Can't say I saw that one coming. I'm glad the pain is over for Carolines but I did like 'em.

i, know it is cool but i do think if carolina r/c got the bigger warehouse to stock more and have a track i think they whould of stayed open.

but at least the carolina r/c owner will make a profit with amain.

They had a track when they were open, and when they closed I bought their transponder system. I think this is great for both Carolinas to sell their remaining stock, and A Main to further compete with Tower as the #1 online rc store.

netbuggy???

You got that right. I only order things from them if I can not find it anywhere else. I use to order stuff from Carolinas and did not have to worry about getting it on time. With Amain it is a crap shoot. Sometimes I get it for the next race weekend and sometimes I don't. I have gotten into it with them too many times. I was very professional and offered suggestions for the east coast customers and they just blew me off.

The bigger they get, the worse it will be for us. We will have to play and pay by their rules.
