Yup Hi octane is gone.

I just bought a Traxxas Slash last week and I've been finding the guy at Kelowna speedway & hobby is very helpful and seems to know his stuff. I don't how much crawler stuff he'd have though.

There's also A B C Hobby & Shaver here that has stuff

High octane treated me like crap when i was just getting into rc's . I had no knowledge. I bought my traxxas from speedway, and literally thousands of dollars worth of stuff over the years. He would greyhound it all to me overnight. Just used my credit card to pay. My rc sat on the shelf for a year, kinda forgot about it. Got lookin at rc crawlers and made a few calls, high octane nor speedays would let me use my credit card to purchase anything. Dummies. I ended up buying two axials, and all my upgrade parts from rcpitstop in langley. Large inventory, and very helpful, and still overnight
