Umm,

http://www.ampdraw.com/
http://www.amain.com/

Both of these places have Xray parts. Ampdraw is even in San Diego. Have you never heard of ampdraw or a main?

How bought going to your local store and see what parts they carry. Get that kit... otherwise do what the rest of do... order online. Get spare parts for your pit box.

You will need a good supply of spares with the Durango. Its a fast chassis though but some of the parts are very delicate, although some new parts are supposed to be coming soon to sort that out.

No one uses kit oil anyways...

Go with an ARC R10 ATS kit and sell the Durango.

Money not a problem, then get Awesomatix.

You can take Sakura and Ofna off your list if you are serious.

But then add Serpent, VBC, ARC, Tamiya, Schumacher and awesomatix

Sounds like you need to do some more research and get to you local track before waving your wallet around. And also decide what class and tracks (are they all going to be Tarmac?) you plan to run on. Makes a big difference to what chassis you should choose.

Unless the Durango has awesome local support - shop and drivers - I'd be staying away personally.

You want the most expensive? Go for the awesomatix. Just don't expect results on asphalt to come easy.

Want the best all round car with best in class design and with good world wide support and parts availability - go the latest Yokomo (or Xray perhaps)

I'm dieing to know where you are at where Xray parts are hard to find but Durango is plentiful? The only time I've seen something like that is running in a small manufacturer's back yard.
