clermont doesnt have what i need on his site. i need the center diff hub for hurricane xp for the front gear box. ehroof, i bought some new tires as you did but getting off the old ones proved tough. i broke the front hub, my tires where stuck i had to back them off like a nut. i also need the front dogbone for volcano sv, ive ordered it last week no word and no part yet. thats been 7 days ago.

did you buy the rim and tire together? were the nuts stripped? i love my rims and tires and the price was great right?!?!? who did you order the dogbones from?? i think that the kyosho hubs will fit since the nuts do, i had mine come flying off one day, you have to make sure they are tight, i would ask in the 1/8 buggy thread, email clermontmotorsports and see if he can get them for you.

i did buy the rim and tire in fact same ones you had link to. the nuts where fine till i had to pull and pry the old tires off. i live in baton rouge and we do have a local shop, who is listed on kyoshos web site as a dealer. but he said they were very difficult to work with and stopped. my luck. new orleans had many shops but now they only have two i think and they have bare minimum, that i understand though.

find out from the guys in the 1/8 thread then you can just go to ebay and get them (kyosho) or email dennis, i am sure if he doesnt have them he can get them for you.

thats one good thing about living in nyc, the 3 shops i deal with are real cool, almost like a hang out, sometimes we have lunch and BS, they treat their customers good since they know there are other shops to deal with, they like to keep your business and i like to spread my local business around.

i bought all my parts so far from ebay and for the most part shipping hasnt been an issue, but these dogbones are taking too long. i also bought a hot bodies .46 engine thats taking too long but i dont have to have it to operate, its more for just trashing, i got it cheap.

You can get all your parts from Allabotufunhobbies.com he's got every part for every car and he's located in Texas, shouldn't take more than two days for parts to get to you and he has lower prices on parts than any one I've seen. I don't know if he does it on line but he does it at the shop he offers price matching on all his parts, all ya do is, well what i do is I find a website and print off the part and price if they have it cheaper than him and take it to him and he matches there price. If it's not on his site you can email him and ask him if he has the part I bet he does.

Dont catch an attitude with me punk, thats right your not my brother, your only here to push not to help, we all see it. dont go looking for trouble because you will find it. Nobody said anthing bad about your buddy allaboutfunhobbies, we are just saying that we have had good experiences with clermont, thats all, nothing more and nothing else. Deal with the fact that we all like clermontmotorsports, he has been here a long time and your not going to change our minds.

Please lets not start anything again. People can give there results from a dealer they are happy with, but I think that is where it should end. We dont need to compare dealers again. Dont want to delete another post. Please guys,
