@J@mes I don't think you can use the servo lowering guard with the gf01cb. It interferes with the plastic side guards. Seems they dropped that hop up when they revised the gf01cb list:

GF01:

GF01CB:

I only know this cause I'm also waiting for some blue goodness for a GF01CB Wild Willy 2 4wd build.

Hmm good to know, thanks for the info, seems my buy 1st check later policy is somewhat flawed. Your pragmatic aproach of checking stuff beforehand is admirable. 
 

Now I have a couple of options, fudge the build by deviating from the manual or I might have to paint the guard camel yello and slap it on the Heavy Dump. 
 

Either way thanks for the info & definitive lists of hop ups :D (must now try & resist buying all the other hop ups...)

I got a Willy figure tree and roll cage (WR02) in the mail today.  I ordered 3 driver figure trees from HK and they never arrived.   I ordered 2 more from Japan... hasn't arrived either.   So was kind of forced to buy local.

so i got a hop-up for Sandslash from AmainHobiies today. some assembly is required for the hex mount for the slash but thats trivial. im in a bind now, the stock tires are still very much alive as i havent taken it out for a run that many times but the new tires looks so nice... something tells me i will use the stock tires until i get around to reinforcing the new slash body i recently finished painting...

A few days ago the curiosity Black Special and the missing wheels for the TXT2 arrived. As the other black specials are at the cabin there’s no way to check for differences between the first and second run until covid restrictions are lifted. Nice to have all the wheels for the TXT2 though, god willing the decals on the clod shell will be applied later today.

Bet you can’t wait! I’ve got the standard Avante on back order. Didn’t think the Black Special was available anymore?

I bought it from a Hong Kong based seller, as he had more than 1 in stock I offered him $450 and he accepted so it would’ve  been rude to refuse. The fantasy sums some people are asking on eBay are just plain silly, and luckily there’s still deals to be had. 

Hope your Avante hurries up!

I got an empty bag of nothing from Amazon today.  What the heck, I open the bag and there is a gaping hole on the bottom.  LOL.. They're sending me another pack.

At least they sent some air and recycling material... that sucks to see invisible and intangible items when expecting an actual item.
