Unhappy We need batteries, please!!!!

hello everyone,

here is a complicated situation... i am the owner of a local touring car racing club in a very small country Lithuania from central Europe. We have only about 15-20 racers in my club as there are no more people racing touring cars, except toys and we need matched batteries for practicing and for racing in some neighbour countries like Latvia, Estonia, Poland.

The problem is that we are not able financially to become a distributor for some specific matcher brand because simply we don't have market for that , as well as most of us cannot afford buying matched packs for 50-70$+shipping+taxes what becomes for us 70-110$ per loose cell pack (our country's average monthly salary is 450$ so not much people can afford buying rc cars, this is why we don't have many racers)

i wonder if there is any matcher company out here which could give us dealer or whatever good prices for matched batteries?

Of course we will try to sell as many packs as we can to people who use these cells, like rc boat drivers, but definitely we cannot handle dealer programs like 1000 or 2000$ per month.

I would really appreciate if any matcher company could offer some help in this case... not much of a profit for you, but still something...

Tomas

we're trying to do that everyday!!! the biggest problem is that a lot of people would love to do that, but they just don't have money, but we hope that situation will get better as we joined EU last year..

Harris RC is Australian, all prices are in A$, it works out to be about .8 of a US$

byt here that is cheap for batts, everything over here is redicusly expensive, ie TB02 kit is $350, EVO4, X-ray etc $600+ you get the idea
