Just because they are stressed out means they can dick people around? GET REAL. If they are that busy and stressed out, they should be employ more employees, not 2nd class everybody else.

they should let their customers know that "we are moving to a new location, we are going to be very busy and your order will be delayed"

There you go! Don't forget about the "employee" discount and the fact that you'd get the first shot at any of the new stuff that came into the shop. You could also turn them on to all of the r/c goodness out there too.

Moms was thinking about getting a part time job for some extra bank. She was thinking about Walgreens or McD's, but I told her she needs to get hooked up with a LHS. Now, if I can only figure out a way to be able to get her down to The OC (she doesn't do well on freeways). Maybe Steve over at Speedtech could use a part-timer for two to three days a week. She could probably help him with organizing the Region 12 ROAR stuff too. Yeah, she's just that good!

That is one of the caveats of doing mail/online ordering. Us local guys know about the love/hate relationship with Ultimate Hobbies. I remember seeing that kit (Tamiya 415ms) listed on the website and thought to myself, "but I didn't see it in their shop". That's why I didn't think about ordering it from them. Of course, "minidriver" would not have had the same advantage as me, living in Wauwatosa, WI. Other than, "We're sorry", I can't see them doing much else for this guy. Tamiya USA is out of stock on this kit, and I'm told that it is now out of production.

I was thinking about getting an MS, but now I'll just try to convert my "stock" 415 over to the Lightweight and Pro Mod Suspension. The TRF415x (what some were calling the 416) seemed to do very well at The Reedy last month. Perhaps Tamiya with consided putting this car into production soon, for a winter `04 release date. Otherwise, that'll leave a big gap in their pro touring car line (seems more people prefer belt drive over shaft).

Ultimate is a great store to visit. If you know what you are looking for, great. If you have a lot of questions then you'll need a lot of patience. Simply put, they are a really BIG Mom & Pop store run the Mom & Pop way. So don't expect state of the art service or order processing

Steve Wang has been a state of the art online store since day ONE!! His online store is full of information and very user friendly. However, he does have stock problems and his prices are a little high.

Bottom line, if you want to get the best price and availability, call Ultimate. Make sure you have a lot of patience and are able to redial several times before getting an answer. (even their phone lines are not set-up to handle volume, still Mom & Pop) Or send an e-mail and make sure someone e-mails you back to either discuss your order or confirm your order.

For me, I'd rather go there pay the cash and walk out happy. I have an easier time buying items off E-bay than to worry about getting through to Ultimate either by phone or online.
