I use amain, carolinasrc, and losipartshouse.com. Losipartshouse always has killer deals, but there selection is somewhat limited.

i have heard rcmushroom.com and rcmarket.com are good but they are in japan. so there is a long shiping process. i have always been nerves about ordering stuff from other countries so thats another reson i never ordered from them. if it wasn't for that they have very good prices.

I dont order from them, even though they own Losi just because they have horrible prices. I made a big order and on amain it was $455, and on horizon it was around $500.

amainhobbies.com is the best. Period.

I've literally spent THOUSANDS of dollars with them, never had a single issue. They've always responded to my emails in a timely manner, and their prices can't be beat.

for tamiya, yokomo and mugen no one beats champ rc


http://www.rc-champ.co.jp/Champ_Inte...onal_index.htm

shipping from Japan is a little high but the savings are so good, a df 03 with a ton of hop ups was going to run $500 + to get from tower, ebay and such ended up costing $330 delivered from champ. When you can save $100 on a kit alone its easy to pay that $42 shipping on a bigger kit, all there spairs and hop ups are discounted also
