RX42B motor prices

2713 Views 41 Replies 14 Participants Last post by  stoner
With the recent problems at SCX the supply of spare parts in the UK has been virtually non-existent so, having a need to buy some RX42B motors, I have been obliged to look further afield for supplies.

Now, even if they were available, I would need to pay in excess of £12 for one in the UK. I have just bought some from the USA for £7.20 each, including shipping from the other side of the Atlantic. Moreover they arrived on my doorstep in just 5 days which is better than some UK suppliers can manage.

So who is making an excess profit here then?

Anybody know a US supplier of SCX NASCAR rear axles and tyres?

I wouldn't say no-one's making a bit extra profit, but it's probably to do with exchange rates. There'll be 2 exchange rate conversions on stuff bought from US sellers. I don't know what difference it will make, but it will make a difference.

I've noticed that SCX stuff from the USA is cheaper, though, and I've taken advantage.
