Default GS Racing? What happend?

I recently purchased a GS storm pro off of craigslist. This is my first car so i'm kinda new to the hobby. I was at the track the other day and I broke a suspension arm on it and figured it would be an easy repair. NOT... Wheres all the parts for this car at? Did GS go under because their north american website is not working!!! this is really frustrating me becuase i have put so much money and time into this hobby already and i have gotten nowhere with it! All I need is a dam front lower suspension arm and im set. anyone have any suggestions on where to find this? i have looked everywhere and its backordered to hell! thanks guys - the noob

lets take a step backwards and look at the situation....you bought a used truck off craigslist...and you are new to the hobby? seems like you should have done some research prior to jumping into a new hobby...do some searching around...

I do not know much about gs but here is a link to some lower a-arms for a cl-1 I think they are the same as the storm..

This is a classic example of why everyone recommends buying from your LHS because they stock parts

Years ago GS cut off all the US distributers and decided to go drect to the hobby shops( just like kyosho)...In time this hurt them because with GS the hobby shop had to have a minimum order of X amount of dollars before GS would sell to them.....I believe in a last ditch effort to save them here in the US they got another distributer but never got as big as they once was.......

As of now there US distributer dropped them...They have no US distributer right now....If you do find parts in the US buy as many of them as you can if you continue to run GS products...
