$510 For What!!!??? - 10.18.2009, 08:14 PM

I dont get it MMM combo $300, that means the motor plate, pinion and cover are $210. What is going on?

Maybe it's because the motor is black instead of green. I don't get that combo either, it must be some kind of mistake. The MMM, a pinion, the motor plate and cover but no motor mount. And they write ''Tower's low price''

It's weird, it kinda looks like Tower is starting to part out kits like many do on ebay, but they're doin' it wrong


No brain, no headaches.

Mistercrash, your post reminded me of this:

You're doing it wrong!

FYI just Google the phrase, there are some good ones!

I noticed yesterday that tower is SUPER over priced on some if not all parts. Ex: Towers price on savage flux: $614. TCS price: $575. And alum. big bores are $90 on tower, and $65 on TCS.

Yes, but with the super saver discount towers price is $614 - $60 = $554 which is pretty good and shipping would be free.

I already saw that one. But before the $510 there was a mistake on exactly that combo, it was for $110/130/150! (Don't remember the exact amount, but it was cheap) Someone here in the Netherlands bought it for $110/130/150, he didn't get it yet, but it would be a killer deal if he gets the ESC AND motor...

Another case of "Please tell me no one actually bought this." It must be a good deal though, since it's a huge discount off of the regular price of $1200. You can save almost $350!!!!!
