Default Tamiya shocks

Hey guys, i know this might not belong here but the product i'm asking about is a onroad part so Mods you can move it if you see fit. I'm looking at getting a set of the new Tamiya TRF works shocks. Iv researched them and found them on RcMart.com for $65. I thought that was too cheap so i looked for them else where. The same shocks are listed on Tower Hobbies for 112. How can there be such a big difference in price, also Tower says delivery for late January, while RcMart has 20+ in stock?

I just want to know if I order from RcMart, am i going to get screwed? Rc Mushroom also seems to have the same shocks in stock and are priced at $78. Any help will be apprecited, Thanks guys

RcMart is a very well known RC shop and provides great service.
As far as i know i haven't had any issues with them yet and i'm ordering from them for about 6 or 7 years (could be longer though).
I guess the reason for differences in price can be taxes and other extra costs for getting the items to the US.

You sure it's the same part number? Tamiya released a M-chassis, and a touring car set of Works shocks. The M-chassis are selling for $65 and the touring car are running about $100.

I just bought a set for my touring car...VERY nice shocks. The TC shocks are part #84317.

Cheers

Yea i know that there were two different part numbers. On rcmart both are the same price. Its good to hear from someone first hand that the shocks are nice.
