Default Available in Canada??

I am just getting started back in TC for the winter, and I would love to run the belt version up here in Toronto Canada but nobody has parts. We have about 15 hobby stores that are distributors but nobody has parts on hand, that sucks. Everyone says it will take a couple weeks to order what I need so basically if I break, i'm screwed. And ordering from the UK or states can get pricey... TOO BAD!!! What a sweet car, and I hate driving what everyone else does... all I see at the local track is Xray, Corally, and 2 415's LOL thats it..... How nice would this baby be leading that pack lol!! Any ideas on how to solve my problem, maybe a sponsorship LOL
Sweet Car!!

I have been runing the RDX and racing for the last 6 months and looking for a change of cars. I mainly run asphalt stock, but a near future move I may be seeing some carpet.

I am not looking for BS, just looking for opinions from those that have switched to this car.

Anyone really able to feel a difference in the cars style? Has the wider chassis been looked at as a down side? I feel the car is relativly new, and I understand that not that many, to my knowledge, are running it. I have been told not to waste my money, the car will not go anywhere, that it is nothing fantastic.

Basicly thinking out loud, any thoughts? Have you enjoyed the change?

Thanks

I am happy with mine I wish I had more input but my indoor season starts in a few weeks but to this point I like it I to had a rdx and 415msx ..the thing about kyosho is they don't own 1/2 hte field in mod, and 19 or even stock so u will not hear much till a big name driver gets a car and wins with it ..what i like is the parts are cheep A arms ect give it time and we will see how well it does

None released yet - none on the list of things to come either. Actually the plastic one works just fine if you use two grub screws and take a little time getting the spur aligned.

We have been running the Stallion for 2/3 months now(got them from Japan)...used to run a Hara Cyclone...We have 3 stallions...I have been running stock and the other two Mod...The big difference in this car is the book setup works nearly everywhere(on rubbers on tarmac)I tried different springs /rollcenters etc but came back to stock setup.even putting a 3.5 brushless in the stock setup was pretty much on the money.I am not saying this setup will suit everyone but it suited 2 out of the 3 we have.I am impressed ..the parts are cheap but they are pretty strong..not much breaks...the only weak point is the plastic spool...it tends to break in a prang....but it is only $6 to replace...we found Yokomo BD spool sleves fitted over the outdrives and made them a lot stronger.I would recomend the Stallion over most other cars(I have had plenty) But at the end of the day it comes down to your choice

ok thanks. actually my plastic unit is warped a bit, and after spending much time doing the spur, i gave up. i installed an alu unit from my yokomo sd cm, its a bit heavier than the stock piece but at least its more truer and it doesnt push against the bearing in the motor mount, freeing up the drivetrain even more.
