hey I got a tracking number

Hobbyking sent me a tracking number go so far .

Waiting on my first order from

Well I decided since spring is here that I should be getting some new gear to replace some broken stuff and to just make my life a little easier . Since I needed a new brushless ESC ,and a few Lipo's I placed a order with Hobby Kings  USA warehouse mostly because everywhere else was out of Lipo's I wanted So here I am waiting for my stuff to get packaged and shipped . Frankly I'm alittle frustrated that it has taken 3 days and counting to gather and package my 8 piece order knowing that after they ship it it will still take 5-6 days to get to me . Alas that is the price I pay for their cheap prices .

Since I'm already here guess i should tell you what I ordered .

Integy i10BAJA / Turnigy Quanum E-Guana 1/10 2WD Desert Racing Buggy / Turnigy 1/10 Brushless 2WD Desert Racing Buggy Parts

Well in my snooping across the internet I came across the Integy i10BAJA and thought I would post the little tidbit. This buggy is another variant of the same chassis as the Hobby King  / Turnigy Quanum E-Guana 1/10 2WD Desert Racing Buggy and that if you need parts you now have at least 2 sources to get them . Also don't forget that the E-Guana  has a brother the Turnigy 1/10 Brushless 2WD Desert Racing Buggy and many have have has success with swapping parts with the Kyosho Ultima DB 1/10 well have a look these 2 cars .

Sunday, April 7, 2013 Stainless Steel Hardware Kits – 800 Pieces

Well like most RC modelers I go through a lot of screws and buying from the local hardware store can get costly especially if you're looking to buy more than just a few screws . In my online wanderings I came across where they sell 3 mm screw's in bulk for a estonishingly cheap price . Right now they have discontinued their steel set but are still selling their 800 piece stainless steel button head   set for $30.00 plus $5.00 shipping . After placing my first order and getting it in no time I can guarantee that I will be a repeat customer so check them out .

Included in kit:

Each size of hardware is individually bagged for your sorting convenience. The screws are weighed to obtain the total amount and should be with 1% accuracy.

Their own words.

We wanted to pass an awesome deal onto anyone in the RC hobby. We are buying screws in huge quantities to be able to offer them to everyone at an extremely low price.Like many other custom builders, I was having to buy screws from places like McMaster before. However a small order would cost well over $50.We assembled these package deals to be able to move the maximum quantity at the lowest price. This is an absolute steal of a price. These bulk kits would cost you more than two and half times this amount at McMaster.If you don't believe me go check it out, it’s pretty shocking. Stainless steel price comparison: 
With just $5 shipping cost assumption (McMaster is generally 
much higher) from them you would have to
pay $72.81 for this exact same thing.
These kits are all 3mm hardware, all screws
are button head. 800 pieces total per kit!
