Because you're not buying them from overseas.

I like my Tamiya's, but I buy from the Rdvtg-Hobbies or Vellrip on Ebay, close to half the price, I can wait a week for my parts.

Hey oka, the best thing you should do is pick up something like the Sidewinder ESC. In fact, you can get a sidewinder with brushless motor for just $100 from:
http://www.hobbypeople.net/gallery/701486.asp

I'd go with that. The brushless motor is just better, and it's programmable with a special cable (another $25, worth it if you're into tuning the power of the motor).

And if you feel like it, this should also run brushed, too!
