In NY, Try Bruckner Hobbies. its about 15 minutes outside of NYC in one of the few safe areas of the Bronx. They are a complete Hobby shop, with an inventory that rivals some of the larger on-line dealers

Hi again, It seems like Bruckner do not carry Losi products. (According to the homepage) I'm planning to bring home a 8ight 2.0 and a Novarossi Plus 4. Any further advices? (LA/NYC)
