Default Hot Bodies parts availability?

I have seen some talk that some folks have had issues with being able to get Hot Bodies parts from time to time and that they have to order them from overseas some. Is this a common problem or is it just isolated? If it is a problem in the U.S., where is the best place to order them from in Europe and how bad is the shipping? Thanks in advance.

Parts are available all over the place...Almost any LHS can order from HPI/HB as well.

RCMARKET is the only place we have been able to get a steady supply of parts.

Hot Bodies USA http://www.hotbodiesonline.com

They have a good amount of spares you'll need. Some of the hop ups aren't in stock at the moment, but it's always worth a look.

Stormer Hobbies http://www.stormerhobbies.com

These guys are a very large online retailer that have just about anything and everything in the US. They also have a pretty decent stock of HPI/HB parts.

If those both don't suit your needs, go with STLNLST's suggestion and try RC MARKET at http://www.rcmarket.com.hk He always has most of the goodies in stock, and has very good service. Shipping is a little more than the other two because they are based in Hong Kong. Always a good source for parts though.
