I'm typing this on my LHS. The internet. The local Hobbytown is the only game in town for 100 miles. All the owner gives a shit about is making a buck. He is not a hobbyist,and doesn't really support the hobby at all. The only reason that he's still in business after 4 years is the few flyers that get their supplies there and the role playing card games. He doesn't ever stock any parts we ever need either. Pretty much only stocks Traxxas,Duratrax,Some Associated and very little Losi. Employees there give out TERRIBLE advice on rc. He offered me a job there a year ago for $5.50 an hour,so I guess he's getting what he's paying for. I wouldn't work there anyways,cuz' I can't sell a product that I don't support,for an outragous price at that. Sells fuel for $35 gallon,hence I mix my own fuel,as I have been for 3 years.You probably figured by now,I don't support the place very much

Oh yeah, Our hobbytown doesn't even sell those WE-TODD-DID role playing cards. Those are the only people I looked at as geeks when I worked there. They stocks parts for alot of vehicles. Team losi, Associated, Xray, Corally, CRC, Tamiya, Yokomo, Mugen, Hoboa, Jammin, Axial, Sportwerks, Duratrax, Traxass. I'M SURE THERE IS MORE. And if they don't have it they'll have it in a week or less. The only thing they couldn't get for me was a Falcon Motor from GRP. Also, if it's backordered, then I had to wait a bit longer.

Just a quick survey. What do you expect from your local hobby shop? Good service? Competitive Pricing? Large variety of products? Replacement parts? Mods?

Do you usually check with your LHS first before you purchase something online?
