The new amain site sucks imo, I loved the old style.
I was just wondering if anyone knew of a replacement part that is not a Tamiya part. It seems like these parts are kind of hard to come by. I would love to be able to go into a hobby store and buy one that is used on a HPI, Traxxas, Mugen buggy/ truggy instead that is always available.

Just a quick update. The kingpin bushings in the Hot Bodies D8T are the same size as the Tamiya truggy if anyone is looking for a replacement.

I will have this truggy back up and running by tomorrow.

I'm looking for some front control arms for this truggy. Either the factory longer ones or the shorter upgraded ones. If anyone see's any for sale please let me know. I haven't found any online lately for sale that are in stock.

Thanks,
Nick

If anyone is looking for these Tamiya is still making the longer stock arms that came on the scratch and dent truggy. The said that the shorter upgraded arms have been discontinued. I e-mailed them back and asked if they would be making those again and I'm still waiting for a reply.

Got this truggy back up and running this weekend. Wow I didn't remember how quick it was. It was fun to be back at it after a few years not playing with it. Next year we will have to take it with us on a few vacations. I was teaching my seven year old son to drive it too, it did ok but he has a heavy finger.

It is a great conversion kit. I am very pleased with mine. It's held up great over the years even thought it doesn't get used much these days.
