need help finding parts

hello everyone. I'm just getting back into the hobby and i am rebuilding my beaten up first gen tmaxx. this truck is mostly just for bashing. i need several parts and have gotten some at my lhs but they dont cary every thing.

i need a new motor and am considering a sirio .18. i replaced the stock arms with rpms wide arms and now need longer turnbuckles. i had titanium ones but the plastic ends still bent or broke. what can be done to fix this? and lastly for now anyway i need tires wheels and am considering larger tires. i have seen soo many new tread patterns and designs to choose from.

where are the best places to order these or any other parts i might need along the line on the internet?

Try www.towerhobbies.com www.rcplanet.com www.amainhobbies.com and to get the part numbers for some of the parts go to www.traxxas.com and get an exploded view of your truck, or maybe the 2.5 version since you upgraded to the wider a arms, Lunsford makes some nice titanium turnbuckles http://www.lunsfordracing.com/mm5/merchant.mvc , and just get some new traxxas ball ends to put on them and replace the broken ones http://cgi.ebay.com/Traxxas-Rod-End...temQQimsxZ20090106?IMSfp=TL090106119003r19184 , hope this helps get you started...
