Just because you are a tool does not make you a mechanic.

I thought Carolinas was the only one with stock problems. I don't even bother looking at Carolinas anymore.

Amainhobbies is disappointing me, too. Take a look at the .21 engines page. The number of red "Back Order" buttons is amazing.

I feel your pain.

It seems to me that many hobby stores are going the route of not keeping as much inventory due to the recent economic slump. Amain is probably where I shop the most and they used to carry a large inventory for almost everything, ever since the economy went down hill it seems as though they just aren't keeping the stock they used to.

the reason 4 amains lack of .21's isnt becuz they have less stock, its becuz every1 is gearing up for the off-road season, alot of motors are purchased during this time, my lhs is selling alot of its stock as well
