Discount RC store as well as Klinik RC. I think even EA might sell a few items that cross over from the 12th series to the ICON.

Discountrcstore.co_ is the best. I bouight both my Mi7 & Icon from them . Excellent service & very helpful.
I've ordered stuff in the afternoon & received next day (UPS-ground ) to Chicago. Always well stocked & will inform if they're
out of something. . Wish they had more stuff as " Amain" takes a week to get parts these days.

Pros: Consistent to drive and at least for me, quicker than my Serpent SF4, CRC WTF-1 DS, and Xray X1 all on black carpet. Easy battery removal. Able to use mass damper system which is a great tuning aid for different conditions. Good quality. Very durable and low maintenance except front posts, see cons.

Cons: Front posts are very weak and bend/tweak easy. I bought some 35mm aluminum hex standoffs on ebay (or was it 30mm?) and its better, but still not a fan of the slotted setup. Aluminum option 2.5mm chassis is too thick (c'mon Schumacher, give us a 2mm flex option). Must change stock springs for black carpet, way too stiff. Annoying to adjust links and such each time you make caster changes.

Hi !

Tonight I finish the build of my ICON ! I am very happy to test it on the track . I have no problem with the assembly of the kit but I modified some parts like Waitwhat for the rear spoiler... and I removed the stock plastic upper and lower pivot ball assembly for the kingpin and replaced i by Roche aluminum coated pivot balls assembly because I have to much restriction with the plastic pivot balls and because I dont feel it good about reliability so I will post some pics soon !!

I run a lot of caster and yes, the kingpins do bind with the plastic pivot balls. What Roche parts did you use?
