Horizon doesn't list anything as discontinued for me....from my understanding,they were gonna be getting it from RC America to sell, who is the sole importer....


As for the supply, couple the fact they are moving and such....plus the lag inbetween importers, added with the fact they have won the every major carpet race for a year.....makes sense the supply is not keeping up with the demand.

Dude, that's simply your LHS not ordering parts. One LHS here has an abundance of Tamiya parts, and the other one I deal with gets stuff in within 48 hours. And how can someone bash Tamiya beacuse they can't get a part that they don't manufacturer, ie a front 415 diff???

Gary;
Who said anything about a diff, I need arms for the LW suspension. If you know of a store or website that has them, please let me know.

Gary, the fact that they don't offer a front diff is a pretty bash worthy point in my opinion.

The parts are available. LHS need to place orders with us. We have a list of Dealers on our website with contact information. If there is not a local dealer, talk with the shop to contact us. Stormer Hobbies stocks a lot of our products.

Currently the only kit in stock is the 00166 which contains the one-way. Any other questions can be posted on the Corally RDX thread on here.

All email inquiries have been replied to as well.

Thanks.

Not really. The car is manufacturered 99% for the japanese market that runs on high grip asphalt or carpet with RUBBER and not FOAM tires. There is no need for a front diff in that situation. Same reason why Tamiya waited so long to make a saddle pack chassis for the 04...in japan it's mostly stick packs.

Jim, Joel mentioned a front diff below your post. LW arms are coming seperately soon from my understanding. Again, being a carpet racer myself, I'm running the original arms so I haven't seen an issue. But I will admit I just ordered the WC Parts kit with the narrower blocks to try with LW arms with.

The FK is NOT going up $60.- in price is it being replaced by a new model that is about $60.- more. We will just have to wait until they announce the new car to see what we get for the extra money.

I was thinking of getting a FK in a couple of weeks or so and now I can't find any one with them in stock. And I thought now with RC America being the distrubutor for x-ray, things were going to get better soon. I guess they have some issues to work out with popularity increase and the new facility and all. I was thinking of getting the Xb8 as well. I guess now I will be looking at the pro4 or the RDX and maybe a X5 or 777.

mtveten - Actually, all Xray/Hudy prices are going up here in the US. Halo Hobbies reiceved information from Xray just the other day that prices for every Xray/Hudy part will increase in price. We also saw that the Fk is no longer on the list but there is an 05 model in it's place.... Just a bit of info...

Talked to Ralph yesterday at RC America. He said that they are completely out of fk's and will not get any back. The new car will be taking the fk's place. And the new cars won't be here until March 1st or later. So once again XRAY's supply sucks.
