RCmart has been good to deal with.
Check ebay as shipping is sometimes cheaper. Especially if ordering 1 or 2 times and if the items are available there.
RCmart is dinball on ebay

Express shipping 5 days, regular air mail 2 weeks.

It's a little better shipping to the West Coast....it's never taken more than 8 days for me to get items from the website. comparible price wise in my view but I don't shop for much other than micro stuff.

The only negative thing to say about RCMart is the Unexpected Paypal charges that you get on checkout. Basically RCMart charges you in the checkout stage for Banking Fees. The amount is not very much, but no other company I have dealt with does that.

I still buy from them and other than the small fees they are great. Ususally get items in 2 weeks(Blame customs - sometimes 1 week in vancouver).

I have no complaints about RcMart/ Dinball either. I purchased through Ebay several times and recieved my stuff within 10 days each time.

My experience with RCMart has all been good with most items arring within 10 days to two weeks from placing the order. I've never had to pay any duty but have always needed to sign for the package on delivery.

Go Away...

If the store close to me had the parts I need I get them there. BUT most of the cars I run I can only get the parts from China. Plus when some of the prices are half of what the local store charges why would you not buy from them.

I have never had a problem with Rcmart 15+ orders and no extra "surprise" fees at the boarder.

But I must say my local shop is gettng much better. I still prefer to buy electronics from them as it is easy to walk it in for warrenty.

So this is a paragraph full of contradictions and lies.....

LOSI Ten SCTE
Wow, only China sells parts for these unknown cars that you own...

2.So in 2a you say that you would support your LHS if they had the parts you need and then in 2b you say why would you not buy online when the prices are half. hmmm....

Wow....... seriously just wow..... you can wait weeks for parts, but a warranty, that needs to be done now


Support your local community, you can do that by supporting local shops in said community, whether it is RC or something else, family run business' are an important part of our society. I know economics is tough to understand, but you should really look into it and understand how it can and will affect your and your families lives.

Support your local Hobby Shops. Support business in your own community it benefits everyone in your community maybe even you.
I have to second that.
