    I buy from the net, RC planet, GH direct and e-bay. Do not forget to support also your lhs (local hobby dealer), ind fact it is better to trough them at the same price and no delivery charges, how ever sometimes there are things they cannot get in so the internet is the best option.

    I have Amazon prime, so I get what I can through them, but Amazon doesn't really have a whole lot of R/C parts that qualify for prime. Otherwise I've been going through amainhobbies.com

    My Fave ebay seller is lumidave.He sells Traxxas.
    Towers initial prices are a little high, but if your gonna spend chunks of money out at a time for rc, joining the super saver club can get the better deals on what they sell.
    If you need hardware(again someone who is active in this hobby with more than 1 truck can use bulk screws and nuts), Mcmaster is king. Recently bought 772 pieces of hardware, for 50 bucks. You might think 50$ is a lot for screws, but I see my overall $ losses in this hobby... And laugh. It will take me close to forever to spend that 50$ on screws, and nuts.

    My fave page:
    http://www.mcmaster.com/#socket-head-cap-screws/=mqqbpp
    Sit down, buckle up, hold on, pay me...

    I'm going to start a six wheeled crawler project very soon and I am making the chassis myself. I am going to order screws from a place called Harley Designs. Better prices than Mcmaster and the guy is a legend on rccrawler.com. He puts together some of the best builds on the site and is a tester for several companies. 800 pieces for $30! He just sells in bulk though, and all his screws are cap heads. Just a thought.....

    I love that deal. Thanks for the link. Mcmaster has way more stuff, but he has the best deal I have seen for a bulk screw kit.

    I like that you can get colored hardware from mcmaster for some bling screws though.

    I buy from a few vendors on eBay, lumidave, dollarhobbyz, rcpartshaus.
    I try to see which vendor has the majority of parts I am looking for to get a good combined shipping rate.
    ERBE, ERBE, Summit, Slash 4X4, Bandit,
