There are quite a few of us scattered around the area. There is a Hobbytown in Gainesville but not much in the way of crawler parts. There is New Red Hobbies in Ocala that has some crawler stuff and they also hold some scaler events. I know of nothing in the Chiefland or Crystal River area.

You have a scaler already?

Yes i have a Axial Honcho with a few mods that i am building up for class 2.

I know Hobbytown in gainesville and will never set foot in that store again as i have had one the worst shopping experiences i have had in my life there.

Will check out Newreds next time i am in ocala, i am pretty sure i have been by there once a while back.

Sorry to here you had that kind of shopping experience I know all the guys up there at hobby town and the mangement and there all good guys.

I know NewRed has been trying there best to bring in axial parts and keep scaler stuff in stock they also will order in any thing you want but then if your going to do that you could always go on line...
