WA has very few parts, you will end up having to order from outside the country. Shipping costs can get quite high, of the $1000 I just spent on parts, I think I spent around $100-120 in just shipping. Duties on top of that will only add more.
Thank you dark shift. That's the kind of answer I was looking for. So if I buy a WE (which is the most likely scenario) I should upgrade all those parts you mentioned? I guess my question is how do I know what parts to upgrade? How am I supposed to determine which parts are crap and which are good? That is what I'm trying to understand in this thread.
