I have to say that I do not like this, put it in your cart
and see system. I do like the, Wish List set-up.
They sent me an E-mail with some sorry exscuse why
they made the pricing system change,but i'm not buying
it. I think this change will cost them in the long run.

They already had the damm discount prices listed with the part.
Now you have to put it in your cart to see the discount price.
Not everyone is going to play this game. If you got there letter
you would understand that your cart price is the same A-Main
price they have always had.

If you notice its all HORIZON exclusive products on that list. They have a MAP (Mandatory advertised Price) price that they have to follow. Just a way around it because the price is NOT advertised to general public.

Yes , they have to have their prices marked as MAP pricing to the public eye , but when you put it in your cart it is the same price they had before they were told to use MAP pricing . Guessing Amain was taking some business away from horizon and they didn`t like that .

Same thing with Bmain also .

As I do like A-main hobbies and I shop there sometimes, but the prices mentioned above are not discounts. You can find those same prices and cheaper on other sites. For example:

Amain:
Losi 8ight buggy rtr REG.$649.99 once you add to cart it is $559.99

Other website:
Losi 8ight 1/8 4WD RTR w/ and Spektrum - $554.99

You posted:
"Losi xxx-cr kit REG.$224.99 once you add to cart it is $209.99"

I was just telling you because thats one of the only prices I remember. $209 is nothing special.

Does noone have a local hobby shop anymore? Almost always if you find a place doing that with the prices if you give a local shop the chance to try to meet that price they will if possible. Most of the time a rc track is tied to a rc shop so it only makes sense to try to support the place were we go to have fun!

(RANTING) ALL hobby stores withing 15 miles of me are ALL jokes. They don't sell ANY racing products besides Losi. The guys that work at all the local hobby stores don't know crap. One of them had the audacity to put Mugen down. I asked one hobby store worker, "why don't you sell Mugen parts". His response was, "they are a lot better cars out there for cheaper". I was like, "O-KAY". I stick to either Amainhobbies or Carolinasrc. But mostly Carolinasrc. It would be nice to have a local hobby shop close to me that is actually worth something. I have two local tracks close to me, but both do not have hobby stores. It's because of location, which is understandable. The sad thing is, just to get some arms for my buggy, I gotta go ONLINE!!!
