You won't beleive this I have only ran the car one time!!!! Been waiting for 2 weeks on my parts to no avail. Plus UPS lost the package for a few days so it took all this time to find out it was on backorder. What a [email protected]%&).

Steve as normal comes thru in a pinch. Package will be here by 10AM.

Really sad I only ran it one time. It should be better this time out as I will have nice fresh tires and a new bearing. Found one that was seized in the rear hub. No wonder the car was a little loud when I would free wheel the car on my pit bench. I will have it all ready for Saturday.

They are the one for the Yokomo SD. Speedtech R/C has them on their website. I had some on my R3 and they look and work great. A total direct replacement with no modifications needed.
