Default Update on my Tornado

Well I have some to realize that it is going to be a while before I get to drive my car again. I have searched and searched, and searched, and no one has my wheels in stock. [&o] So I am going to wait on my order with Redcat and hope they get some soon. I am rather frustrated right now with the whole situation[:@] but I guess all I can do it wait. Thanks for any help anyone has given me. Once I get my buggy going again I will post some pics and possibly a video.

nope. I have checked so many sites, and they all say the same thing, that they are out of stock. I was going to order some other parts, just so I have replacements, but I don't think that is a good idea right now. The more I think about it, the more bummed I get. I bought a $200 car and now I can't even use it. And the one part I need, is the one part that is on back order. Really sucks.

well all I need is a rear rim, but I want to buy both rear rims and tires so that I have spares. I am seeing if I can get either the green or yellow rims and I will keep my order on the rims and tires and use those for spares whenever I get them.

I just ordered the green rears with tires. It said they were in stock. For some reason when I searched that when I first ordered I couldn't find the green or yellow ones, it only came up with the chrome ones. I personally don't care what they look like or what color they are. As long as I can drive it and race with my dad that is all I care about. I am definitely in a better mood about it now. Thanks for pointing that out, I would have never thought about the green or yellow again.

Well, it has been a week now since I last drove my car. I am sitting letting my rim dry. I loaded it with super glue so maybe I can atleast putt around with it for a little bit. I am dire need of a "pick me up".lol. I haven't gotten a shipping order yet for my green wheels, but I am hoping I will hear something soon. Just figured I would let everyone know how I am doing right now.
