    Best online store for RC parts?

    Can anyone suggest the best online place to buy RC parts and accessories, especially if only buying a small part or two at a time?

    Of course, BuyTraxxas.com, but also for parts not offered by Traxxas?

    Amainhobbies.com IMO is the best next to ebay.

    I use www.rcsuperstore.com, or Ebay and use seller store VGracing. I have had great luck with both sellers.

    true tower is hard to get used to, however it is my personal favorite. it's odd. i find amain hard to navigate. harder then tower was/is.

    in my opinion, it goes tower - amain - rcplanet.

    rcplanet has the lowest prices, but their selection isn't very big.

    Towerhobbies focuses on all r/c products not just trucks. thus their invintory is massive. therefore the website is hard to navigate because it has so much to it. the only thing is the do not carry tekno products.

    in short, use several sites because no singal site is the best.

    I do agree with the several site thing. This is why i use ebay for most of my shopping as there is thousands of stores to choose from.. and then i use amain and then i will go to the LHS

    I like towerhobbies. A bit hard to navigate unless you know what your looking for but the prices are spot on and if your in the supersaver club you get free shipping. And if you spend enough you get a good discount.

    Try to resist buying a couple of things at a time unless you get free shipping. The shipping cost can really start to add up.

    Thanks guys! Got it narrowed down to r/c planet or A-Main Hobbies... For the same stuff, r/c planet is about 1.30 cheaper (5 parts, $28 so far), but haven't figured out shipping yet. Trying to decide if to buy tires/rims or not while I'm at it. (see other thread)

    I like that Tower provides information on the products (for the most part), they have a bigger selection, however, on pretty much all the parts that A Main sells, their prices are cheaper. The only issue with A Main is the products that Tower has, they don't and I would rather buy everything at one place to save on shipping costs.
    R/C Planet looks pretty decent price-wise too. I like that they have the exploded views of the trucks and you can click on the part number and it will bring you to the product. (They don't have the 5308 nor the new 5309 on there though )
