Was out running this afternoon. I broke a rear shock shaft despite trying to take it easy knowing the parts situation. Now I have a super nice, highly modified, paper weight for my desk. It's going to be so nice to have those big fat tires to hold down my papers when I open the window. I'm super stoked about my new paper weight. It's awesome. For want of a $4 part my kraton is now completely useless, just like Arrma customer service, which just gives me the run around when I contact them. Ebay is no help. I would have bought a pair of rear shocks in a heart beat......none available. Everywhere else is a joke. No one has the parts. I was just about to buy both an Outcast and a Talion because the truth is, I love my kraton and typhon. They are just wonderful rc vehicles. Now.......NO WAY! I wont be buying anymore arrma products until they can get the parts problem under control. It really REALLY stinks to have such a great truck and no parts. I guess I can wait for the parts to come back in stock but that's risky. ( their is no ETA, its just an open ended abyss). My other option is to spend $100 and get some tekno shocks. I should not have to do this. However, what choice do I have? That Tekno MT410 is calling my name and is looking cheaper and cheaper as I look at my new $1000 kraton paper weight.
