more than likely they will tell you that the sand is out back, go pound some.
Yep, and then will complain profusely that the online retailers are stealing their business.

The springs are easy to get and replace, have them hanging on the wall here.

Scott Brown & some our fastest use the same radio as yours.

You're right, my bad was reading the wrong post.

I would actually agree with Cherry on this, fix it yourself.

I'm curious as to how your shop has springs on the wall though George, Horizon is TERRIBLE when it comes to getting radio parts. Sadly

While I was wrong on about it being an esc. What online retailer will accept a return on a used esc?

Yea it's kind of ironic. One of the early hurdles for online stores was that people didn't think they would be able to return items easily, so they went out of their way to have awesome return policies, where LHS's seem to be throwing away one of their main advantages over the online shops.

The problem is the successful online shops know how to operate a business at scale and focus on things like customer service, while the LHS operates their business like a hobby and relies on it's patrons to be loyal and to make sacrifices to stay open.

I'm not trying to bash the LHS's but really want to get the message out that they can't just sit back and let the racers take care of them, but must operate as a business focused on customer service to keep the doors open.

Anyway, sorry the rant, back to the B5M!

"Be Happy With Your Purchase!

AMain.com wants you to be completely satisfied with your shopping experience. If, for any reason, you don't like or change your mind about an item you purchased from AMain.com, you may return New and Unused merchandise (with original contents and packaging) within 30 days of the original purchase for store credit or a refund to the original payment method; refunds to the original payment method will be charged a restocking fee of 15% of the purchase price.

NOTE: AMain.com is not responsible for return shipping, nor any fees associated with return shipping, unless the item is found to be damaged, defective, or incorrect."
If they gave you store credit on a USED item great...but

You're quoting their return policy on NEW items, why, I wasn't talking about new items?

You can't go wrong with a 4PK s/r/x....whatever Futaba is on now. Futaba makes good stuff. The Spektrum is entry level....I'll leave it at that. I use to really hate the Airtronics radios. I especially hated the M11 so its quite a surprise that I absolutely love everything about the M12. Taking my new found fondness of Airtronics a step further I'll go out there and say that the MT4 is the best radio you can get for your money. Its like a baby m12 for half the cost. If I had a budget that's what I'd buy.

For the price you can't beat a Savox 1257 or 1258. I've had one of those Protek servos do weird things....it acted like an old JR servo when the centering pin in the servo case would break or wear, the servo would constantly try to find center....it looked like it was glitching whenever the car was still.
When your module went out on your KO Euros was it glitching or steering get stuck turned, sometimes stay full throttle for a bit and have binding issues? Cause I think I'm having this issue right now and was trying to figure it out. I've changed sensor wire, receiver and a servo but it's still does it. And it's only doing it intermittent. Super annoying issue.
