Default So where does everyone shop...

Where does everyone shop and get there stuff online. Im looking for some hopups for my t3 but dont know where to look. If you ask me about all the offroad aftermarket manf and good places to shop i got it all, but onroad im a lil lost. What aftermarket manf are worth it. For example i want some aluminum steering blocks for my t3 but refuse to pay 100 bucks for xray parts. Thats insane. So where should i look and better yet where should i not lol. Thanks guys.
p.s. is the search function working ok for everyone yet mine isnt.

Who says i dont? So if i want a hopup or part my lhs doesnt have i shouldnt get it???
Unless your lhs is amain im sure you are going to be wanting stuff that is not available to you locally. I have spent prob over 5 grand at my lhs since i started doing this maybe more. Dont think i can support them any better then that. Thanks for your help though

If they are decently competitive then by all means but if they don't support/stock what you want then try..

StormerHobbies - Expensive shipping for some reason but massive selection and they seem to restock fast and often

A-Main Hobbies - Very good site with good brand support and discounted/free shipping

RC Market - One of the best HK shops and better still WILL ship goops unlike the vast majority

RC Mushroom - Very good place to get cheap rubber in bulk

These are just my commonly used shops however as stated above IF your local shop can support you then its often worth a small difference in price.
