Go fast brushless stuff. For larger things. You and I have talked a little about the Mamba Monster Max, that's the kind of thing I'm thinking about. Stuff capable of pushing 1/8 scale MT stuff.

How about a phone number to talk directly to you, when needed. Although you do a great job of answering here, it would be nice to be able to speak directly to someone.

I'd like to see a vendor here carry the transceivers for Nomadio's. Soldering iron/station would be nice too, may save me from getting a Weller station from Grainger.

I tried that, and there are 3 problems

1. I don't want to give out my cellphone number
2. I am not around my landline enough
3. I got so many phone calls that I couldn't get stuff done


I would love to be able to talk directly to my customers but unfortunately it doesn't work well.

The Biggest and best customer service you could provide is :

Product testing and feedback

Just like you did with the Castle BEC PERFECTO

Do things like look up the hottest tire that is sweeping the podiums and sell it at a great price
or
product test the new stuff provide the feedback and then gives us the thumbs up to a prooven product to buy

Your business should reflect who you are, a happy expeirence with great results !

Focus on Comp worthy products: Axles, trannies, servos, tires, rims, upgrade parts, etc.
Radios tend to be expensive and there are many deals on them like ebay.

For the low dollar stuff, stock the cheap hard to find parts

I think the sport is growing to fast the most manufactures are just producing without much testing. And it Sucks to get something that breaks or just Does not Perform.

I agree, you already carry brushless speed controllers, now you just need a fast motor. Stuff to push things like a BL revo or E-maxx, not just another 1/10 buggy setup. Find something with major balls.

My aim SN is in my profile, good luck catching me on there. I spend an average of 2 hrs a day responding to email and PM already, so catching me via PM or in a thread is the best bet. I have an ask question thread in my forum too.

Hey JRH, I was looking around you're site and couldn't find replacement brushes and springs, maybe that could be something to sell, I know there are several different types and cuts and spring rates but a few common ones would be good

I know I'm kinda late but I think a "certified pre owned" electronics section would be nice if you bought used stuff and rebuilt and tested and sold at a good price

I'd like to see a motor leads option drop down added for all the new brushed motors. Keeps me from having to call, get a paypal invoice sent, log into PayPal separately to pay, yada yada yada. It'd just be easier to add leads from a drop down then add to cart and checkout.

Secondly, did I hear you say you were working on a new ESC similar to the MMX with a programmable aux wire? If not consider this my nomination.
