Default Best price online shop for an RC8?

what is the best price you guys have found for an RC8 from an online hobby shop? Price must include shipping.

So far, ultimatehobbies has it for $449 shipped, anyone find any better?

I don't think you'll find it any cheaper (shipped) than that, unless you want to go the eBay route... That's a great price!

I don't know about you guys, but your local track or hobbyshop always have the best price. meaning that if your buy from your local hobbystore, you'll keep it in buisness.

I can not say that I share the same opinion. Some LHS's act like you owe them something for stocking something that you are looking for. Face it, there are too many online-only retailers that have better prices. It's called competition.

Are you the same guy that feels compassion for that gas station in your neighborhood that is charging 10-15 cents more a gallon than everyone else?

but your local hobby shop has overhead. they dont buy 100k worth of 1 car/car parts, they dont sell nationwide and actually have a store front instead of a warehouse.....now if my lhs stocks parts but not the car i might just buy it off line but i buy everything else from my lhs including tires

anyone got anything better? $449 shipped still is the best price I am finding, with killer being out of stock.

Looking to buy a NIB kit now.

Just ordered mine from LosiPartsHouse Thanks aaronb73

Does anyone know if the newer kits come with the service pack Associated were giving away? Or should I just contact Team Associated directly?

Cheers

Falcon
