.

Thanks for the idea. They look like what I've been thinking of needing.
Now, just to see if I can send it here without paying 3 times the cost for postage

It seems there is a lot of weight being added for most setups. Is this necessary or are users chasing setups and using weight as an easy fix?

The weight helps the car feel more planted. All of the 2wd cars on the market right now are still based around the weight of NiMH batteries, now that we are running LiPo, the cars are just too light. Ideal weight would be at least 1540 grams. The nice part about having to add the weight, is you can place it where you want it, rather than already being overweight and not having as much of a tuning option.

Its all done...... I know, I know "its about time!" Paint up the body tonight and throw in a borrowed esc when I get to the track tomorrow.

This car builds up beautifully and everything fits together perfect The only gripe I have is the rear wheel pins, i cant stand having to worry about the wheel pins falling out when I take the wheels off : Shoo goo here we come!
