King, T-bars they ship for as spare parts where defective and we had to send it back. This is the reason for the shortage. We got some in but we had to fill the backorder fist on a first come first serve basis. Stormer is getting some.
Sorry for any inconvenience this can create. We have another shipment on the way so we are going to be in really good shape as far as spares and kits

Well, everybody loves a photo.

I figured I would give one a try too, I kinda like it. Here's a few pics, clean and before the racing, and then how she came off the track after the main with the body. Ended up running 5 packs of practice, 3 qualifiers and the main. Missed the first qualifier because I was still building the car at the track.

How'd it work? Well, that body was on it the whole time. I plan to run it at some more events.

KO 949 wasn't centered. I ended up with a JR3650 like a few others.

Yeah!! I love my new S120!! It's the most expensive 1/12th car ever produced but once you build one, you will understand why. The design and attention to detail is like no other 1/12th I have ever built and I have built just about all of them. I ran two weekends of racing and the body looked like it never was on the track!!!

It does have one weak point. The T bar needs a redesign and they need to do it quickly. The T bar needs to either be wider or it needs a four screw pivot ball cup instead of a two screw pivot ball cup at the rear. Making the T bar wider would be the easiest but then they would have to move the batteries out away from the center line of the car and that would require a new chassis. Right now the two screw pivot ball cup makes the T bar very fragile due to very little T bar material around the rear pivot ball. The two screw pivot ball would work fine in the front of the T bar but at the rear, where most of the movement happens, it's just too weak. I am going to try and cut out some of my own T bars that use an Associated rear pivot ball cup. LISTEN UP SERPENT!! Just make all of the new T bars with a four screw rear pivot ball cup.
