I hope so too, and a side note while I'm looking for a replacement A-Arm. I have a race roller sitting here that I forgot all about.

I went out there earlier in the year. They were still there. But they don't carry hardly any nitro on road stuff. mainly offroad.

It's the sad truth, that Traxxas and HPI is what sells in the stores. I am the exception, in that I do not normally have those on hand. It would be much better for my bottom line if I stocked them...
I can't speak for your LHS, but I imagine they would not mind ordering parts for your MTX though. They don't have to go through a smaller specialty supplier to get what you need. They can simply add what you want to one of their orders. They probably order from Horizon a couple times a week. MUGT0136 is the part # for the front lower arm. I only mention this because they could help with turn outs..
I think they would be more likely to send some prospective racers your way if you spend a couple bucks with them now and then.

Hey Elliott , where do you usually go locally to test or mess around with your touring car? Or do you just wait till you are on a track?

Well I pretty much only test at the track. I really can't get a feel how my car is handling unless I'm on the surface I intend to race on. I used to run on a parking lot but It really does give me any info on what to change. Also I think I left one of my allen drivers on your table It's a red 2.0 with a slightly broken tip. Also If you still run the MTX-3 I have 5 pairs of front steering knuckles you can probally use. Shoot me a PM and I'll give you more info. Hope to see some of you guys in Toledo this weekend for the last MWS race.
