I know they moved to another facility over the summer. I doubt they will be closing down soon. It looks as though they are doing good business with their drift products.

It seems that they are no longer supplying parts to their drivers but I don't think they are closing.

R/C related rumours are usually true rumours IMO.

If they go out of business Asso will back up for the US customers since they have a longtime relationship, i think. Otherwise there is always the internet to look for parts overseas like Hongkong or Japan based shops.

Humm, seems like those used to be full ride drivers are spreading the rumor. Apparently, they are sending parts to paying customers including partially sponsored drivers.
