Default Where can I find Vendetta Parts?

My vendetta is bone stock. Everybody at the track took out their vendetta's now that the dirt track is all done and my vendetta looks like crap compared to everybodys. Where is a good place or sight to go to for some upgrades?

Your local hobbyshop is a great place to start.

Where are all of the people at the track getting their upgrades from?

Default Vendetta Parts

1. Tower Hobbys stocks all the Duratrax Brand parts for the Vendetta,
2. There is an aftermarket company Atomic (not sure of exact spelling which make parts, The Toyz has most of them I believe.

3. If you go to E-bay and type in 'Vendetta' in the toysandhobbies/remote control section you will get a list of "Buy it Now" sales, if you check near the bottom of the page you will see a message something like 'show all 280.."
You will see 5+ vendors selling both Duratrax and other companies parts
I got a good deal from 'Atomic Hobbies n Games'

4. Remember to check shipping, also many parts are for either the original Vendetta Buggy and not the ST. Since the ST is wider, about anything to do with suspension has an ST and a buggy version.

5. Also the Vendetta can use regular 1/10 scale wheels and premount tires.
It can not use RC18, losi mini-t or other wheel without adapters.

6. Also the motor size in pinion shaft diameter are different from other 1/18ths
Be careful when buying Castle creations Mambas or other motors designed for the M18 or the RC18.
7. The battery tray only wants to fit stick packs not side be sides or other common configurations. You can modify the chassis by Dreameling off some of the plastic holding the battery in place and then use the more common 6 cell packs. Apogee LIPO 1000mah short packs fit without modifcation, 1500s need modification.

www.egrracing.com sellsthe atomic parts for the vendetta....
they are Atomic and are in Hong Kong. Theparts are in stock and ship right away. The shipping takes about 7-10 days....

stay away from www.hkshobby.com this guy is the American distributor of Atomic. He operates his business very poorly. Almost everything I ordered wound up being on back-order and it took several weeks to get the parts I paid for. He still owes me 2 parts.....
