Zoom Room and RcSports

Zoom Room:
I have been dealing with them for about a year now. Almost all of my crawler parts have come from there. All my Micro RS4 parts (spares) have come from there as well. Roz and Henry are always friendly and polite and they have cut me a deal on parts due to the volume I have bought in the last year (dang crawler). Which is something you can't do with an online source.

Plus, with me racing up in Newmarket this season, they are just closer to my home to drive up to pickup parts after work. I hate driving into Woodbridge @ 5pm.. gaaaah. Driving along HWY9 is easier. That and Cloddyman has been working on custom plates for my crawler and well, anyone that knows him... knows that he is there on a regular basis.

BTW - If anyone has not been to the new store .. GO CHECK IT OUT! :GRIN:

Rc Sports Woodbridge:
I purchased a Micro RS4 from RC sports in Woodbridge in Dec 06, but other then small things like CA glue or deans plugs, I haven't really dealt with them since. I had purchased some savage parts from them back in the day.

I have no issues when dealing with RC Sports. The guys are nice, love to sit and chat about just anything. Their shop is huge and have a really good selection of well .. everything.

My tip for anyone ... don't go shopping around at 4-5 different shops. Pick one shop (or two) and deal with those 1-2 ONLY. Once they get to you know you, you build up trust and basically a customer to owner relationship and its all good.

You wouldn't go around to a new dentist each time your teeth hurt .. would you? ... lol.

Spectrum Hobbies, Whitby/Oshawa

Everytime I go to that shop I have a good time. He tells everything I need to know about the stuff I'm buying.

He also has tunes pumping and sweet prices!!!

Golden Horizon. Best prices, awesome service and they also make parts and hop ups. I took my RC8 brushless conversion in yesterday and show3e them and said I wanted a new center dif top plate so I can mount the esc there and have fans above and below, and they will make it

most people know GH stuff allready, but they are really working hard at improving their stuff all the time. Now they send out parts they make to an independant canadian company to have them xrayed for flaws before being put to market.... Monday I get a whole bunch of goodies from them woohoo.

I found Forbes Hobbies in Cambridge a little while ago and I like them a lot plus it's only 20 minutes away from my house.
