Be aware that maybe those bodies are not EFRA legal. If that is no problem then it is a good deal.

No it does not matter, are the Lola EVO 3 2 pack bodies the lw or standard weights? Prices are really good though, do you use them Roelof?

The only problem with them is that they ship the package even if they dont have items in stock.

A REAL webshop, like Towerhobbies, RC-mushroom and others, every time a quantity was not met or an item was not in stock, they sent me an email asking instructions, on whether to cancel the order, wait for the items to be back in stock (they give you a timeframe), or just ship the package with the items in stock and a credit on those items out of stock.

"The Border" does not do that, so if you have an item that costs $2, and they did not have it. You have guessed it, spend another $15 on shipping just for that $2. Been there, done that.
