Default Good site for on-road shopping?

I have been in off-road for a while but i would like to give on-road a try and i usually use amainhobbies, but they dont have much on-road stuff so i was just wondering what a good site for on-road cars, accessories and parts is?

I'm a big fan of www.ashfordhobby.com Robert Poage is the owner and the guy on the phone. His web-site has real time inventory levels, so no more guessing if the part you need is in stock!. I also like the feature that let's you put items in your own basket, for future ordering, which comes in handy for the wife!

Ashford hobby carries top notch stuff and has a pretty good assortment of onroad gear. Friendly, knowledgeable and fast shipping.

Ashford Hobbies has my vote. Rob supports the hardcore racer like no other. And 99% of the time ships the same day you order. I always get my parts the next day(I'm only one state away).

Kyosho!!

Yes, I am sponsored by them.

If you rule out Kyosho (don't because we make great cars), but if you rule them out I would get a Mugen 1/8th scale and an X-ray 1/10th scale....


Buy Kyosho!!

You guys are spot on I support my LHS as much as I can but the only online place that you should buy from is Ashford hobby the best customer service on the net bar none. No disrespect to any others but I go with what I know. Robert will bend over backwards for you.

Shipping to middle America (Nebraska) from the east coast two days tops that is about as fast as gets. On top of that he charges you real shipping charges. No deep discount price on parts just to turn around and gouge with shipping.

I dont have an LHS that carries any onroad. I deal with kamikazetoysandhobbies.com. They can get anything I need, and quickly. I was the first one to have a Evolva M3 in the states, and thats where I bought. Great people to deal with

I have been doing business with Robert at Ashford Hobbies for over 10 years. He is top notch when it comes to on-road rc racing info and inventory. I might add, it looks from all the responses here, most agree.
