It all depends on what I need. Kits I will typically buy from my LHS, but for the remaining items like LiPo's, Spare Parts, and Hop Ups, I will get from StormerHobbies, NexusRacing, or LosiPartsHouse.

If you need NiMh batts, several guys I race with buy NiMh batts directly from ProMatch. Matched packs at a good price.

Since my LHS sucks I just buy online. They charge $30 for 1 comm cut, and they think a diff that grimds is the smothest diff they ever felt and it is metal rubbing on metal.

Ultimatehobbies for kits, especially around holidays, can be really cheap.

for batteries and chargers, had good luck with stuff from www.rclipos.com and TrueRC. Bishop Power Products has good prices on stuff too.

I have heard quite a lot of praise for hobbycity but since it is located in China and everything they sell is basically a clone of something that is really expensive in the us. (no offense to chinese ppl. btw i am one) is their stuff safe???
