I thought that part numbers were the same. Just wanted confirmation.

I have had very good luck with ashfordhobby.com, and great service, too.

Also, StormerHobbies.com, NexusRacing.net, GSHobby.com, and for offroad, AMainHobbies.com, and BMainHobbies.com, have all gotten orders from me.

I really like www.precisionrc.com

They are in Hong Kong, and have very good prices fast cheap shipping on goods.

I always have a core I order from.
For Kits & Parts I always try to order from Steve at Speedtech RC.
For everything else I use:
Stormer Hobbies (Great Everything)
A-Main Hobbies (Great Off-Road Selection)
Tower Hobbies (for big $$$ part/supply orders)
Ultimate Hobbies
Nexus
Last Case Scenario:
Horizon Hobbies (too expensive)

Overseas like Japan or HK are great for parts.
Do not order anything big as shipping is too expensive.
Rule of thumb is if it is bigger than a shoe box or really heavy, do not order overseas.

Robert with www.ashfordhobby.com has always been very helpful over the phone and his on-line site includes inventory availability. So, you know what is in stock or not!

Here in the states, theres nothing better than www.speedtechrc.com. Nothing! Steve is the best.

And I'm not just saying that because I want my pre-ordered Mi3 to be one of the first out the door!

Your local hobby shop!

If they can't help you or don't carry everything then these places online in the US will serve you well.

We're pretty new compared to many of these, but Ampdraw is up and running, and I like to think our service is pretty good.

I should add that in the past 5 years I have shopped with many of the sites listed here and have had nothing but good experiences from all of them. I bought my first "real" competitive touring car from Speedtech, not long after he started in fact (before then, I had just been trading up used cars... haha).

Haha yeah you're right. I knew that page looked oddly familiar to me even though I had never been there before. I couldn't put my finger on it, but you hit the nail on the head.
