you have the wrong number`s...
kits sell for less, 30% to 25%
motor`s and battery`s are not much different either....
parts are as high as 35% to 40%
When I buy my radio`s , battery`s even motor`s I buy them from my local racing facility in order to support the fun I enjoy ....
Its not like the track is making out big time on a $10 entry fee , it only help`s pay some of the overhead ....
Sorry for this post..
I like my local race track owner`s a lot..
I try to show it with my support !
