Home page. The revolving add, first one is the discount code.

If you're a tower club member, click "your account " on top of home page and log in, then you will see on lower right hand corner your promotional offers.

For tower club members the price comes to $409 shipped. Wow.. Just keeps getting cheaper.

I see it even cheaper than that again.

$469 and then $75 off $400.

If I were to add another $61 to the order, it would then drop down by $130!

So in theory, a 418 plus a savox 1251 for $400!! That's crazy cheap.

How are you getting $75 off at $400? Are you a Tower Club Gold?

I have $65 off at $400 and $75 of at $500.

If you are a member you get $75 off if you send $500. $60 off if you spend $400. It's worth the membership if you order every now and then because you get free shipping. It pays for itself. It was like only $9 for me to be a member.

I dunno, they are just the codes I have. They are under "my account"

I had them before even making a purchase and have no signed up to the $10 thingo. I'm just a newsletter member. Might be because I'm international and I get this in lieu of them deducting sales tax as it's too hard? I dunno.

Here is the list;

Coupon # Promotional Offer Good Thru
SAVE $10 on a $55.00 order 31-Jul-2014
SAVE $20 on a $110.00 order 31-Jul-2014
SAVE $40 on a $220.00 order 31-Jul-2014
SAVE $55 on a $300.00 order 31-Jul-2014
SAVE $75 on a $400.00 order 31-Jul-2014
SAVE $100 on a $530.00 order 31-Jul-2014
SAVE $125 on a $660.00 order 31-Jul-2014
SAVE $150 on a $790.00 order 31-Jul-2014

But it does say

"To the right are any promotional offers that are currently available to you exclusively. These offers cannot be shared with others. You must order using the email address attached to your customer account. Hurry and place your order today. Simply click the coupon code of an offer to place it in your Tower Hobbies shopping cart"

So who knows if they are bluffing or not.

Diffs front and rear are interchangeable... so are the suspension blocks. Arms, uprights, chubs are interchangeable but the 418 has a different design and dimensions on where the ballstuds go - the older ones can be kept as setup options (though i doubt if you'll ever need them).

Don't forget all the camber links and the ball studs themselves

The servo mount works on both too.
