Dude, I wish it was a joke...here is a copy of the e-mail I received..

Hello,

After twenty five years in the radio control industry, we have decided
to retire from the industry. We have developed many friendships
throughout the many years, and something I can not even express how much that
will be missed. We have enjoyed helping you with you hobby and wish you
the best for the future.

Our Appreciation To You:
We have decided in appreciation of the many years of continued business
that our customers have given to us, we would like to do something back
to you. Through January 25th, 2007 we are going to be selling all
inventory at a discount of 40 -50% off manufactures retail pricing. If we
are out, and you would like we will order the product and still honor the
discounting. Please take advantage of this savings.

Online Orders:
If you would still like to order online, please do. The online site
will show original pricing, but we will modify the invoice to reflect the
discounts and email you back with the correct amount. The invoice
emailed back to you will definitely we less.

Phone Orders:
Call us at 1-800-383-2657 (west coast time 10-5 M-F)

Thank You
JR

I want to take this time to thank JR and Kevin from Ace Hobbies for all they have meant to the hobby over the last 25 years. Most of us have done business with Ace and it was always been obvious that they knew what they were talking about and that they cared about the hobby. I wish JR and Kevin the best of luck on what ever they decide to do and I hope to run in to them at a race in the future. The beer will be on me (after the race of course)

I would like to second that vote of thanks.
Ace Hardware have supplied me with a lot of goods, and they are always more than willing to modify an order. They will be soley missed. I have been in the RC hobby for more years than I would can to admit, both as a user and also manufacturer of RC goods. The industry needs more suppliers like this.
JR I wish you all the best for the future,
Nick Marson
