    Am I Alone? Any New Zealanders out there?

    Hello everyone, i was thinking today and was wondering if anyone here from New Zealand.

    Hiya Josh.

    I'm not a Kiwi (the wife is though) but live in Auckland on the North Shore. Originally from Johannesburg, South Africa.

    I've seen a couple of posts from Kiwis on the forums. Don't seem to be many Traxxas owners up here though. parts are a little too pricey as opposed to the states I imagine.

    Same here, I order from Tower Hobbies although I did get an alu motor mount off trade me for a buck in December, lol. I've only got the Slash 4x4 ultimate. I had to pour myself a double Cpt Morgan overproof when i checked out the price of a standard Slash 2x4 locally. Just thinking about it makes me want to pour another one...i'd better do that now,

    I'm nuts about my truck but don't get much chance to use it. the closest tracks to me are in South and West Auckland. Busy following up on a track just North of here in Silverdale but nothing confirmed yet. I just need to get my a in to g and find a half decent bashing spot. Also muck around with helis and planes except the flipping weather hasn't been kind lately.

    Hi Josh,
    Just bought a Slash, thanks for the info about toadzrc.
    Unfortunatly I already snapped an a arm and bent a shock so I have parts coming already from a couple of places and it looks like I could have gotten all the parts from toadz for roughly the same price, but I would have saved on shpping.

    I live in Christchurch so I only use the truck for bashing because there don't seem to be any tracks around (I did find one, the track doesn't look like much, but it might be worth turning up just to watch)

    Hey guys, I'm on the north shore, Auckland and struggle to find many people who just want to bash.
    I mainly just go to my local park. Sometimes I go next to mitre 10 mega in Albany. It's a pretty good space.
    I've got an erevo 1/10 that I've spent thousands on over the last year or so.
    I also buy most of my parts from ebay. I only use traxxas nz when I need a part super urgently.
    Anyone else out there wanting to meet up just hit me back.cheers
