Thanks,

Actually absolutly nothing! I just can't get parts fast enough around here. 1st I had a race last weekend were I lost my outdrive on the oneway and had to race the rest of the day 3wd. Luckly I found that part AFTER the day was done. I had a stock of arms/hubs/belts but not that part. 2nd I had a race this past weekend and I needed the parts for the optional front diff (because they setup a very tight road corse) and Harmony never got back to me and the closest shop that had it near me was several states away. I ordered the parts and paid for extra shipping and they got here today! I needed 2 days ago...furthermore they left out the washers I needed for the diff and I can't begin/complete the front diff assembly. Before I began assembly I started to verify all the parts and with myu luck they weren't there! So I got frustrated and posted my new car for sale. Who knows maybe the shop will get me the washers in time for this weekend and if the front diff goes well I may just keep it. Looks like nobody's biting to purchase mine.

In the past when I finally did get my order through to Harmony the shipping was FAST! Actually faster then some shops ordering within the USA.

We'll see...

Am I being unreasonable? It's just hard to not have the small parts available when you need it most. With other cars I have better local parts support.

hmmm...I will definitely miss it if it does go. This car handled great!!!

yeah in theory that works out great BUT sometimes I need it a few days before the weekend. I don't have every night open to work on the car if needed. I have YUK responsibilities.

If I rushed the parts all the time I'd have to pay ALOT for spares or replacements just in shipping alone.

I don't know what I would do if I tweaked my chassis or shattered the bulkheads last weekend. It's just comforting sometimes to have parts local.

We'll see how it goes after I get the missing washers. If they don't arrive in time for the weekend I will most definitely get frustrated.

Again absolutely NOTHING wrong with the car just local support is obsolete.
