I use auto parts stores, club mates, wreckjing yards, new car dealerships, speed shops.... It all depends on what you are looking for, how much you want to pay and what you want to use it for. Brake Pads and tyres for instance, I would insist on new, but interior trim from the wreckers is fine.

THR has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
u put interior trim on a race car???

id say tyres depends on budget. FRenault ones from the top teams are 10 times cheaper second hand! and still good for 200 miles... ok.. half a second down.. but depends where u r on the grid in the first place.

THR- Patto races in Historic Touring Cars, therefore he has to have full trim etc, as per original.

I tried second hand tyres and found them to be false economy, they were half the price and had a quarter of the life.

Depends- I've heard of some of some Gemini competitors who normally buff the life out of new tyres, and usually lock them up first time out, opted to just go straight for 2nd hand rubber.
