Yes I seen that today. He had two cars with him, one had 2mm and 1.6 top deck and other car was 2.5/2mm top deck. I know after 4 days of practice at our track he said that 2mm was better (and our track had more grip than birds). I didnt realize he ran a different car at the Snowbirds than the one he settled on here in practice but apparently he must have.

Is there a shortage of the parts, will retailers get more soon? I won't be able to race for a few weeks, but right now I can't practice or anything.

I'm sorry to hear that. When I spoke to RCA about 2 weeks ago they were expecting a shipment in about 8 days or so from that point. Have you tried speedtechrc.com, tqrcracing.com, nexusracing.net, stormerhobbies.com or amainhobbies.com for availability?

Hey guys, just got myself a T3'12 and was just wondering how to the plastic shocks hold up in crashes. Do they pop off easily and is there a true need to upgrade to aluminium parts?

Cheers for any input provided.

Three hours into the build and I'm loving it.

They don't pop off nor break easily. Now that I think about it I can't recall ever breaking a shock body or needing to replace one from fatigue/failure. The only reason why some of us run the aluminum shocks is because they generate a bit more overall traction since they have a piston hole size of 1.1mm versus the 1.0mm piston hole size of the composite shocks. So go ahead and stick with them you will be okay.

Default new centre servo mount

Hi,

Has anyone tried the new centre servo mount that xray have just released?

Do you actually notice any difference in handling with it on?

Cool. I went on Amain and Stormer, didn't know about the others. Thank you!

what parts are you looking for? sorry no time to read back in the thread .
This:



I'm happy its a popular car, and I understand that sometimes parts just get used up without time to restock. I'm not butt hurt, I would just like to fix my car. It was kinda a freak accident. One of the spotters stepped in front of the car... he said I hit his foot so hard he felt it in the back of his skull! I'm very impressed with the durability, now I just need to get more steering.

I tried using the spool up front, and it just didn't perform on the asphalt track we ran on. I switched to a ball diff; its better but I still prefer the one way in my Pro 4. I figured carpet is what they had in mind for this thing. I used the suggested asphalt setup, still no good. So last race day, one of the better drivers from out of town came out to "school us" He whooped us pretty good, and used a spool doing it. I'll have to bug him for his setup, he had all the steering he could need.

Looks like RCAmerica just got their shipment in yesterday or today, so hobby shops should be getting re-stocked by next week.
