Your LHS should be able to order the parma and get it in within a few days of ordering...

for the PDub check outthe PDub racing thread on here and I think the website is Pdubracing.com

My mate has an XRAY T1FK05 and its forever ending up with 3 wheels after a small coming together with the board. He doesnt moan though as he ran a pro 4 before and every time he broke an arm on that, he had to buy a pair so he ended up with no left arms and 10 right arms when he cleared his spares box!

Dude, maybe your friend should stop hitting boards and get a better bumper.
Thanks for making my point though.

No problem dude. Seriously it is funny to see him clear the trackside shop out of arms for his xray!
He is a good driver, just seems to run into bad luck when he gets near slower cars and ends up in the wall. Mind you, his lime green and orange shell is a bit distracting when its on your rear bumper. I suggested black for his next shell, like a stealth bomber so they cant see him coming!

You americans love your bumpers! Guess the tracks stateside must be harder on the cars! I broke an xray driveshaft today, combination of 19T a spool, small track and a lapse in concentration! Snapped it clean off where it joins the axle Not had much of a problem breaking c-hubs or anything like that though, in fact i havent broken any! The things i have broken have been fairly obscure, rear shock tower, rear and front belts, and the front bumper hold down as well as a couple of body posts.
