Default Wanting to buy something from Towerhobbies but...

But the date that they are getting stock it keeps getting postponed
Each time a month gets added
Now I can't wait til "Late June" as it states, with the chance of it getting postponed as it has the last 3 months

I need this:
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...7&I=LXMMM7&P=K
Or something similar. Does anyone know where else I can buy this from?

Help would be appreciated

I don't know where you could get that part but changing the expexted date is pretty standard for tower. I was after a part for a plane. The date tower said it would come in changed one month at a time for 6 months. I emailed them asking what was the real date. They replied with something along the lines of its not their fault as the supplier changes the predicted date.
Take that for what you will. Moral of the story, if they change the date once then look elsewhere.

To the right there is a place where you can have them e-mail you when the part does become available.
I think that I know what your putting it on. I use this one on a few of my little boats: http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXJM08&P=K as it keeps the pipe close to the engine and has a slight upturn.

hmmm...
Now I am worried about ordering an item with "Pending Order" status. Is that ok or will I be waiting forever?

Ron that is very close to what I want... but I am not sure how the upturn will be?
If it was flat that'd be awesome

This one seems good but it's a bit close to the engine
Would this fit? It doesn't say for what size motor

What you have to look at is if you have to go around anything like a radio box.

No it doesn't, the closest thing is the fuel tank so I want it to go about 4-5cm away from the motor

This seems good:

And I can cut it down if it's too long, but will it fit the aqua motor??

There is a guy on Ebay who takes apart the Miss Vegas boats and parts them out. He has a header right now.

Does he get the motors as well?

I emailed him, as it doesn't say he does international shipping...
So hopefully he does, and gets the motors too

Thanks heaps for finding him for me
