The place is called Active Powersports. They have really good prices on RC stuff (20$ lower on some cars compared to Amain) And i was wondering if anyone has done business with them and if you did, were they a good company? would you order from them again? was the shipping quick? And if you had any problems did they help you resolve it? Thanks!

None of them really look like there discounted that much. I always base my purchases off of the first impression I get from the site.

That one looks like garbage!

Amazon has the Traxxas Boss 302 VXL for $289.09 shipped & Stormer Hobbies has them for for 287.90 shipped, and both seem to have good reputations.

Active Powersports has them for 281.29 shipped (estimated). So you are looking at ~$7 savings by ordering from them. There isn't much info online but, some reports are not good - very slow shipping and hard to get ahold of via email.

Doesn't seem worth it to me.

Thanks! I have been trying to search for info about this place all over the net and couldn't find anything. I guess I'll stick with Stormer then.
