There are many quality sites!! Some sites carry more of one brand than others, it somewhat depends on what you are looking for. I purchase alot of stuff right here on RCTech and Amain, Infernos Only, Carolinas Rc, and many more. Some of the other guys will put more sites for you to go to.

+1 for AMAIN. Ask around, they may still have a discount code active. I also use Nitrohouse and Towerhobbies. Nitrohouse has very fair pricing, but don't think they offer discount codes. Tower just released a code for $20 off a $50 dollar purchase, but it has to be used in conjunction with my email address that it was sent to. Go figure!

I use www.amainhobbies.com and www.carolinasrc.com but they seem to be a bit spotty on stock lately. I have found that www.stormerhobbies.com keeps good stock, has a HUGE selection and the prices are consistently lower than both other places without having to mess around with coupons and such. Check em out.

I use to use tilted almost exclusively but Homer never seems to stock anything anymore! Great Homer and Lisa are great to deal with.

Lots of good choices there, I don't need to add any... I've used Amain and Carolinas, and heard good things about ALL of the ones mentioned above.

And don't overlook your local hobby shop either, if you have one. Mike's Hobbies in Carrolton for example usually is the same or cheaper than the online stores... yes, he DOES have a website, but their primary business is a local shop. www.mikeshobbyshop.com

+1 on the LHS. Do you have any?
You don't want to rely only on the web if you have a LHS.
If you need a part fast it is nice if your LHS stocks parts.
I am lucky to have a wonderful shop to buy from.
If no LHS then don't worry about it.

tc5, I left ya a post on your other thread. Shoot me a email @ alanburton20@gmail.com

I have some coupon/discount codes for www.carolinasrc.com, usually they have much better discounts than most. Inventory has been down due to the hard times but they special order 3x per week. Depending on what you want I will check into how soon they can get it to your door. Usually within 2-5 days.

Talk to ya soon!

Here are some savings for you guys! Need a Ninja JX? Use the $30 code to knock off $30. Thinking about getting that new mbx-6t and putting the new engine and servos in? Use that $75 dollar code to get the cheapest prices online!

Save Up to $150 in May!
To save up to $150 on your next order, enter the following discount code into your shopping cart before checking out.

Order Amount:You Saveiscount Code:
$75.00 - 174.99 $5.00RCMAY95
$175.00 - 299.99 $15.00RCMAY915
$300.00 - 849.99 $30.00RCMAY930
$850.00 +$75.00 RCMAY975

These discounts are good through May 31, 2009, and may not be applied to orders that have already been submitted. The codes may be used for online orders, phone orders, and in-store orders.
