Default Honest website?

Hey guys whats up. Ive been looking at online hobby sites and have been looking at www.ultamitehobbies.com. They have really really good prices and free shipping on things over 100 dollars. I was wondering if anyone has purchased anything from this site and if they are reptuable and honest. If so i might just purchase my kit off this site sence they are about 150 dollars cheaper on rtr kits then any where elese.

Is there any reason for there super low prices? Its almost too good to be true. I can afford to go nitro if i buy from that site. Also what do you guys think about the nitro stadium truck rtr kits? Is it worth it to buy one of them or should i just build my own electric truck?

The link you posted to ultimate hobbies is nothing like I thought. Its just a bunch of links...seems to be no ultimate hobbies at all.

Im lookin for shops like Stormer or Tower hobbies...

Anyone know what happened to Sheldon hobbies? Hope they didnt go under...

OK...I see what happened. You mis-spelled the web page. I think you meant

www.ultimatehobbies.com

Click on the link in your post and you will see what Im talking about...just a site with allot of crappy links.

I also researched Sheldon hobbies and could only come up with allot of forum entries complaining about their service. Plus their web page is down... so...their history. They used to be pretty good 11 years ago.
Best Mail order hobby shop I have ever dealt with was called Hobby Warehouse. I believe they were in sacramento. They went under years before Sheldons did though. Man...best customer service ever. Bummer...

LHS, Tower and Stormers for me now...

Ultimate Hobbies is a reputable hobby store that orders in large volume and thus they can sell stuff at less of a price because they pay less. Thats all. I do shop there personally and they are good.

I bought my first nitro from this site. After shopping around they had the lowest prices and also free shipping. Only problem is that I dont know the manufacturer for the nitro so that I could get some extra parts for to modify my car. Check it out and see if you can find what you might be looking for.
