these guys are both real solid.

hks has a ton of stuff that is tough to pickup in the states (from many asian manufacturers) and their shipping is fast as all h*ll. but ... you won't know what's backordered until you receive your shipment and it's not there. sucks at first, but i've learned to order in enough time to assess the damage, and leave enough time to place an additional order with tq or otherwise. also, their pricing is good in general.

tq's communication is great, and they have indicated to my buddy that they will stock a wider selection of 3-racing parts as the kits/parts increase in sales. until that happens, i prefer taking my chances with hks first.

Thanks guys. I haven't touched the car since then. I need to get an XRay Sanwa servo arm from a T2. I think with that, my servo will clear the hard top deck.

Thanks for the warning about HKS. I was about to order some "special" parts to do something "special" to my Zero. I'll have to shoot them an email to ask about some parts. If they don't have it... oh well. No need to order from them.

Haha, no... it's different! I'll see if I can get the parts, then I'll share. It might work... it might not. I'll be the guinea pig.

I noticed that HKS lists parts for the X1, but when you add them to your cart, they are out of stock.

For the moment from what i can find, you only can order the new suspension arms front and rear.
Other parts i didn't find yet in the online shops.

We'll see if my parts arrive this coming week. If so, I'll post pics of my "mod"...

Another thing I'd like to do is put the front bulkheads onto the rear of the chassis. But the front bulkhead caps are out of stock everywhere! Bastards!! This should let the rear chassis flex a little more for better traction. I just cannot find the parts to do it!!

Hey Jimmy,

Check the pics of my car.
I beat you to it.
Driven it for a while now and can say the car is more direct but has a lot of overall traction

regards Roy

I saw your pics, but you are just running the top bulkhead caps. I'm talking about the whole front bulkheads. Top and bottom. That is, if the bottoms fit. The holes line up. That is how the 417 and TCX are. Same bulkheads front and rear.
