Amain has always been great and I would also advise against GSHobby, nothing but issues with them.

Stormer is great, but I hate their website. It needs to total overhaul, would probably increase their business if they did.

Are you advertising for them?

I take that back, their not as good as I thought, I am just going to stick with the LHS. I might as well support them if you think about it it just about cost the same with the shipping fees and you get better customer service.

I would agree 100% with you.. I almost ordered something from them once, but didn't for other reasons then their website. but every time I go back there I look for the 1 thing I went there to check on, and never window shop while I am there..

Exactly, it's impossible to browse around and find oddball things at Stormer. I have ordered from them several times, I shopped with them a lot back in the late 90s to early 2000s before A main was around. I hated their site back then too, but it wasn't as bad because that was the norm 15 years ago.

The main reason for A Mains success is how well their Website is laid out. It's very easy to navigate and find what you want. I get on their website almost daily to browse and I've spent a ton of money on things that I've just stumbled upon.

Truth. I am on amain everyday. I place an order almost every week.

Great site, great customer service. No long hold times. Just assume. I was a huge Tower fan well I still am a Tower fan but amain kind of stole me away because the website is laid out much better IMHO.

In addition to the stores mentioned I also buy from RCBoyz.com - they have good prices and they don't screw you on shipping. But their selection is more limited than the big guys.

I buy as much as I can from my local hobbyshop to help support the track. Anything online comes from absolute hobbyz, Amainhobbies, or tower.

amain is great because like everyone said their site is very easy to find what you need.

stormer is ok if you know what you want and have that part number. So stormer is my back up online store.
