Few and far between. Check rctech for "items wanted"Wheels and tires can be found at rcmart. They are the same as the HPI car. The best bet is ebay but people price them like they rare but not so. Tamiya sold tons of them so a spare or two is a good investment "if" you are going to race them. I our F1 series the trick is to remove the front diff, toss the dogbones and shaft and run it as a 2wd. F1 is usually silvercan but we let them run a 27T brushed or 17.5 so they can compete together. It works well with the right tires. There will be another F1 Builders Cup race this spring. My teamate and I will be running the MLP 201's as 2wd with 19T motors in that race against the d-drives. Should be fun.
