I am not in Oki, but I doubt it. Most of Japan does not carry any US stuff. And when they do, it is usually marked up beyond belief. I would just order from Amain if I were you. Takes about a week to get your stuff.

They may have had proline tires the whole time without you knowing it. Most places in Japan usually re-package them in Mugen packaging. I don't know why, but that is how most of the Proline tires are here.

LOL. More than likely it was. Don't feel bad. It took me a long time before someone told me about it. I kept ordering mine until I figured that out.

i only buy from amain. They have been really good to me. Their rewards point program is awesome. If you ship priority from them you'll get it in 4-5 business days. If they dont' have a part, i go to towerhobbies.com

Amain is the place I use the most. On occasion, I use Carolinasrc, but there stuff is usually out of stock, so it may take a couple of extra days. But there stuff is usually a couple of bucks cheaper. Shipping for APO is pretty much the same wherever you go. If you get the option for First Class, use it. It is cheaper and it will arrive in the same amount of time as Priority. I talked to a couple of guys in the Post Office about that.

thank you for the info. I am going to place an order from Amain today, and hopefully this sunday I will get some fuel as well. Guess I need to go get some batteries and charge my start batteries.

Just placed an order to Amain. Shipping was a bit expensive, but we'll see how long it takes to get here.

Did you use Priority or First Class? Usually only costs around $8-$10 for me. Or less.
