www.carolinasrc.com, great shipping, huge place, awesome prices..

www.amainhobbies, good place as well just to long of ship time(5 days) to make it to me.

I have looked into tower but can not imaging shopping there with prices compared to like Carolinas or amain...

Mainly Tower, but A-Main, Stormer, NitroHouse and RC-Monster. I've shopped at many others, but these are the ones I turn to first.

I do the same 80% of the time.If my LHS can get to within a few dollars of the cheapest place i can find online i go with them.There has bin a few occasion tho where i went online.I just talked with them and said how it was (I rather give my biz to you but wont waist my money as long as they come really close id go with them)

Definatly LHS but they are closed Sunday an Monday... Depends on if they have it..I wish our LHS had an on line cart, it is easy to make a list with Part numbers, so you dont forget that Exaust gasket, or gear set ETC for your next tear down..or to replace what you just used...

Hot Bodies Online (of course)
A Main
Tilted RC

Tilted RC has great prices. The only thing is, being on the West coast, it takes a little longer to get here, than say, Amain. Price wise though Tilted Rocks!

My LSH hooks me up with good prices, but in my area, there are only a few "racers" so they dont stock a ton of parts for the Top cars. They have a TON of parts for Traxxas, since they sell a lot of trucks to the locals.

Thats great when you can support the LHS. But they don't have everything you want on hand. When they order something it takes them a week or longer to get. I buy most of the tires, cleaners, fuel and some parts there. But somethings are impossible to get what you want when you want it. Online you can get it next day air if you want. In most cases online is cheaper plus not paying that rotten TAX and still come out ahead.

I'm all for Support at the local level. Just online shopping in one place you darn near can get everything you want in one spot.

I like to shop "fleE-BAY". I love fixing other people's crap! It's a hobby of mine

Though my LHS is pretty lame and seldom understands what I'm looking for (what's a sleeve shim??), I still try to show them my money.
