Default Where to buy 1/5th or 1/6th scale in Canada?

Just wondering if anyone can help me.... I'm looking for a large scale RTR MT (MCD MT to be exact) here in Canada somewhere. It's much easier to have parts etc. shipped back & forth if in the same country.
I've checked out largescalerc-dot-com, but it's in the US.
Any ideas?
Thanks.

There is currently no MCD dealer in Canada. There is a guy in BC who is trying to get set-up, but I haven't heard any progress from him in a long time.

Ordering from the USA is fine. I got my MCD from RCNuts, but LargeScaleRC is good too.

Hi guys. Ya the RC thing for me is very part time but I'm still going to set up a small large scale rc shop here and a web site www.gascanrc.com just for Canada. I have a MCD Racerunner here in a box brand new and some spare parts as well as the one I run. Hey Bribeguy did you decide so keep your racerunner? I've been doing some interesting mods to the shocks on my Racerunner and now it'll do huge jumps all day without breaking shocks.

Ya, I kept the Racerunner and couldn't be happier!

I added some more hop ups and the thing is running great!

Zap713, what are these mods you've done to your shocks?

I put shocks from the Baja 5b on the back of the MCD. I made my own shock tower to take the longer shocks and I used the uppers from the Baja as well so the shock had clearance. Now the shocks never bottom or break no matter how much or how big I jump. But with a locked center diff it breaks driveline parts like CVD axle or drive gears plastic ones so I will put a open diff in the center which will solve this problem and will finally be able to fully run with the 1/8th scale jammins on our track which has 10 jumps per lap. I'll post some pics and video when I get the new diff.

Sounds good.

I was wondering if there was a way to swap on Baja 5B shocks.........they're so nice and smooth (even if everyone I know that runs a baja has snapped at least one shaft).

As for breaking driveline stuff...........you must be a madman behind the wheel Zap713! I've been running mine hard for a year now, and I haven't done any driveline damage. A couple shock towers, a rear wing, 2 servos, a pair of lower shock forks, and a set of rear wheel bearings is all I've managed to kill!
