Try Tower Hobbies

They carry just about everything for the current HPI cars/trucks. Just go to the "Parts Express" page on their site and you should find what you need.

Tower hobbies is the best online hobby shop. They've got all the parts, and the shipping is unmatched. You can also give great lakes hobbies a try. They have the best prices, but they're website sucks. It's better to just call them.....

Tower website good? i had only heard horrible bad things about them, especially customer service. I am pretty sure HPI parts can be found almost anywhere so why bother buy online and pay shipping? You can go to HPI's website and look for a dealer near you. Its better than buy online and wait for a week.

tower hobbies, horrible????
What planet are you from again? I have about 11 friends who all deal with tower hobbies and have not had the first problem yet, with parts or customer service. Since we have no LHS or "local Dealer" online shopping is our only option. The hpi "dealer locater isn't worth a damn. Plus, if I go to a hobby shop about 1 1/2 hours away, they usually have to order it anyway, so why wait and pay a hobby shops inflated price, when tower will get it to you quicker.

You have got to be kidding me. In another post you said that it was fine to buy stuff online, why bother supporting you LHS, now you say why bother paying shipping..........

FYI Tower Hobbies is quite good, and I have never had any problems with them and I buy INTERNATIONAL.

Also who is this national champ that you are great buddies with? Names please not stupid "name dropping".
