You could try Tower Hobbies ,was just trying to give you the cheapest option.
When it comes down to it you should go to your local hoby shop and see what cars they carry and support parts wise.
Although they may be a bit more expensive atleast you will know where you can get the parts nice and quick.

Thats why I sugested the Kyosho v1s
comes with a 15 size motor single speed good to learn with.
Can be upgraded with 2 speed and different motor and heaps of other things
check out the v1s thread on this forum.

The VoneS is a great car. It is made as a sport vehicle, but it can still be raced amongst "race" vehicles quite effectively. A very impressive package and always one of the cars that should be suggested to anyone who wants to do more then cruise in a parking lot.

i have the ntc3 and i love it. the only problem i have had with it is for some reason the lugnuts keep flying off. i'm sure the mtx and v one are better racing ones, but my ntc3 is pretty competetive. i just gotta learn how to turn those corners
