Unless you are going to have a guy back there explaining how to put new a-arms on these cars then I would not promote hobby grade cars through stores like best buy. Instead hobby shops need to make it their goal to make the largest local class the most afordable class as well. Also, it helps if you can sit your lhs next to a grocery store or something so that you can advertise by turning circle w/ a li//bl truck in the parking lot. When people show up to race & there is a 30 man field of cars that range in setup value from $250 to $600 & the fast guy is using a setup he picked up for $400 you will be able to draw new people into the hobby. The one car I really think can be the next t-max is the firestorm line because it is very track capable out of the box & it is dirt cheap. Hobby shops are going to make most of their money w/ spare parts, tires, oils, bearings, bodies, & ect. The faster cars go then the faster they go through parts & tires.
