AP, sorry to say Las Vegas has to be the worst US city for supporting R/C cars. There is a Hobby Town with Traxxas parts, two Hobby People's with no parts and a pretty good 1/8th scale shop out in Boulder City, 35 minutes from the strip. The only place that MIGHT have something you need is a family run store called Dansey's. Their phone number is 702-453-RACE. (They used to race a long time but haven't for years)
I'm sure you will enjoy your time here but there is not much going on here as far as electric racing. If you need any help when you get here, give me a call. My phone number is 702-510-5577. My email is email@example.com
. I will be glad to help you out.
Cheers, my friend from across the ocean!
