I run 8 or 9T without any problems on the C hubs...have taken a few hits as well. I wish I could say the same about the A-arms!

Why does it matter when you bought your car? I've had an XRAY since Feb of last year, does that mean anything? No! Does it mean anything that I started this thread? No! What is the point of you mentioning when you bought your kit.

You have problems with your distributer but you're placing blame on Mario Hudy. He has no control of the distributers. They (your distributor) routes XRAY products to your region and what they do with it is their business. How they deal with retailers and customers where you are is something that has to be dealt with there (where you are) by retailers and customers such as yourself.

If your having problems getting parts in your neck of the"woods" then we can sympathise with that,but it`s not X-Ray at fault.
Basically the general concensous is that were tired of you acting like a dick.

I don't think usagi hates the car, just the company behind the car. It sucks that you can't get parts, that's really a shame as this is a great car. Have you tried talking to the hobby shops or their distributors as to why this is so? I can't imagine why Hudy/Xray wouldn't want to deal with stores in Japan, or anywhere for that matter. It doesn't make any sense at all (Isn't one guy's money as good as the next?) So, I really doubt Hudy/Xray is selling to your distributors at a higher cost, or is less willing to deal with them.

If you've already tried getting answers from the distributors/hobby shops, or they won't give any answers, I hate to say it, but you'd might as well change cars and forget about this one. There's no sense in running something you can't afford parts for.

Oh, and on the matter of new parts....

Yes, there is always some new part for the car, or a revised part, or whatever... But, nobody is forcing you to buy these. Some may, or may not help you. I'm pretty sure they've been calling alot of the new parts (c-hub suspension for example) "tuning aids" which makes sense to me, as that's all they are. They don't try to guarantee that the part(s) will make you faster, they're just meant as another adjustment you can make if you think it's needed.

Just be glad that they're always trying to improve on the car, instead of ignoring it.

DTM:

I think that Mario launched this part for those 'foam guys' who like to run very small tyres and don't want to crank too their shock adjustment collars, I use the C-hubs with rubbers and don't find that I need the 'ultratune' front shock tower, but in fact If I break it, possibly I buy the ultratune version rather than the stock.

Is like a problem of: What quantity you want to crank your shocks today?

I found that if you are not running one of the big three, HPI, Losi or Associated, that most hobby shops don't carry many if any kits or parts for any other touring cars on the market. I don't think you can blame the manufacturer for a distributor carrying or not carrying parts for the xray. I just got my xray a couple of months ago, and I guess I got lucky to find a really cool shop owner that was will to order the car and some spare parts for me. But like someone said, you might want to check the internet and see if you can get a better deal on parts on the net.
