I have been looking around on this site for days now and decided to join tonight. I am new to the rock crawling gig and would like to get started. I have had several rc's from a Losi and HPI. I am going to tempt the rock buster build and use the Bender sw2. Could I get a detailed parts list and a good places to get my parts? Any help would be great. Thank you for your help and time.

I would change all of the tamiya screws to the Du-bro hex drive they will not strip out as much as the Tamiya.
