Isn't that MAP (minimum)? I'm saying this not knowing what MAP is for that particular vehicle though...So perhaps they were listing it above MAP?

Tower is cheaper, they have real coupons, shipping is much faster, and their customer service is unmatched. Stormer is awesome too. They have good shipping times and good customer service. In the past they weren't that competitive with pricing, but now that they post coupons on their site they have good pricing. RPP is also great, but they have more crawling and bashing stuff with not much racing gear.
I agree I like tower hobbies shipping is much faster than amain wish tower hobbies they carried Orion stuff, kyosho parts, protek, X-ray product.

Something has changed at amain w/ the shipping it seems. During the summer it would take forever for the item to ship and then take forever to get to nj. Recently they have been shipping same day(I've been ordering in the morning tho), and the priority mail option is like 5-6 bucks now. I ordered something on friday before new years and got it on tuesday. I just got a xb4 so I've been ordering from amain and will use absolute for small orders.

They could have better coupons, however they are still a A+ company.

Depends where the company is based and where you are. It is reverse for me, but Tower is about an hour and a half drive from me (except when they decide to ship from Reno)... still wish at times they would have customer pickup... That being said, I buy from both. Haven't tried yet, but A-Main says they will match Tower prices/coupons...

yeah Amain is doing price matching on a lot of tower hobbies coupon specials. Some things they don't but in general those items are discounted significantly based on the ones I was curious on.
