Default Which Electronics???

I just got a lightly used kyosho truggy roller, and am looking for a decent entry level Electronics set up for it? What is out there that has Servo's ,Receiver, transmitter etc all that i need. I am looking for something that will get me started running and having fun but not hit the wallet too hard. Also where is a good Kyosho internet parts house that i can order replacement parts from?

Thanks

Personally, I think this is sometimes an area that gets horribly overlooked. Spending 40 bucks on a servo will get you just that -- $40 performance. It seems silly to permanently modify other parts like ackerman arms to get "more steering" or compensating for the throttle servo by changing springs, yadda yadda. With companies like JR offering ridiculous 3-year warranties on servos and the like, get a step ahead. Spend the cash. I, myself, find electronics to be probably the most valuable asset to an RC car, on- or of-road. I only get the best of the best, because in the long run, it's worth it. At least, to me it is.

For reference, yo can see my sig.
