well if you look down the side of my post you will see my location and as of yet i don't know where to get spares.....my REVO is arriving imanetly......hope i can meet to race ya
i don't think you can buy spares in the uk yet as the revo has not been released yet. but as soon as it is you should be able to get spares from traxxas uk. hopefully this weekend;)

Ime in Bury St Edmunds (between ipswich and cambridge)
there will be a offroad track based in Norfolk at the Snetterton racecourse towards the end of the month - at present they have a decent tarmac track.
My local hobbyshop has revo spares but not 2 many at the mo ..more arriving soon.
I have got all my spare bits from ebay such as rcboyz or hobbyguyrc shop or something - decent prices and shipping costs cheap to uk
Revo due around the 15th Sept unless traxxas change details.

I've had my Revo since July 23rd, it's now fitted with a Sirio .23 :D
You can get Revo spares from Traxxas UK!! Yes they have Revo spares but not the truck :confused:
I buy most of my spares from Tower hobbies or from ebay the same ones that nrosten mentioned.
I am in South London (the better side of the River ;) ) :p
Buying spares from those 2 ebay sellers works out cheaper than Tower and a lot cheaper than UK prices, their postage charges are very good and you wont get caught having to pay customs.
