A Main has been selling at those prices for as long as I can remember.

Am I missing something or is this Blow-Out Sale at Ace a gimmick?
I placed a substantial order yesterday.JR sent me e-mail listing everything i ordered with the before and after price.I called today to confirm the order and add a few more items.All i can say is if this is a gimmick i hope he continues it for a long time.The $avings were huge.
Here's wishing the ACE Boys all the luck in world in their new ventures.

This is no gimmick. Ace will be gone in about two weeks. JR has meant a great deal to the RAMS. Thanks for all the support JR. You WILL be missed

It is true, they are going out of business. JR is selling the place and moving (he bought a house out of state). They were always helpful to me over the years, and they will be missed.

For all you h8ters, I live right across the bay from them. The first time I heard they were folding I took the day off and drove over there and picked up a crapload of stuff. Between that and Sheldon's 60% off 'moving sale' (read going out of business' as well), I must have at least a dozen bags of RC parts crowding the floor of my workroom.

I placed an order at Ace about a month ago, and still haven't received it. The last e-mails I sent them were not answered, and I cannot reach them by phone. Does anyone know how I can contact them?

Kevin is no longer at Ace. The walls are getting pretty bare. I would just keep calling

Even then having true stock available would be hard. As well the website went down , it probably wouldnt have been able to handle all the requests.

I want to thank JR for what he did for me last week with getting me a mtx-4 kit. Greatly appreciated , its amazing at the end of 25 years. He still puts forth 100% effort all the while selling off inventory at a high rate. Its inspiring to see that kind of dedication and im sure your future ventures whatever they may be will be equally successful , hope you have a wonderful retirement.

Yeah, I stopped by the other week and even though the store seems completely wiped out, JR was still very busy on the phone filling in orders and answering questions.

He'll take care of you, he's just totally swamped with orders.
