oh boy heres goes the LHS vs overseas debate again...

fact is the USA online hobby shops benifts greatly from EXPORTING overseas. a large proportion of thier sales are to OS customers. Just ask tower, amain, losiparts etc...

the amount being exported to OS customers is way greater than whats being imported by USA customers.

I found retailers here in the US that can get almost anything you can get from these over-sea's retailers and usually they cost you about the same.

I would rather support my hobby here in the US while we still have one.
And people are aw struck wondering why their local track/hobby shop is closing down. Its because they can not compete with those shops that cut huge discounts on items, but you pay three times what it really costs to ship it.
I was a mail man and I can say this with some accuracy, YOU ARE GETTING YOUR WALLET SUCKED DRY FROM THESE OVERSEAS RETAILERS ON SHIPPING.

what they charge you for regular shipping is what express/3day shipping really costs.

So you choose how you want to spend your money, but like I said I would rather pay the extra $4.00 and know I am keeping my hobby going strong in my own country.

Off the soap box I come.

Well me and my friend ShaunMac that has posted earlier we dont have a LHS well we do but its all offroad and they dont care to improve. just cause we order from overseas doesnt mean we dont support or tracks.

I can't say i'd bother ordering from overseas if I lived in America as your prices look fairly cheap anyway but the prices here in England are atrocious. Even with the huge shipping fees you're still looking at half price if you put a fairly decent sized order in. Who's that rich that they can ignore those sorts of discounts?

Hi there,
about shipping cost :
we is used HK Post Office ,
don't like other co. use other country lower price post office !

& some customer had order we no stock items ,
but we don't had any charge in the second , third shipping cost !
i'm checked in US many co. had second charge shipping cost.

About before body shell had some broke ,
is HK or Your local post office problem ?,
our co. had contact HK Post office try to claim your lose,
but not had mark is from HK ,
so HK Post said need contact your local post office to claim your lose !

In the world all shipping co. same had these case ,
you & me don't want had these case in my self !?
if these case happen we same had lose your next order !

My Question :
You would like order Cheaper product with STD HK Post shipping
or Higher price product with Cheaper shipping ?

Thankyou !

Incorrect. In fact, all the HK rc online shops use Hong Kong post for their air mail and express mail. I'm 100% sure on this.
