Default Fastest place to get Tamiya parts?

I am i need of an aluminum diff joint set and speedtechrc is out of stock. I need this ASAP so I can finish the build (snapped both plastic ones). Where is the best fastest shipping to CA online shop for this part? None of my local hobby shops have them.

rcmart.com usually has the largest selection of parts. However, they are dropping the ball these days. Things get shipped out at least three days after ordering and I can't get the parts in time for the race in 2 weeks. Unless, that is if your are willing to pay for express shipping. Most competitive online stores these days ship out items the same day or at least the day after.

RCMarket, fast shipping to NC... you are in Cali... so no problem there. Tons and tons of hard to find Tamiya parts.

+1 on promptness of RCmarket. Just make sure you order enough to offset the initial shipping cost.

Oh, and I'd be nice if the pages loaded just a tad bit faster and allowed me to log in using Firefox.

I assume for a 416 or TA05? Give ultimate hobbies in Orange, CA a call as they have a fairly nice selection of Tamiya parts although it's not online. Muchhobby in Canada is another good place assuming you have a week to spare. The other places have already been mentioned.

That's my only complaint of RCMarket, is the slow webpage. But he chats on RCTech, so there is good customer service from him.

Rc champ has everything, and they are fast shippers once the order is complete. They are in Japan, but usually it's less than a week to get stuff.
