At the top off the thread it gets "stuck" there by the moderators so that it will always stay at the top of the page and not be bumped down by other threads, like the "The break in bible" is always at the top, and there is a thumbtack next to the thread

You seem to have a connection to carolinas as it is local to you and maybe through your speed shop you work with them in some way.

Typical save a buck mentality. I happen to work for a lhs part time.
What I said about lhs closing at an alarming rate is true. The distributors are worried because of all the shops closing and shutting down accounts.
It has been said many times that racing makes up a tiny portion of the hobby.
How many people would even get in to the hobby if they could not go into a store and actually look and ask ?s. That is where the newbs get started most of the time.
Thankfully, the owner of our shop understands that diversity in products for all the different hobby genres is what makes his shop successful.
I really dont think this thread will close any shops unless the shop was headed that way in the first place,. Racing makes up a big part of our local hobby shop, the weekends he has races he sells more fuel tires and parts so racing is a big part if the hobby shop has its own track. All of our newbs get advice from the drivers at our track. Our local Hobbytown is worthless they could careless if they answer your questions or not. Then add the $40 an hour mechanic fee to the newb. That adds up quick welcome to the hobby newb here is your bill

Yup... when I got my first Savage I busted the front driveshaft and well since I was new at nitro and was afraid of taking stuff apart, they charged me about 50 buck for labor fixing it and told me I need to buy this and that and every thing else in the damn store and the trip cost me close to a 100 bucks just so I had 4wd and not just 2wd. Now we are done to 2 LHS and neither one is worth 2 cents..... HobbytownUSA staff don't know anything and the little guy in town never has any stock. So pretty much Im stuck ordering my stuff and paying the LHS to order it or I can shop online and find the best deal and since I am not in this hobby as a job just to bash and have fun stuff is more money so it is nice to find codes to help save some cash.

Here is a code for Proline.com it is posted on youtube by Squirrelod for everyone to use (proline has this guy do videos for them) By the way look at his videos they are very cool and has about 400 R/C vids and lots of cool tricks for newbs to pros.

Code: SQRL10

Cudos to alan for starting this and keeping it going, and i will apologize now if i offend but idc, but i have been purchasing from said place online numerous time with orders all above $200 and i don't recieve any rewards in that of discount codes, alan has always always been the one to tell me that i can save here or there or if i order from said places i can save this amount with a code so to all the nay sayers or people that say the lhs are suffering i am sorry but i like to look out for my wallet from time to time and i am always out to find a good deal. That said my lhs is a good one and i spend money there and race there but i cant see paying a larger amount for the same thing than if i went online and found it, even after shipping it is cheaper. I may not have the street cred to talk much but I have been around Alan enough to know that he is not out to try and lure anyone away from lhs hell he used to work at one, he is just out to help his fellow racer have the best expirience that one can have in this hobby. So Alan thank you for everything that you do keep up the great work, and that goes to everyone in every r/c racing town that just likes to help out and be nice to anyone, thank you.
