I have ordered from stella models and dinball and had good service. If you have a feebay account I would bypass ebay and order from rc-champ, they have everything you could ever dream of

For spares, try d-drivesportsenglish.com or RCMart. You can also order 3Racing right from their website.

Yeah they carry a good range of those products. Not sure how much of the Square stuff they stock. Service has always been very good from Champ rc.

Couple things...
1. Its not too bad a way of doing business considering how much business the place does. Try it before you knock it. If you've ever sent a email before, you can order quicly and efficiently from rc champ.
2. You have to remember, its not a US site. And if not glitzing up there site or adding english to it keeps the prices down...I hope they keep it that way.
3. At nearly HALF the price on many Tamiya hop ups, emailing someone with a list of part numbers isn't really that harsh.
4. I have yet to see any US online shop match rc champ for customer service and shipping speed. (think: order on Sunday...get your stuff Tuesday kinda speed)

Once you've ordered from them 1 time, you'll see how easy it really is. Recently on many of the Tamiya threads, I've seen a lot of people being recommended to rc champ. The first thing people do is knock how "hard" the ordering process is. Then after they've ordered, they come back and say "wow" that was easy. 'And I saved $XX.XX amount of money AND got my stuff faster than ANY US online shop will ship it'

Then everyone says...'we told you so'.

In short, give the place a try. Theres a good reason so many veteran Tamiya racers recommend it. And if you don't like them after trying them, you can always go back to ordering from here in the states and paying twice as much for Tamiya stuff with slower shipping....

Anyone have the current parts bag A, B and C numbers? I think the only up to date service cards are in the R kit or the kits with the L or T bodies. My RM manual is actually and RX from the cars I picked up in September with M bodies and is dated 1997. The part numbers show discontinued for a couple of them.

I too was very worried about dealing with Champ, but after talking to Darkseid and Core (they are both local to me) I decided to give it a shot. It was just as fast as was described, I ordered on monday and had it before thursday....from over seas...I was astounded.

I want to attach the entire email chain for the last bit of parts I ordered so everyone can see how easy it is. The bottom is the first email. It was so easy.

Paypal does the currency convertion for you, I could not be more happy with the service from them. American companies need to take a lesson from them.

Dear Mr.****,

Thank you very much for sending us money sir. Here is a tracking number for
your order sir.

If you need anything again, please let's me know sir.

I'm giving it a try with this for parts bags A, B and C:

to RC Champ

"I am looking for Tamiya Part Numbers for F103:

9415328 or the current part number if discontinued.
9404879
9404880"

We'll see what it brings back.

Masa is the man at RC Champ. It's a great store, and where I'm going to order my 103 from soon.
