Default Everyone please read.

This is the VENDORS section, not the for sale section, not EBAY, not your local flea market. The prices vendors post are the prices they are asking for the product, they are not just simply throwing out suggestions.

If you find the product cheaper somewhere else, send them a pm and let them know, I know they are always trying to bring us the best prices, however sometimes being a small guy they just cannot keep up with companies like towerhobbies. I'll bet though that on the same items most of the vendors here are at or below towers prices, and you're supporting a small business, and you'll get way better support.

In short if a vendor has a price listed, that's their price, no bickering. Sometimes however some vendors will post right in their thread that a price on an item isn't firm.

You don't go into Walmart and bicker pricing do you?

prices on here are actually better than large scale online retailers, our vendors dont have any where near the overhead they have.

atleast on some things ive price checked elsewhere.

yeah, sometimes a part is a little bit cheaper from tower but tower hardly has anything we crawler nuts need, so Support Out Venders and if you don't agree with the price shut up!

ive been telling people to support the vendors for a while now even tho i myself just started to do so, but i feel that even if it costs a couple bucks more who cares. if there is a problem with it they will take care of it however they can. you dont get that from all the big companies

I cant believe I just read this.... It is by far the BEST post I have seen on any forum.... You hit the nail right on the head... I cant tell you how many times Ive used the walmart line referring to the price of milk..... Its unfortunate that most ppl dont know what goes into owning a small business and or pricing quality products.... instead of being positive they bicker and grow this unknown hate towards you and your products even before being a supporting customer.... fortunately this is probably one of the only forums ive been on where everyone seems down to earth and are very supportive!

Great info and by far great forum! Proud to be a supporting member and vendor!
