Default Major major score on Amain!!!!!!!

Just ordered a bunch of stuff from amain, talk about a major score!! They have a sale of some sort going on right now, tons and tons of specials, I scored about $200 worth of stuff for $64 shipped.

This is what I got and what I paid

1 x MUGE0311 Mugen Alum Ackerman Plate 5 mm $6.99
1 x FIO-OT-UR27/BK Fioroni MBX5 Ergal Front Lower Arm Holder (-1/-2/-3 Degree) (3 pcs) Black Color $12.25
1 x KHZ-KP-593-BLK King Headz Mugen MBX5 Rear Arm Mount (3) (Black) $3.79
1 x RMVTU8715 Reckward Tuning Front Active Caster Shock Tower (Mugen MBX5T) $12.75
1 x RMVTU8716 Reckward Tuning Rear Shock Tower (Mugen MBX5T) $12.75
1 x RCE10425 Racers Edge 15T 1/8 Super Clutch Bell $5.09

Total is $53.62



And this is what it would have paid normally

1 x MUGE0311 Mugen Alum Ackerman Plate 5 mm $31.99 (I think? cant find it on their site anymore)
1 x FIO-OT-UR27/BK Fioroni MBX5 Ergal Front Lower Arm Holder (-1/-2/-3 Degree) (3 pcs) Black Color $61.99
1 x KHZ-KP-593-BLK King Headz Mugen MBX5 Rear Arm Mount (3) (Black) $16.99
1 x RMVTU8715 Reckward Tuning Front Active Caster Shock Tower (Mugen MBX5T) $58.99
1 x RMVTU8716 Reckward Tuning Rear Shock Tower (Mugen MBX5T) $58.99
1 x RCE10425 Racers Edge 15T 1/8 Super Clutch Bell $5.09
Total is $234.04



Overall I think I got a damn good deal, if I found all the right prices, then that's $234.04 worth of stuff, that I got for $64 shipped. So be sure to get on Amain and check out what they have! Tons of great deals on there right now!

There is so much other stuff on there that I want to buy just to resell for full price... But I may end up doing that with those shock towers, depends if they are lighter than the prospec ones.

I was looking for some wraps on the upgrade site and thought well I should check A main before I buy... I found the stuff I was looking for in the clearance pages of A main for real cheap.. Like $2-5 cheap instead of $30. Pays to snoop around.... Heck right now they have a whole bunch of fioroni stuff on there for GS buggy's for cheeeeeeeeap Practicly giving it away.. Wish they would do that for Kyosho stuff....wait they do but for the 7.5 series... Could build a nice shelf queen.....

Yea their shipping is blazing fast from CA to NY and the site is really very friendly to navigate and realtime stock.


They also seem to cater to the racers alot like the tracks do. Good handle on new products.

MBX6 has been out for almost a year now. That is why he is blowing stuff out for the MBX5.

I wonder if Mugen will still produce the MBX5 stuff for replacement parts? If not, alot of Caster Racing parts will fit.

That's why I buy cheap MBX5T rollers when I find them. Can never have too many spares.

That's called making space. Cleaning out all of the old stock that no one really needs anymore. I wouldn't be too excited about re-selling it for a profit though. There is a reason why the stuff is being sold cheap. No body really buys MBX5 stuff much anymore. I say lucky you for getting a good deal on some stuff you needed.
