Default Any hobby stores willing to negotiate on an order of ~$1300

Title says it all.

I have seen CarolinasRC do a $75 off coupon for orders over $800 in the past.

probably not much "negotiating". $1300 seems like alot but you are talking a car, radio, engine and that's it in most cases. None of those 3 have a ton of mark up.

If you were talking about a $1300 tire order or just parts, you might get somewhere with a few. Be best to call them direct, most of the larger stores who have bargaining power don't read a whole lot of these message boards.

This isnt the flea market or an automobile dealership I didnt know negotiating was an acceptable practice. From what I have seen carolinasrc.com has about the best pricing around. Heres a link. There are coupons on the front page.

This is what I am looking for. I have already used the AMAIN codes and they wouldn't allow me $25 more off.

Glad I inquiried here because that $100 is looking nice.

I have never found anything that didn't qualify for a discount. Not sure what items don't qualify.

I have always got a better deal from a independent hobby shop versus buying online.........Although sometimes the little guy doesn`t carry all the products or can`t get them then I will turn to the over priced online shops

try rc-toro.com. They used to have a "toro40off" for any order over $400. I suppose you make three seperate orders. You can maxmize your saving to $120.
