Default where to purchase for the lowest price?

my hobby shop barely sells cars, he is at a track, so I assume hes conceded that most people will pay for parts, but not new cars, so he has maybe 3 kits in the store. so buying them from my local shop is out.

so I always used towerhobbies.com, they have always been good to me, I bought a kyosho truck once, the engine blew a big one so I returned it. they took back a built kit with an engine that had been run. but now Im low on cash, I want to buy a 1/8th scale car.

these 2 things dont mesh well. so where can I go to get the cheapest price on a mugen MBX-4XR? tower has it at 540, I think I can do better... any locations to try?

I think www.nationalrc.com has the Mugen for around $500. They are good to deal with. If you look around you can probably find it for less but not a lot less.

If you can find it for a good price in RCCAR Action, you can have Tower price match it. They've done it for me more than once in the past.
