Thats only 17 days since you ordered it whats the problem you should be able to install that part before next winter OMG I can't believe that ehroof but the guys who do give good service haven't got the stock those guys do so they probably don't even care [&o]

We have the stock and soon clermont will too, you all just have to ask or search our sites before running off to tower Hobbies right off the bat. Our prices might be one or two dollars above tower but our shipping is 3 or four dollars below. Since were smaller were more abliged to give A-1 service and as fast as possible shipping.

i know but nobody has the hpi 13/18 tooth clutch with needle bearing and bushings or i would have ordered from somewhere else, even 4 of my lhs didnt have then, they could have gotten them in a week for me, i will never order from tower again and suggest everyone else to boycott them too!!! LOL

That is totally true Ed they are very hard to come by, I even checked with hobby town USA and they don't have them and there's three hobby towns here as big as a walmart and none of them had them. I don't know why there so un popular but they are. Maybe Dennis will be able to get some from (I hate to say this) Great Plains[:'(] when he gets his store open.

They lost two, I stopped buying from them along time ago, when I found if I looked hard enough I could get a better deal from a smaller company with better shipping and better customer service. Someone that cared.

the whole thing is that their prices are not that great, they just seem to always have what you need, but your lhs can get what you need too, it may take a week but you can get it from them.

man i wish i would have read this post earlier. i just ordered an electric crank starter from them yesterday. but they did send me a confirmation e-mail today saying to expect it monday or tuesday so here's to hoping for the best(my a.d.d. doesnt allow me to wait very well lol) but if you are just ordering everyday parts or standard aluminum mods i recommend [link]http://www.rufaster.com[/link].... $1 shipping on everything and i have never waited more than 4 days for my parts to arrive. as for the 13/18 unless somebody else knows something we are all stuck with tower

That's the same answer I got from one fo the Hobby Towns I went to. I thought maybe the guy was full of BS, because HRP still has the needle bearings, but I'm sure it's a possibility.
