A-Main also bought the rights to the CarolinasRC.com domain name. If you try to go to the Carolinas R/C site it re-directs you to A-Main. I'm not sure yet why the domain name was part of the deal.

Get em Gabe:-) I'm sure Kendal is just making a few tweaks. There are too many of us East Coast CRC members that have been ordering from him for years to just dump the site.

Because it was very cheap to do and is free advertising. Both parties might as well let customers who are not on here or neo 24/7 that amain is now the place to go and that carolinas is gone.

I would for sure do what Kendall did in that position. It helps CarolinasRC also so people aren't calling, emailing, posting ,etc..... if it was done correctly.

There is a message posted on the forum page now that the site is being transferred to a new more reliable host but the domain changes are taking a lot longer then expected. The forum should be online later today.

I can order from Amain on Monday night or Tuesday morning and have my order by Thursday. That shipping with the cheapest USPS option to North Carolina. Once I picked UPS because of a federal holiday and I knew UPS would be open to ship, then it took a week and a half a cost me $10 more.
