Looking forward to running mine again tomorrow.

Maybe go to www.rcmaker.com.au and look at the stock levels

Frequent out of stocks of parts are not just a US issue.

Ran 7 packs though the +9 6061 aluminum arms this week.... they worked great! I did a few runs where all i did was hero laps in an effort to create crashes, and they survived unscathed.
Don made me a set of +8 and +9 7075 aluminum arms to try. 7075 is ~twice as strong as 6061, so they should be indestructible.

Both...I ran a MM and it was amazing. Kyle ran a RM car (and won 17.5). It was a mix across the entire team.

Check the holes on that motor can. They’re offset to sling the motor down low but you gotta put the tabs up for it to work.

if you wanted to buy 250 pcs / ea (500 / total) then they would be available. that is basically the minimum quantity needed for parts like this.

the changing grip levels (now lower) of latest black carpet tracks in the USA might warrant a purchase / manufacturing run. although this is TBD.
