Hi Myron,



I checked into the parts that you have listed and unfortunately they have been allocated to some distributors. I am unable to pull from them and we are showing that we will be getting more sometime next week. It is a little late and unfortunately we do not have the tires available. I could only recommend checking with your local distributors because they are going to be receiving them shortly. If you have any other questions feel free to contact me.

Yeah hpi has one set. My buddy tried to order it yesterday then it was $15 for shipping. $30 for a pair of tires. Not a set a single pair. Go figure.

The Club esc will have an orange case, rather than the translucent charcoal that we are using for our Edge 2S. As soon as we get our cases, we can send a Club controller to RobK for evaluation.

Sweet! It will match an old T-4 I've got around here somewhere.

I miss being able to buy tires form Phil's Hobby for 11 bucks a set and only 6 bucks shipping no matter how many sets I ordered.

Ahhh those were the days.

Hell I miss being able to go to the local shop and buying a set. When I started vta our shop always had 20 sets on hand with a fresh order every week or two. Not anymore.

We're starting our own series similar to RCGT and USGT and could use your advise, so I have a question for you guys...
I noticed on the USVTA page that the USGT rules do not allow belted tires. Why is that? And how can I find out if a racer using x-patterns is using the belted ones... or an ilegal insert for that matter.
