Default Thunder Tigre's FM1E ... Where to get parts?

Hi all,

I am getting a Thunder Tigre FM1E motorcycle this week, and it needs the following parts [plus a couple others I can't think of right now]:

Front Fork assembly
Rear shock
Chassis plate separators

What's a good place to order these parts from?

Thanks!

Stock parts http://www.ehobbies.com/rc-parts-dep...-1e-parts.html I, ordered the carbon fiber chassis kit, tires-45 shore these are much better then stock get some, Crazy Nut is working on a front fork assembly should have it ready in month or so, it will be hydraulic from what I here, Have you run the bike yet?? steering set-up linkage is very important see the forum above. Hope this helps ya out. Driving A Bike is Like Flying Without Smokin

DraKhen99 What kind of stick packs do you plan on running?? ProMatch has some 3300's they all so have matched stick packs do you think it's worth the cash for matched stick packs?? we can't equalize them in a tray?? One more site http://groups.yahoo.com/group/radiocontrolmotorcycles/

Well, as I have had a Novak brushless in the past [i sent it in to get replaced, since it threw the motor shaft], ONLY use matched cells!!!

I used some cheapo 1700s, and they were 140 degrees after a run, hardly holdable... whereas my hand-built 2400 nicads were at about 110, just warm.

So i plan on using my 2400s, and maybe getting some 3300s or 3000s once i get some $$$ [likely in january]
