dave, square castor blocks are 5*? where are the best places to get them?

has anyone tried the 3* castor blocks? i've got a feeling these will be better indoors than out. i should have mine mid week.

The Square ones are very hard to come by since Square has discontinued the Barracuda line of products... I have seen a few in a couple of Tokyo shops....RC Champ and Pro-Shop Futaba they go for about 25$ and the colors that I have seen is Blue and Red only...
as far as the 3* C-hubs Have not used them ... My track is a very HIGH BITE one and I mostly use the 5* or 7* ones

There will be a few good things going for the R3 this year... I think that the R3 used will be hard to find ... but you might keep a eyeout on the for sale section too
