Default Xpress/Roadrunner MS carbon fiber/alloy edition

I just found one of these, and I'm wondering if there are still any places to get replacement parts. It seems like this fell off the face of the planet. =(

Thank you very much. The people there were very helpfull!

Now another question. I just got it in today, and I don't think my JR Z590M will fit, and I'm actually pretty lost on how it would mount because the instructions are pretty bad. ("Make perfect the tire!" etc, etc)

If anyone can help, It would be much appreciated. Also, Mine is apparently the Junior with some upgrades (carbon plates, alloy shocks/rear outdrives, etc.

It did not come with a foam bumper. Will a more available bumper (like the xxx-s work alright? I plan to run it as a late-model stock car.

Thanks!

more than likely you can use a relatively universal bumper and cut it to fit... something general sized like a tc3 bumper may work well...

as for the servo, the worst thing about that car was the fact that you had to cut off the servo ears to mount them...

what i used to do was cut off all the ears, then servo tape the bottom down with 2-3 layers, and use the clamp piece they make to tighten it up from above, worked pretty good...
