Default Thunder Tiger spare parts

Where are people getting their TT engine spares from now that TT4U are no more?

I've been searching the web and cannot find a site that stocks the full range of TT46PRO spares like TT4U used to.

Merry Christmas,

Last I heard was that Tower Hobbies was still inventorying everything they aquired from TT4U.

Joe, reckon you are better off buying a new engine.........by my experience parts are too expensive when shipped to Australia/ NZ. Buy the engines from Darrol Cady, regards TH,

Thanks for the comments. Here is what i found as I followed up the leads:

Graves do not stock the TT46 parts, but replied to me straight away and were helpful.

Tower Hobbies got back to me the next day and showed me where the TT46 parts were. They are listed in the marine (rather than air) engine section which is why I couldn't find them when I first looked. They have all the parts and the prices are similar to what I was paying from TT4U.com last year.
