Like masa227 nitrohouse is the only source I have ever used. I purchased my car and my sons cars there. The service is great. Shipping is fast. I think their warehouse is located down the street from the Ofna office in California.
They are the only source that I am aware of.

Pretty much what he said. If it's Ofna parts you need in the states, that's probably the best and fastest place to get them. I've ordered so many things from them they know me as soon as they hear the zip code.

If your not in the USA maybe try (and save $) Nikis Hobbies in HK- thats who I used, or rc-mushroom (custom order). You will need HN part numbers though not the OFNA ones.

Last time I checked out nitrohouse they where a lot more $$$ and also would not ship outside USA but this was a LONG time ago so things may of changed. (just checked website and yes it seems they do ship international now)

masa227, do Nitrohouse give big discounts on the prices listed on the website? The listed prices on website are very $$$

Default Steering rack/dirve shaft interference

Has anyone found a solution to the problem of the steering rack rubbing against the steel ring that covers the front bevel gear cap joint?

I have experienced this problem on a few cars and tried lowering the steering rack which did not work. The rack would rum the chassis.

Usually what rubs is the nut for the servo saver. I replaced the nut and haven't had a problem. The only other thing I can think of is to sand that part down

CurveRacer - I actually used small washers under the front diff housing. It raised the entire unit enough to clear the shaft from the steering unit.

Use the servo saver for the Nitro TC-3
