Go Go Hobbies has a few, but can order in all the stuff you need. I called the owner on another issue this morning and that's what he told me. Special order parts take about a week to come in, sometimes less.

They are in Coquitlam.

Go Go Hobbies & Toys

Cam's the owner. He's an Asian guy who's family used to own a small grocery store in East Van.... not sure what that has to do with it, but he's a cool guy nonetheless.

I remember I had a black motor, it was the fastest on the market you can buy, and I had "eraser" slicks, shit was unreal.

Black motors burn out in like hours though

usually car with rear motor chassis is better on straight road and acceleration, while the front motor car has a better performance on curves and jumps
