    Most of the big online hobby stores are surely worth a search for stock?

      Tower Hobbies has the TF2 in stock (that's where I got mine), and they're running discounts through October.....join the Super Saver club for $1.99 (two-month trial membership) and you'll get even more of a discount, free shipping, etc. You can't go wrong. If funds are tight, choose the EZ Pay option....they'll break it down into 3 monthly payments for ya. ....and because of that, I'm already planning my NEXT TF2 build.

        I was going to suggest other sites.

        Looks like RPP and OmniModels has them as well.

        Maybe try Ebay as well.

        I am about to order another TF2 to start building as well.

          Ok thanks guys . like i said its been a while sence i have built an rc iam not sure anymore who has what these days . so far this is going to be my begining set up the tf2 running light leaf springs 2.2 tires with clod buster body spektrum dx42 radio with there reciever and a tekin esc with hihtec titainium waterproof servos. if they still make the waterproof titainium ones .Plus full light kit . And the only reason iam choosing the clod is that its a hard body and has better detail then the lexan ones.i wish i could find a mid 90s dodge 3/4ton body i would make an exact copy of my actual truck witch is a 98 diesel dodge .but how does that sound for a set up ? decent ?

              You don't see many TF2's with 2.2 wheels, so check and double check you'll get clearance. Any tyre imho above 106mm starts to look a bit monster truck.

              The stock black leafs with no helpers soon bed in and give great flex after a couple of hours trail time.

              ESC wise try to get one that is crawler specific, with drag brake. In the UK we mostly use the mtronics rockc but doubt you have that your side of the pond.

                  Usually for a 1/10 scale RC,it should be a 7 inch figure that works.You may have to cut them in order for them to fit.

                  I have Lara Croft driving some of my others;






                  I just have not found a driver in who I would like to drive my TF2 or my Defender yet,,,but I am still looking.

                  Also,as for the wheel,I tried running some 1.9's on my Defender and they kept hitting the body almost to the point that the tread grabbed the body,so trial and error,but I am still going to see possibly just a liitle larger,maybe a 1.7.

                      For the tf2 you need a small figure.. I suggest ladies because usually are shorten then men's...
                      I think any figure near to 6 inch is great...
                      Look my tf2 and you can see wich one I have used,,,

                        I've only been into crawling for about a year and a half. first for me was an LNC, then built my own starting out with a set of trex60s and a twolf weld chassis and r2 trans. I now have the same a set up with minor electronic and mechanical upgds on an scx10 frame
