Default OVA Products

Does anyone know where you can buy OVA products in the U.S. or that will ship to the U.S. with an english website?

Thanks

I would guess you have to try an import shop. Maybe ask that Control centre guy on here? He is out of Hong Kong though, you might even have to try Japan.

A local racer at our track is looking at one of those Ova cars too, but he has the same problem, no idea where to order it from.

Some OVA products are available thru California R/C. I have an OVA Inqubass but I don't run it because it is too nice. They have on occasional car in stock but OVA changes their cars so much I don't know how current they are. I tried Control Centre the other day for an OVa T4, they did not have it but they did have the Alexx barracuda. Different cars but nice nonetheless. The number for california r/c is in Car Action sometimes. I don't know if they have a site. If anyone has any other info or pics of the car post them because they are sweet cars.

California R/C? I heard that they were out of business? I bought some stuff there a long time ago. They had good prices and a unique selection. It's to bad they're gone now, or are they??

the last time I called them was about 6-7 months ago. They had the parts then, but things change.

Thanks guys. I'm just looking for some of there parts, like the tire balancer and such. Also, on OVA's website, it looks like they have a conversion for the Yokomo to put a TC3 steering rack on it. Looks interesting (http://www.ova.co.jp/jpg/ass.jpg)

I bought an OVA T4 last December and It's a pretty nice kit. The aluminum stuff that comes with the kit is anodize black, not silver color like in the web site. Comes with same arms as the Inqubass. I bought all replacement parts and all the hop ups that they had for it at the time.
I ran the car at RCCAR race only in practice and it handled really good.
Anyway, you can try to get it from Hong Kong if you can but they have to order it themselves. They mark it up from the yen that's on the box in HK$ so it's not a bad deal. But I don't think that any store will have it because of the price of the car.
I bought mine in Tokyo, Japan. $308USD

Mo..

Why don't you try asking Billy at SWR? I am sure he can get a hold of one for you.

アソシリンケ?[ジユニット ヨコモ

Is there anyone that can read japanese? What does that mean?

Are you sure it is for the yoke mo, it looks like it wouldn't fit, as there is a middle hole , I can't see anywhere that it would fit...

If you have the Japanese character set installed, the page will show those as the correct Japanese characters.
