So I run the smaller hex's yesterday. And the trucks not tipping but the bounce is back and I had to go up to 120% on the D/R to get it to turn and lap times dropped about 2 tenths. I'm running on a tight 80x40 black crc carpet track

not trying to get off topic, -do you mean ActivePowersports RC? I always see them in search results ...yet they seem too good to be true, are they legit?. They always seem to have stuff when no one else does ..even rare items that have been out of stock for ages. Also their prices are always lower than anyone elses. They always seemed too good to be true so I avoided them.

Tamiya - Rc Body Set Team Hahn Racing Man Tgs - 51606 - Active Powersports

$39 for the entire Euro truck body set? ...when everywhere else (if you can find it) is like $60 or more.

Email them first. I have often found they don't have things in stock.

With how much they're sold out everywhere? There's no chance they won't keep producing them. :-)

Default do you love to build kits?

I Do!

so it's natural to paint it up as the ultimate kit company:

Yeah---Active RC website said they were in stock. I got an email tonight saying they were back ordered until late April. I canceled the order. We'll see how long it takes them to return PayPal

Yes, do stay away from them. They are like a 3rd part seller and keep no stock or even update rather it's in stock from there " warehouse". They will hold up your money for who knows how long ( happen to me several times) and there is a whole forum page devoted to their practices.

I had the same problem with Sheldon hobbies show it in stock and then backordered after I bought it. Took a couple of weeks to get my money back they wouldn't answer my emails so I ended up calling them to get it cancelled.
