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?

G'Day Ember.

Do you know, when I started one of my businesses, importing mining gear from Australia to the UK the ER was 2.7 : 1.

That was 2.7 Aussie dollars to 1.0 GB £.

Today that stands at 1.5 : 1.

Now, I have made no bad decisions, no bad judgements, and a good product for which the demand is strong.

But, by virtue ( ?? ), of Bill Clinton policy, and UK Gov uselessness, I am now making £80k less per year.

Positive comments only please.

All I am saying is, get your pathetic winging about the price of a slot-car in perspective !! Eh ??.
