I'm considering one of these cars, but I'm a little concerned with the parts support internationally. Amain doesn't seem to carry anything, and I'm coming up a little dry for reliably stocked international suppliers, with realistic shipping charges.

Surely I'm missing the obvious? I'm based in NZ, for reference.

How about Walter Hobby in Aus as well as RC-MARKET in HK. Both carry parts reliably. You can also get great service from these guys in Germany. The shipping is a little steep if you are just ordering a couple of bits but for larger orders is good value for money. http://www.t2shop.de/epages/61746328...ops%2F61746328

Oh, that's not so bad at all, great options.

Thanks for the advice, super appreciated.

Zoom resources in Christchurch are the NZ importers and generally have exceptional parts backup. Plenty of guys running the serpent locally.

Yeah, the guy that I'm buying the car from mentioned the same. That makes me a lot happier about running the car here.

Cheers.
