You get what you pay for in life. My margins are very thin with my parts.
I only make the best for you guys. Been running my little rc parts business that way for over 7 years. You would be very shocked at the costs involved in machining, cost of steel, working with a distributor and all the other factors involved in being a small parts manufacture IN THE USA. My parts are not made over seas where labor is a bowl of rice and $2.00 a day.
Thanks for your support guys.

Thanks for the kind words Brother. I do a lot, I mean a lot of racing and bashing. I support a lot of Losi drivers at my local tracks and not one of them has had one of my parts fail in the heat of battle. I have seen another manufactures cheaply made Losi CVDs snap in half. The front stocks, just break in the cup with on the gas landings. It bothers me that a lot of guys cant afford to run my parts. I do my best to keep the costs down. Anyone that noes me will tell you the same. Im not getting wealthy making rc parts.

The losi parts are expensive to make. The cost of the steel, lots of machine opps as well. They are not straight forward parts like the stock parts.
My parts are also made in the USA. I have gotten several quotes, most shops don't want to machine 300m steel.
