I always use 3M tape, never had a problem with something not sticking or coming undone in a race, yet its easy to get off and leaves 0 residue. Plus if you double pad it in the grooves of the chassis it will give your electronics better cushion during hard landings.

Tower shows it $10 cheaper. Weird.

Should not matter. Amain does not normally raise prices because tower is out of stock. Maybe they are charging a premium.

So, similar to the instructions provided by Schelle with the hubs, the two holes on their hub (we'll call Schelle A and B) are similar to the B and C hole positions in the stock AE hub, using the aluminum 'A' insert in the hub, in the 'up' position, with a 1mm, or if you have it, a .75mm shim, to get the stock hub position.

You are correct.

Seeing as how AE has it for 69.99...Amain is still a great price. Tower could have it for a dollar...they don't have any to sell.

Tower might have got some in and sold them all on preorder. Amain didnt even have the chassis listed until today. So they didnt have preorder to fufill

haha, these days preorder means sometime in the distant future. Yeah, I saw the tower preorder earlier this week. I dont like paying for an open ended release day. I went looking for about 10 things today, 8 were out of stock....annoying

Rarely do they both have parts for the same price. Kits yes. Parts I usually find tower is cheaper. But has less stock(prob due to being cheaper)

Tower is better than Amain on every AE price I have compared.
