Default anywhere that sells spinners, gear, and wheels all in one place?

for racing planes?
I need a gear for this Kangke F3D, something about 2" wide at the top, 9" or so track, 3" tall or so.
1.5" spinner (would really prefer tru turn)
Racing wheels 2.5" or so
Maybe even wheel pants?

Any places online where I can find everything in one place?

Thanks
Jeremy

lets see.......

start at lcsperformance.com carbon gear, wheels - whatnot.... He also has spinner nuts (not spinners) Thats 2.5 out of 3

spinners - either tru-turn or dave brown are my recommendations . Direct from them or from Tower or wherever.

Jett has 1.5" spinners to fit his engines.

Hi Bob,
I looked at their site previously, I might have to live with a gear that doesn't really fit or make my own I think, the fuse is only 2" wide where the gear mounts on, I guess that quickie gear wouldn't stick out to far past, Not really crazy about how they look but I guess they only need to be functional :P I was just hoping I could find a place that had everything I needed and avoid having to pay shipping from multiple places. Since I'm in Canada and most places seem to want to ship UPS that means broker fee's on everything even when shipping mail there are handling fee's for each package and when you're only getting a $15 item, a $5 to $10 handling fee on top of shipping and import taxes gets annoying

something of note...

do not mount the gear on the fuselage fwd of the wing. the plane will be a ******* to land. Too far forward.

Under the wing, the width will not matter much. Although you may be locked in to something by now.

Sadly the way the wing is built, I don't think mounting on the wing is an option, there is a flat spot for the gear ahead of the wing, I think I may just make my own gear and do an extreme sweep back so the wheels are under the leading edge of the wing.
