Default DDM is now stocking FG stock parts.

As title, DDM (davesmotors.com) is now stocking FG stock spares for all models, including on road and F1. I wouldn't normally make this kind of post, but for people like me who own an HPI and an FG, it's really fantastic news, and I wanted to pass it along. A real 'one stop shop' is a holy grail in this hobby.

Should also be good for those of you in the US that are having trouble with FG parts supply.

FG Supply buys direct from FG in Germany. We carry everything from FG, except items they resell i.e. hitec items, or stuff that available at a local hobby shop.

let's hope it's true, everyone claims they have all FG stuff, then when you call them and ask for a part, they tell you they don't have it. I just hope they stock everything for sure...........I'm not gonna get excited thats for sure, infact, in my opinion, the only person who always has just about everything is Chris at Big Boys.

This news broke yesterday. When did you call them? Have a look at the site, it's all in stock. You can't order something from DDM that's out of stock, their system doesn't work like that. Are you sure we're talking about the same people?

Anyway, the point of this, is not where they come from, or who's the better FG supplier. You guys are always complaining there's no FG supply in the US, well now there's yet another for you to check when you are looking for stuff.

Also, for us that own HPI Bajas as well, it's great, cos nobody has the range that DDM has for the Baja, and now they have FG stuff too, so it's all good.

That is so awesome. DDM rocks. I ordered a lot of stuff from DDM over the years for my gopeds, never had a problem.

Are you guys gonna get the new 4WD FG Baja? I need that.

FG has over 4000 part numbers. We will probably not stock them all, but everything people need for the more popular models we will be certain to
stock. Also, if there is a part you want but don't see it on our site, email us and we can look into it for you.

I know that a lot of you guys that dont have Bajas arent familiar with DDM.
When Dave and his crew do something you can be sure its done properly.

This IS NOT DDM.



This IS!

I can say I am not honestly suprised that DDM is getting into FG parts, they have grown so much the past few years with hobby items it is amazing. I remember first dealing with them and people in the hobby would say DDM who? Now everyone knows them. Nice part of DDM also is they'll hook up with local hobby shops and supply them with parts at great prices....Good Job Ryan and Brad for hooking up on FG items.

like I said, everyone says they have stuff, I mean everyone says the same thing. when you call, they don't have it. You guys know what I'm talking about. Anyway, Atleast it's good to know that DDM is getting into the FG parts thing. I have nothing but good things to say about DDM. ordered 2 motors from them, no problems. its all good.........
