Questions?? Traxxas RC Hobby Store?

Anyone here dealt with Traxxas RC Hobby Store?
Prices are unreal but only do Western Union or Wire Transfer and only send goods by Best Way. They have paypal/visa etc. pic down the bottom of the screen but is dull.

What about the paypal , mastercard, and visa signs at the bottom of the page?
I added an item to the cart but didn't want to register to get to the checkout.....
And $154 for a Wraith kit ?
Something smells funny

The footer has a typo too. Copyright 2013 www.traxxasrchobby.com. Powered by taxxas rc hobby

Also, checking the whois lookup, I can't say I would personally trust it.

Looking at some of the items they have in stock and quantity on hand can't be correct. I also got the $2.50 shipping option for international.

This site has been around for years because I went to it one time when I was shopping for rc cars about 4 years ago and didnt order from them because its so obvious that its not a real site its funny.
