Are the ones you are selling different from Speedtech's?

GT if you are refferring to the polished screws on Pete's car they are from the 414 cars. Pete being a now former high school punk and not having anything better to do he polished them up and made them look all pretty. Next he is looking to get pink parts for his car.

Evoracer, that's great if Steve can pull off that price. But my source said his selling below cost or making very little profit. I have no problems with that, it's his business, good for us, bad for R/C industry in general, because everyone has to bring there prices down to be competetive. Like I said to RtypeC I might get from Steve too. But right now I just can't sell at a price he is telling everyone. I already spoke to my source and all he said was just to bring it back to him.

I don't believe it is bad for the R/C industry. Low prices means more people can afford it, thus, more growth. It looks like a win, win situation for everyone. Just my 2 cents.

i think wat he is saying is if you can't make money off selling something then you probibly wont sell it any more.
in an extreme , closing your RC shop cause you not making enough money to pay the rent, if your local hobby store shuts down its no good for no one!

Kenshin: I think your logic can't be apply on this RC industry. Low price doesn't really mean more people come to this rc racing. No matter how the low price for rc racing item, it is consider expensive hobby for everybody. I never heard one said RC racing is cheap.
Serious buyers for Surikarn are going to get it anyway. Just matter of time. Of course, now they see Steve is selling this for unbeatable low $370. Everyone would wait for his shipment. I don't see any point a new buyer would buy a Surikarn for $370. I doubt how many people would now thinking getting Surikarn because it is now $370. For sure some people may tell you, "yeah, it is now only $370. I must get it". According by my experience, they usually have no real action.

Paying $370 from your local shop makes much better sense than spending $420+ from ebay.

Dont spend time worrying about what the margins are for a business. As long as price, service and product are not sacrificed get the best deal you can.

My 2 bits.

Well, smash123, I disagree. Not everybody in this hobby is into rc racing and the RC industry does not depend on rc racing alone. A lot are backyard bashers, weekend flyers, and leisure boaters. But for the people who are serious, will try to find the lowest price around. And oh yes, smart buyers will and do wait to get something for a cheaper price. I for one, was thinking of getting a Surikarn but when I saw the prices on eBay for $429 or even $475, I decided to wait and see for it was too rich for my blood. But as soon as I saw Speedtech got it on pre-order for $370, I am on the list baby! And I am sure I am not the only one.
