So when are the parts going to be available? I see on Horizon's website that things like arms and pivots and stuff are all "pre order."

I have a question about the pieces coming off the chassis for the body are they really needed or are they just more for helping the body from flopping around ,and maybe helping stop the parachute effect ,thnx

have you noticed more breakage up front since you changed to aluminum slider?
I ask because one of my buddies is using it and he breaks spindles like crazy, where I have yet to break one. The only thing I have actually broken so far is ripping the ball stud out of a caster block, but I think that was because it was slightly loose (buggy).
