Yep, it's rock solid. If you want to be on the safe side, get spare belts and lay shaft pullies. Maybe a minibumper (that one NEVER break) and the A461 (in the steering, cant remember the name).

It's a nice car, I'm racing one too.

Unfortunately no, I'm located in Denmark, Europe. I just use one of the LHS's around here, which's also the HPI importer. Until now, he has been able to deliver, but if he aint got the parts stock, there's usually 2-3 months delivery time.

Because HPI Europe is very money focused, so they dont want to support small countries like Denmark. Quite arrogant at my opinion. Before everybody raced HPI cars, but now HPI is pretty much out of the scene around here.

Which parts do you need? If it's the bones for the front CVD's, TC3 bones can be used with just a small modification.

Is it the foam bumper or the hard bumper? You probably already know, but the foam can be cut by yourself.

If you dont find a way to get HPI parts, I'm quite sure there's other companies, which got compatible belts. It's in a thread on this forum, but I cant remember good search words...

Get the middle shaft, and a oneway pulley and a front one way. Get HPI blue and Yellow springs those are the ones I used a lot. All those things came in VERY handy. I run a Yoke now. Anyone want my PRO?

Springs depends on tracks conditions....

I still race with the pro2. If you need parts, let me know. I live in Australia, but I can easily grab parts from up to 4 cars.
