Dist should be ordering it soon, it's not a Nitrohouse exlusive. This will be availble to all stores for purchase.

They are the same shocks only the cap has changed, to be a lil shorter to fit the new 4mm shock posts. And a shorter front shock shaft.

Ok, so I had firts race this weekend with X3 and it was driving so good, I had not had a chance to run on a track with a nice bite racing groove so would be read deal on what the car was going to do, very good. I signed up two classes for the TFT. 40+ and Intermediate. Both classes were tough but Imanaged a TQ for the old guys league, my Intermediate class was alot harder as there more cars in the heats, 12 cars on a small track was the beating and banging constantly for me to get a clean track and get a smooth run, but when I got free for a couple of laps it was turing and taking the bumps very well. Unfortunatly for me the mains were a different issue as my engine yanked a rod before the start of my Intermedaite race and my servo decided not to turn to the left in the 40+ as a few minutes went into the race, my wheels were shaking when idleing and knew it was only a matter of time to bad it went out in the race. But I can't wait to get out there and race again. And I ran thought alot of buggies on the face of jumps esp. on the big triple and me and my other teamates cars walked away with no car damage and his race was way more brutal than mine.

Sounds like my weekend with my Hyper 9 but no TQ and no issues with the motor although I think its starting to lay down on me(might have to go shopping soon).
I hope to have my X3S next week in time for rd 2 of the midwest nitro series on the 18th.

Thank you! I've been really digging that wing for a while, I should have the car by january and laying down laps at jcp indoor and hopefully results that will inspire others to grab one up, I've always liked the jammin/hong nor cars since I started racing.

Good to see Horizon and Great Planes will be selling the car and the parts. Parts support through good distribution is always a plus.
