Default buyer beware: Armma Senton 6s BLX parts

I love my Arrma Senton 6s! Just a blast to drive. However I was late to the news of Hobbico chapter 11 bankruptcy. So if your wanting to buy a Arrma product stock up on available parts now.You break something certain parts are on back order until mid may. I broke my body mounts which if your bashing is easy to do. Parts are not available until mid may. Thats 2 months out!!! LAME.

I see lots of folks buying ARRMA lately which is pretty much on fire sale... at this point I would be shocked if the brand remains in business, I think they only have a couple more weeks to find a buyer before closing doors for good and I haven't heard any announcement of a new buyer yet

That sucks! I'd sure hate to see one of the better brands go under. Sounds like Hobbico over extended themselves, like GM did with Saturn.

... plus Hummer, Pontiac and Oldsmobile are also fallout from GM's bankruptcy... the company has completely changed their philosophy and has already left Ford in the dust, they are now targeting brands like Tesla, Toyota, Volkswagon and BMW to be compared with
