    I had been getting some here and there and everything was mismatched and to me seemed costly. So I scoured the internet and found a west coast company that had all I needed and more. Flat rate shipping is the only drawback so make big orders to last a year or so and it'll pan out in the end. Plus side is all the hardware is identical.

    Mrmetric.com and they'll have 20% coupons every now and then that'll offset the shipping. Everything is individually bagged and labeled so I'll put them all in a shoe box and just poke around until I find what I need. I get all allenhead button heads unless I need something specific. I also got some m3 and m3.5 rods to cut down as hinge pins for my M.Rage I crashed at about 60mph and lost a few.

    No bet made on your part. All bets must be placed before the race end. :D

    Ordered some Duratrax Deepwoods and a set of slightly stiffer springs for my Yeti 380. I've got a locked diff spool already and will attempt to prove to the naysayers that a Yeti can crawl. I'm going to drop to around a 2000kV motor and see what she can do. It just hangs on my wall and gets looked at all the time. Now to put it to use.

    Picked up a brushless cordless drill today. Excited to see how it fares. No hammer option, but it had more torque and mAh than their equivalent with the hammer option.
