As "mainstream" as the brand may be, I haven't noticed many parts at my LHS.. God knows they stock TRX parts wall to wall... YES.... But I mean it's nice when you need to replace something ASAP until you can order what you WANT... My E-maxx is only 50% TRX parts... But it's still nice to have the local support... I may be talkin out my ass here, but I would venture to guess that the aftermarket support is also a bit stronger (HPI, Traxxas) than it is for Thunder Tiger...

The thing is you dont need all that aftermarket stuff.

Think of an MT4 G3 as an E-Maxx that comes factory with RPM arms, Aluminum Bulkheads, Aluminum Shocks, CVD's, helical cut differentials, etc.... Basically its rock solid out of the box, and unless you are giving it a real beating, you will only need a handfull of spares to run you a long time.

I understand that some people still buy stuff from the LHS, which is good. But most LHS's can order thunder tiger stuff, and most people now buy online 90% of the time anyways. I bet I buy 98% of my rc purchases online now. Fuel is about the only thing i buy from the hobby shop, because they are an hour away and their prices are higher.

I guess my logic is that I wouldnt buy an Inferior truck just because the hobby shop had the weak parts that easily break in stock. Buy the truck that wont break as easily and you will still spend less money and have less downtime in the long run
