Default Winnie's Shop

Go check out the prices at winnie's shop with that of others.

Then you will know who's cheaper. Pls do consider the fact that you are going there for the first time and no discount given.

Maybe you can try but checking out the price of their Tamiya spray, or maybe the price of M8 or even Sorex tires???

By the way, where else can you get relatively good tires below $10 for one pair. These tires are not clearance stock.

Well this is just my opinion. Go and check it out yourself.

Dun compare price like this leh, here cheaper, there more ex......
It's not the names, but service that counts. Hobby Bug provides the service of the TRACK !!! You go there play siok siok, but "automatic" mah, pay a little bit more also ker gian.

If you qoute their prices here in the net like this without "seeing" the whole PICTURE, you are misleading others to think that HB is a shark shop - not true. Tell me, what does WINNIE do for you other that giving you a lowest price in the whole world?

Got techinical support?
Got track experience?
Got give you mental support at the track?
Got teach you how to use your charger?
Ever kenna "SWAN" when you long long never buy things from here?
Got help you to tune engine?
Got guide you on what you need to "go faster"?
Got hands-on experience?

Ask yourself these question and you'll know why other who sells slightly more survive in the HOBBY INDUSTRIAL.

sorry, i sometime very loso - not "losi"

Why some of u say winnie kotok??
I was never kotok before leh....
Before i got to know winnie's shop, i was kotok left right up down by other shops.
Must build a good relationship with winnie and u know.
BTW, she told me she bought the shop over, so no need to pay the monthly rental, that's why she can lower the price of her stuff.
Although her discount sometimes inconsistent, it's still the cheapest i can find.

Helo Frantic, can I ask what is your definition of "Best Hobby Shop" ? Best all round knowledge with good price or No apparent knowledge with lowest price(hit and run price-no future support)?

Just look and ask about the customer who always buys at the lowest price and you will know why. They buy and buy because they always FEELs another car is better because it's the LATEST design or product. So after buying and buying and buying, changing and changing cars ....... they are broke and have to buy at $20 cheaper than normal retail price.

How about their race performance of most Winnie's customers? Always Hoping Up, but not in the Race Bilboard. I'm not dis-crediting SWAN, but it's just that you say LOWEST PRICE is the BEST bugs me. Com'on Hobby shop is not a FLEA MARKET where you shop for bargains like in BoatQuey or Sugnei Road, it's a knowledge base stuff.

Joke of the YEAR
What is the difference between this 2 motor windings? "dun know, I just sells them and I make $10 out of it anyway .........."
