Obviously as much as i spent/owe my LHS he knows where i spend my hard earned $, but online Superior has a great "close-out" section that i don't think anyone can beat, and great tire prices.
Tower is for people who waste money!!
Carolina's has great prices and service,
Rc Mushroom has V-specs for 225, so i will try them out soon.
I also get CEN parts from CEN Direct

Most of the time - Amain - Easy to navigate, good stock. Fast shipping

Other favorites

Unitedhobbies - cheap source of LiPo and accessories

RC-Mushroom - good prices on some stuff, fast and unlike many HK based stores not overpriced EMS shipping

Carollina's - Little bit worse than amain thanks to not very frienly web interface that is slow to navigate and still quite low stock, but it's getting better. Great customer service.

Tower - In my E-maxx times na favorite. Lack of EMS shipping is a big MINUS so use it mostly for Duratrax Vendetta parts and once in a while thanks to their quite big discounts for other stuff.

Buy lot of parts on Ebay from folks that part-out trucks.

Almost forgot LiquidRC that is great for small parts thanks to their shipping. Sure we all know that shipping is hidden in the price of goods, but still most of the times the cheapest place to get just few small parts.

I will buy online from any reputable company that has good prices, and the parts I need in stock. I have bounced from one site to another to find stock, and ordered from the place that had it.

Usually i use towerhobbies to FIND what i want because their site is just super organized and easy to navigate, then get the part number and order from Stormer Hobbies.. But that is usually if i the LHS (gyro hobbies) doesn't have what i want.. but that is rare.
