M5: I am 100% sure that you CAN'T buy any Traxxas parts in HK.

its not a problem for todays world...
I'm trying to get the kit/ traxxas 4-tec pro limited edition, can you help please?

What makes you think its not a good car?
Because the name is Traxxas? Or because no one here have a 4-Tec?

M5, when you get the traxxas... willl you race it?

if so, that would be cool...everybody is probably racing with serpent or mugen...

you will be different with a traxxas...

nice...

M5: i agree with TRF, why would you get a car thats not even popular in hk, or not even for sale in hk? you have to waste money for the shipping and handling, plus tax and all the crap...and im telling you that car isnt going to be cheap!

what happenes if you broke something and need spare parts? you need to, then, order it from the states which is going to take a month or something like that...its just a waste of time and money....think about it!

to all: do you guys buy a car just because its "just too cool" or its limited production, OR, you buy that car because it has good performance and high potential?

999, what I said to M5 is maybe he wants a "DIFFERENT" car to race with other people...

But M5, buying parts will be hard for you....

yes, you can find the parts...but how long do you have to wait to GET the parts...that is the case...

Hope i helped you...!!

Fender Mender is "Shoe Goo". They are same thing.
Sorry Manticore- I've been in the States for the last week.... just got back and it's RAINING!

I'm running white springs front and back. Fully flatten on the back so it is soft... however, this is the same setup I have on my old T1. I may try some yellows if I get no joy with swapping the back end.... unfortunately it looks like I won't be finding out this weekend

I think its very hard for you to get new kit. Tamiya has stopped the production of the kit. Perhaps you need to get a lower version and do the upgrade yourself.
Mars- Have you tried the normal F103RS chassis with the optional upper deck which extends right up to the steering servo mount? How does this compare against the carbon Le-mans chassis?

I found the upper deck to be the most noticeable upgrade for the F103RS chassis, it gave the car some SERIOUS steering and allowed me to tune the rest of the car without accounting for the chassis "flex" factor... which is the normal thing that turns everyone off F1! However, when I looked at the carbon Le-man chassis I think it is somewhere in-between in terms of flex... although I have not run the Le-man chassis before.

I still have a Tenth Technology Predator DTM and XK...buggy simply because of the suspension arrangement... I take them out occasionally and admire the design. My Corally C4 sat in the cupboard for years and I never use to run that........ I guess I fall into the buying cars like because they look GOOD category

I did see a Traxxs (TMaxx) at Harmony.... I guess if they can get the TMax then the 4-tec pro should not be a problem. I did once see Traxxs spares in the shop at the end of the alley in Mong Kok (now a mini-Z track)....... but that was a LONG time ago! GOOD LUCK with your purchase.... just be very careful driving it!!!
