Default TB-02 Hard to find parts

I am looking for the parts tree that has the body mounts. Tower is out, tamiya usa is out, and so is RCmart. Anyone know of a place that may have them in stock? RC mart has front aluminum ones but Id rather have plastic if possible since I get front and rear in 1 package.

At this point I may have to, I cant find anything other than $10 front aluminum ones but no matching aluminum rears.

That's crazy that you have to buy a whole kit just for a part tree...

Can't you just have un-matched aluminum posts?! Or?

What did you break?! Post some pics!!

All I need are the front body posts, I would prefer to not have aluminum since they will just get scratched up or bent.

I ordered some traxxas 4-tec ones off tower and I will see how they fit. Should work fine, but for a car that is still being sold you would think that Tamiya would have better parts support for it.

you might really have to because i had to buy a whole new chassis i bought the nissan Z chassis to get all the parts for my tamiya. Its a great deal think about it

Tamiya body=50
wheels and tires=50
miscellanious parts=70

thats more than there selling the kit for and your getting a new chassis to along with the differential which always seems to break

Yeah maybe, Ill come across that bridge if the traxxas posts dont work. I like the kit other than that, I know its not as popular as the TT-01 but I believe its a newer chassis right? Its just kinda funny the old is better supported than the new one.

Well I had a little mishap with a brushless system, a 3S lipo, and a tree. One of the rear tires kinda came off the rim and the car kinda made a 45 degree right turn over a curb and smack into a 4" wide tree trunk. Talk about bad luck, geez. Tore off the whole right rear. A-arm, shock tower, shock, dog bone, the body, the hinge pin, are all toast.

Tamiya USA has 4 different TB-02 kits on clearance ranging from $85 - $119. Tower has nothing that cheap in stock and neither does RCmart. Just in case anyone needed a spare kit.

I got the NSX kit for $93 shipped via UPS. Im not sure if it comes with the ESC or not, I think it does because it does not say it doesnt. The other kits say ESC not included. But either way it doesnt matter.

Maybe with the crude oil going up and up, they decide to cut down production to save cost
