Default Ace Hobby Distrubtors - Crooks?

Yep, that's the question.

Are Ace Hobby Disturbutors crooks or what.

Tower Hobbies directed me there because I am looking for a replacement carburetor for a Thunder Tiger Pro 46 engine, and said that Ace is the US distributor.

I asked them for a quote - we'll see what they have to say.

Why am I asking if they are crooks?

They list the Thunder Tiger Pro 46 engine at the Manufacture's Suggested Retail Price (which doesn't mean jack IMO) of $182.99.[sm=eek.gif]
See: http://www.acehobby.com/ace/TTR9141.htm

Compared to Tower's price of $79.99[sm=thumbup.gif] See: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXKF97&P=ML
- that makes me kinda wonder what the heck is going on with Ace. More than double the price![:@]

Any comments?
