Hobbies in the Hills. There is a Losi 22 RTR there, and they try to keep all the FT Associated in stock (as well as RTR)

Its technically Stock Class, aka Spec Class. Pro2 is a controlled motor and esc class.
There is a SCT Mod or Pro2 Mod class, which is 2wd SCT open motor/esc, but we don't run that much. Once a year.. if that.
On the odd ocassion that we get a SCT Mod driver, we get them to run with the Pro4 guys.

That good because people say the tekin is the best for stock racing. But I would be happy with it anyway, even if I was as racing mod.

Used to be when Stock allowed dynamic timing.. but these days, stock is all about motors and batteries.
Escs play a lesser roll in the current stock rules.

I found this ad perplexing; why would you pay this random guy on RCTech 80 bucks for something you can get from Ebay for 50 and have some confidence in the seller? And yet people seem to be buying them.

I happen to know Jaylow215 quite well and he is not just some random guy.
He has a great trader rating and has many years experience in motor sport retail.
He is well known and respected in the Victorian R/C community and is a stand up guy,$80 is not expensive considering postage is included and you will have your product within days.
You can deal with him and have 100% confidence .

I don't doubt he is trustworthy, I just don't get why people pay a 33% premium to get something off a forum, if it is the convenience of a few days delivery then fair enough, but RC Tech is not the most secure market place around and there are continually ads on there for products that people can buy online on secure reputable web stores for considerably less. I am in no way saying that the advertiser in question is disreputable or that you shouldn't buy off people on RC Tech, on the contrary I do it regularly, I just don't get why people think it is a better option. Maybe I just shop around more than most. Anway this is the EBay alternative: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Hobbywing...item43b15408dc

It's the same as people buying Turnigy batteries from shops for 200% more than you can buy them delivered from Hobby King; I just don't get it. But it's a free market economy so I suppose you can pay whatever you feel is value for money.

I wanted it for the weekend and that $30 is what it was worth to me.

A couple of us were running 4.5's in 4wd, that is crazy but fun! Aren't you meant to have a 1 in front of both those numbers and average them out?
