So what happens to you when you break your car and theres a big meet on tomorrow? Where are you going to get your parts from if you don't have any spares?

Didn't you read the second line of the quote? Besides at the premium level of RC cars, you would have to crash your car awful hard to get to get to the point where you would require a major infusion of parts. And even if you get to that point, it would be cheaper to just replace it with another one than to just fix it in parts alone. Do you buy your cars a la carte? (piece by piece) I think not.

Like all seasoned racers, its always good to keep a good personal stock of spares in your box with you whenever you go race. What will you do if you race at another place across town that doesn't carry parts for your car? Also what will you do if the parts you need are out of stock at your store for 2 weeks or more?

Lastly nobody mentioned the Yokomo BD. Although its almost 2years old its still a good car. I don't have one but those that do like it because the parts are very inexpensive.

Team Losi usually has pretty good parts support, and the Type-R is DIALED!

That is the most absurd thing I have heard here in a while, part support should be one of your main concerns. I would look at what the Fast people at you Local track are running, Parts support for those Chassis, if money for spares is an issue or could be look at the cost of spares (i.e. Xray's spares are the most expensie out there). While your at the track you should also find out what motors the fast guys are running in the class or classes you plan to run.

I run the xray and did you know that you can buy a complete fully assembled diff for about 10.00 more than rebuilding one? I mean come on whats up with that. I wonder how the others compare.
I say buy from the track you race at, and if they cant help try all of the local hobby shops.
And if they cant help, then go to the internet.
You will feel better about trying to support your local team first.
11 plus years I've had to use the NET twice.
We could all use a place to race for years to come, and by purchasing from the local tracks and shops are the only sure way to keep them open.

I too will be running a T2 007 Euro as of this week, I hadn't checked the price of a diff rebuild, $10 difference, thats why I said Xray has the most expensive spares.

C-Hubs and steering knuckles are all I really ever break but every time you want to do a diff rebuild with carbide its with in about 10 and 15.00 to rebuild, the last time I just bought the whole dang diff.
1 C-Hub 5 to 6.00. I mean a dang anti roll bar kit is like 25.00.
Dig deep for the Xray parts. Been running them since the EVO-2.
Luckily they are tougher than the boards. Well most of the time.
And every thing comes one to a pack.
Carbide thrust bearing is like 20.00 what the heck.
