I don’t get you guys…..
What is your problem with LPH???
First, it has a store front so it is NOT just an internet store (not that there is any thing wrong with that).
Second, it has one of the better services. As appose to Stormer-Hobbies and Tower-Hobbies, which are considered to be two of the bigger hobby shops, that I had problem and difficulties in getting service, with LPH the communication is grate the information is liable and product service is excellent.

If you wont buy the car or on other car for that meter, I wouldn’t be able to race at your local track?!?!?!?!?! Or it is just that you will feel shame for not letting your LHS to rob you blind.?!?
People should make there own calculation and buy where ever they feel is good for them. If your local dealer is your friend and you wish to support his business – that is you choice, but keep in mind that there are more than some people that relay on these internet shops to get parts etc..

With the internet companies, they offer no support, in the ways of help, tracks, and racing. I think all hobby shops should be on a level playing field in this department, and let the services determine who gets the business.
I only bought a couple of small $$ items to show my lhs owner and prove to Horizon. I will save the buggy purchase and other parts to support my LHS!!
I feel like you don’t get the point…
What you did was spite and spite alone!!! There was no gain for you LHS nor you from you act.
What you did was pure trashing another guy's business buy trying to demolish LPH relations with HORIZON.
Did you think for once that maybe this guy is worth while for HORIZON to give priority to??? Could be his turnover is much bigger with losi part than your LHS???
I'm sorry to disappoint you but it sound you don’t know jack in the business world.
Your action with the parts will not get your LHS the parts/kits any faster, it will just cause damage to a lot more people that the LPH group.
And by the way, there is a big disappointment in your future, LOSI PARTS HOUSE will not be shut down…
Not only that, it is allowed by law to sell everything in there store.
If Horizon wanted to holed delivery dates to final consumers they should not have shipped it anywhere and hold it in their warehouse.
