Amain is always good for in stock they have a huge inv. But I live in ca so I have to pay sales tax and that sucks. Amain also only let's you use your coupn 1x. That makes no sense to me. With the $25 coupon idk of you are going to beat that. The vspec has been discontinued so 269 is the last hoora price. It should be 329-349. I would prob get it there free shipping and everything.

I usually buy from absolutehobbyz.com since they are in NJ it only takes a day or two to ship to me(NY), otherwise amain.

I say best thing you can do is try to find a hobby shop that is relatively close to where you live, gets annoying waiting for items to ship from CA to NY.

bluegrass hobbies best prices , and the shipping is cheap the only downside is they dont carry a whole lot, of stock but they have want you really need.

i dont shop at amain hobbies, much anymore there shipping is too much if you ask me espially for tires and rims .


gs hobby isnt too bad the shipping, is pretty good too and they have good stock.

stormer has some pretty good, prices compared to other stores and carry a lot of stock and there shipping is just right.
