Title says it where would you go to buy parts?
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.

Well my closest LHS is 2 hours away so then to narrow it for you I mean online (right now looking at the tqi with all the goodies) I'm trying to find a reliable place at fair prices
will the bumper for the stampede 4x4 vxl fit on the stampede vxl 2wd?
RC PLANET=very good
traxxas is da best
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
I buy kits and RTRs from Tower and everything else from A-Main and eBay.
cool thanks man
i use rcplanet
Well, since I don't have a lhs for 50 miles around me, I stick to ebay......
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.

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 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.
