you have the wrong number`s...

kits sell for less, 30% to 25%

motor`s and battery`s are not much different either....

parts are as high as 35% to 40%


When I buy my radio`s , battery`s even motor`s I buy them from my local racing facility in order to support the fun I enjoy ....

Its not like the track is making out big time on a $10 entry fee , it only help`s pay some of the overhead ....

Sorry for this post..
but


I like my local race track owner`s a lot..

and

I try to show it with my support !
