Default Does US Customs have a new hobby?

I can't get any xray parts and it seems every car not made in the USA has replacements stuck in customs. I hope they're having fun!

I've been trying to get a swabar for my T1R, and just found out thru my LHS Thursday of last week that Horizon is now distributing X Ray stuff. It'll take a little time for them to get everything squared away I guess.

If you or anybody you know is having trouble locating XRay parts, send an email to [email protected] and they should be able to point you in the right direction. It's my understanding that there was a major backlog in getting the parts these past few months, but it has recently been cleared up and things should be going fine from now on.

Sell the xray? What a crazy thing to do.

As was said earlier, Horizon is going to stock both XRay and Hudy. They have indicated that they should all parts in stock within the next week. If true, then local hobby shops should be able to get parts easily, without having to deal with a single source of parts.

I hope so, in the past 6 months over 40% of all orders have been on back order, off course then they deleted all the back orders from the computer, supposed to have been a computer glitch.

Yeah, it does seem like US customs have a new hobby...they are probably enjoying the Alex Racing products right now with the Xenon Racing conversion kits...hahahaha. (j/k) Hopefully they get through the inspection soon and send the package on its way to us

I've had the same problem with TC3 parts. several shops in our area are out of basic stuff like A arms and body post. The parts are on order, they just don't come in. I figure the parts go towards RTR kits for Santa.
