Yeah they sell you Associated hardware for your Losi car because there's a better mark up on a $2.00 pack of screws! WOW someone actually said that?

Default Parts in the Shop

Probably be frowned upon by other drivers for saying this, but.... A business has to make money. As much as I would like to think so, they are not just there to have a place for us to race.

As drivers, we should know what parts we need, and what the price comparison is to other places to help us determine if we trulty want to purchase the part. Alot of I think is convenience too. I know I am spoiled by SRS having parts for me to buy right on site in the event I need one before the next round of racing.

Everytime I race at the Pit, I have to plan ahead of what parts I "May" need, and bring them with me so i don't have to drive 35 minutes round trip to One Hobbies.

Same with Canyon vista this past weekend. I brought all the parts extra that I though I would need as they didn't sell parts on site.

I have purchased 2 servos from SRS, and both of the parts were sold to me at a very good price.

I think I'd rather not know what your $1 bills smell like. I'm sure some have a mystery smell
