I had no problems with Tower... They shipped my order within a few hours and I got it in two days due to customs delays. I think this was because it was my first order so they rushed it.

My only problem with rcmart is that they charge service fees for everything. The price of parts are low but they charge you 5 dollars "bank charge" and then they charge you packaging and everything. I didn't see any 6.99 shipping but that's probably because i'm in Canada.

I have the Rody V12 3 port STD plug. I got it from my LHS for $320, but on the net they will be going for $350+. This was replaced with the ROAR and EFRA version which have no carb restrictor and come with turbo plugs. My friend has a real hard time tuning his ROAR version while mine idles all day long.

That's the link to my engine. When running my friends Roar version seems to sound rev a bit higher. We are pretty much neck and neck. I still havent taken out the restrictor as yet BTW.

Well klander were the only tower supporters. Either nobody likes it or hark's lucky ass can get all his parts at his lhs for about the same price as online . Lucky punk.
