Questions?? Traxxas RC Hobby Store?

Anyone here dealt with Traxxas RC Hobby Store?
Prices are unreal but only do Western Union or Wire Transfer and only send goods by Best Way. They have paypal/visa etc. pic down the bottom of the screen but is dull.

Western Union or Wire Transfer??? That's insane. You might at was well just save time and burn your money.

What about the paypal , mastercard, and visa signs at the bottom of the page?
I added an item to the cart but didn't want to register to get to the checkout.....
And $154 for a Wraith kit ?
Something smells funny

Looking at some of the items they have in stock and quantity on hand can't be correct. I also got the $2.50 shipping option for international.

This site has been around for years because I went to it one time when I was shopping for rc cars about 4 years ago and didnt order from them because its so obvious that its not a real site its funny.

Nearly ever rc hobby shop is almost an exclusively Traxxas shop so why waste the time there?
