Just remember it wasn't us. If you look at our page for hop ups you will see their cheap even at retail your dealers should have them even cheaper. we will look into an upgrade but it will take a little while while we get settled and get replacement inventory. A whole lot of cars are on order and a hundred should be in monday. our goal is to bring the cost of racing and playing rc back to reality

i think you will find that all cars are the same, there is always long lists of options for every car, and most are not needed,

I understand parts aren't going to be the cheapest thing on the planet, but when you get a car and the fuel tank is not the right size and then they charge you 30.00 bucks for a new one, that is crap. Same thing with the sliding servo saver, that fricken thing is expensive and you can't buy just the parts you need, alot of the time you have to buy more than you need. Oh well.
Rdlogics, are you coming out with a pipe designed for the Rossi Pixie .12 ROAR legal motor?

And you forgot the fact it is a dud on the track.

Whats up Alan! So how'd you do at the Regionals? I can't find any info on the final standings. I'll try and be there Sat morning. You wouldn't happen to have a mugen clutch shoe would ya? Once again, Ultimate comes thru again with not having the parts that wear the most.

Alan, have you noticed any problems with the new steering arms?

I put the new arms on my car about a week ago and have had nothing but problems; no matter what I do the car pushes!!!

I finally put my car on a stand and cycle the steering from hard left to hard right. When I do the left suspension raises up at full lock!?!?!? WTF? So I take the arms off and compare them and lo and behold the geometry on the left is totally different than on the right!?!?!

Do yours look like this? Surely, they must, unless these are molded in a multiple cavity mold and I got a steering arm from a bad cavity.

Check this pic out:

Notice how the ball ends on the left steering arm (the one on the right in the pic) can't travel as far as on the right arm. This is what is causing the left suspension to lift!!! Also notice how much wider area "B" is than area "A", and how line "C" is tilted much more than line "D".

This SUCKS!!!!!! I can't believe anyone with the new steering arms is getting good performance.

Thats a pretty significant difference between the two. Was there ever a problem with the pillow balls pulling out of the knuckle before?

rc_alan- The motor was blazing yesterday. Yours is just as fast. The motor was massaged by Data. He gave that to me about 2 months ago. It keeps getting better every week. He keeps telling me to change the rod, change the rod.
