spongebob, I had some but I got completely cleaned out this weekend. I am working on tracking down some more.

Racin Rev, the arms have a new part number. Also, the shock tower is the same part number. People are just putting the rear tower on the front of the car.

coolrcdad, it shows that it is out for delivery today. I will pm you with the tracking number.

Rev, what it is suppose to do is when you run a locked front differential you can take advantage of the new shock angles to get more steering. There is a lot of talk on this in the TC3 Forum. I personally have no experience in this as I don't race a TC3.

Default New Arms

According to Sean Cochran -

The hole to the outside in the front arms allows you to run the stiffist spring, and still take advantage of being able to set the ride height. He said last year at cleveland, some of the drivers wanted to go to a stiffer front spring, but with the white spring rate at 40lbs., the arm flexes from the shock hole out. By moving the hole out on the arm in a sense you are making the spring tension stiffer with out the flex in the arm.

Don't forget we are offering free shipping on orders over $100.00.

Thanks

Hello everyone! Hope everything is going good. Since it has been a long time I thought I would let you know what is going on.

Take Off Glue, yup they have their own glue called Z-Blue. It has a cap with a pin in it so it is easier to store. I have used it and I am impressed, probably some of the best glue that I have ever used.

Losi XXX-S parts, we got in a bunch of parts and we are expecting more in the first part of next week. Yes the 6 degree blocks are back in stock.

TC3 parts, we just received another shipment of parts for this car as well. The new 2 hole arms are on there way as well, they should be here first part of next week.

RPM Front Bumpers are available in both blue and black.

The LRP Pulsar chargers are back in stock.

The Trinity Carpet Bodies are back in stock. We put the Trinity Nitro Rocket Bodies on sale, $13.50 while they last.

Take Off premounted tires are in stock, we have 22's, 27's and 33's in stock.

We have Ti-Racing Titaninum screw kits and ball studs in stock for the XXX-S, TC3, and Mission. We even have the titanium pivot balls for the Mission.

Fantom Modified Motors are back in stock. These are based on the Yokomo Ti Cans. We have 10 and 9 turns.

Team 1 Tuned P2K2 stock motors with motor tubes are back in stock as are the the Team 1 Hulk motors which are based on the Green 3's from Trinity.

We also have SMC 3300's from G.P. in stock. This is the top of the line packs from SMC that we have in stock.

We also have a few of the Pro Match cells left in stock. These are the Ultra Metal's from Panasonic. Keep in mind that with every battery purchase you will get free battery bars.

Almost forgot, we have the aluminum belt covers for the XXX-S. These really dress up your car and they are made of T-6061 Aircraft Aluminum with a thickness of .030.

Thank you for supporting KT Hobbies.

I knew I would forget something. We have finally been able to get our hands on the MIP Aluminum CVD Bones for the XXX-S.

At least you can look snazzy while on your lid. Twice, I've had a marshall ask to see my chassis after putting me back on four wheels. ( Im not sure if i should be proud or not.. )

Kraig - I just sent you a PM.

Team PRP Megatune Shock Towers are here! We received them into stock and they are now up on the website. I put them on the front page so you may have to refresh your browser to see them. There are three options to choose from and they are as follows.

1. Front Tower

2. Rear Tower

3. Front and Rear Towers

This is perfect if you are looking to get more adjustment out of the XXX-S for all different track conditions. These bolt right on with no modifications required.

A lot of you have been asking for the Fiddlestick and when it will be back in stock. I have good news for you, they are on their way! For those of you that have had them on back order I will contact you to see if you are still interested in them. Don't worry, you can still place your order for one as we should have plenty to go around.
