I don't think I've ever seen so much interest in a discontinued product! Its mentioned on this page that the Glamis Fear (in production, far as I know) shares all the same running gear with the Uno, so we should be good with parts for some time. I'm going to run the heck out of mine, actually charging batts now so my son can run with a buddy in a little while.

Chuck makes a good point about buying an extra shell, maybe we could keep this thread alive by making a list of components NOT shared with the Glamis Fear. We must be kindred spirits here as I often like products which are unique, function well, and are discontinued because they're not "best sellers". I bought an HPI Mini Trophy... discontinued, drive a 99 Dodge Dakota... Dakota line discontinued, it goes on and on.

I have a question for LOSIFIEND when he returns to the forum regarding my newly purchased Glamis Fear and the Robinson Halix spur mod. (check your pm's )

I was out running with my son and stripped the spur gear, went to Horizon to order another and saw that the Glamis Fear is now discontinued. I'll continue to run my Uno until parts are depleted but what a bummer, was really hoping the Fear stayed in production so that critical parts would remain available a little longer.

Oh well, I've been eyeing the Axial Yeti XL and they seem to offer products popular enough to remain in production and generate a huge aftermarket selection. Buggies must be for us old guys who started in the 80's with Hornets, RC-10's, Losi, etc.

It certainly makes it difficult to recommend Vaterra to anyone when their cars have such short production runs and so few aftermarket options. TIme to stock up on whatever parts remain out there.

Kalahari, Kemora, Glamis Uno and Fear. All gone in the past 2 years.

When I bought my Glamis Fear around xmas time from my LHS, it was already showing as "This item is no longer available" on Horizon's site ... it then was showing available again at some point between then and now. It may very well be discontinued permanently this time but you can't know that for sure based on mentioned status... I've seen that status flip flop before on other items as well.

Citationfxr,
I bought the Yeti (non XL) around the same time... it's on my blog

Thanks for the warning. In that case, I'll add a few more spare parts to my next Horizon order.
