Unfortunately USPS Priority mail is only estimated, they do not guarantee any of there shipments. sadly we are at the mercy of the shipping companies to deliver on time as scheduled.
the only guaranteed shipping methods out there are UPS 2 day air and UPS next day air. depending on what you ordered the cost for shipping can be more than the item.
We deal with the shipping company's daily to try to make sure all packages arrive as estimated, but most of the time the delays are out of our control. if there was way to get it there faster and cheaper we would be all over that, we discount most of our shipping methods as much as possible to pass on to you the customer and will continue to discount it as much possible.

if only star trek transporters really existed, just beam your package to you.

by no means amain's fault how usps does business. i did have to file a lost package claim cuz the package never left cali. amain's customer service helped out with the matter and everything worked out.

I apologize your package did not arrive as estimated, I am guessing your order was shipped with USPS? if so they have been having many delays and getting packages delivered late, I completely understand your frustration on this and wish there was a way to deal with the shipping companies. we do not own or run any of the shipping companies and know how hard it is to deal with them as this is something i deal with 5 days a week. we ship all orders out on schedule and usually the same day and then rely on usps or ups to get the package to you as quoted, however usps does not guarantee the delivery dates on any of there shipping methods anymore. only UPS 2 day air or or UPS next day air are guaranteed.
I am sorry you had a bad experience with this, if there is something we can do to make up for this, please give us a call and just ask for James.

Default Amain is great.

I like AMain. They seem to ship fast enough for me and great customer service. Had a defective tool and they are sending a replacement at no extra cost. Thank you.

I love AMAIN because they offer international shipping at affordable rates. I live in Mexico so thanks to them I can enjoy this hobby, otherwise, it was impossible to have access to some brands like Tekno or Associated.
The LHS at my city only sells toy grade and give supports only to traxxas (I dont like traxxas)
I have to wait around 30 days to receive my orders but thatīs not Amainīs fault, they Always ship the next day
I'm a gold member so usually, my rewards and monthly discounts help to pay the shipping cost
the only con is that the discounts are not as good as other online retailers like tower hobbies who offer good discounts to super saver club members so I have bought some cars there.

I totally recommend Amain for international customers, In fact, I'm selecting right now some upgrade parts for my new kit build
