Default What is your opinion of AsiaTees.com

Hello,

Long time lurker but finally decided to join. I probably should of aksed this BEFORE I purchased, but alas... too late for that now.

I'm just curious as to get some opinions of AsiaTees.com. They seem to have a LOT of stock for R/C parts and prices are damn resonable. I ordered a few things for my RC18t as I wanted to upgrade some weak parts that were plastic, to aluminum (and really because some of those parts are broken NOW).

I would like to get a tracking #, so I can track the shipment but I never remember receiving one. I got a GoogleCheckout # but thats it, and I emailed them and received no response, but I will give them time to respond, I did afterall email them on friday evening (HK time) and if the sales dept works regular buisiness hours they were just leaving as I wrote and probably wont be back in till monday morning... no harm, no foul... I'll wait.

I am however pretty impatient when it comes to internet shipments and at the very least would like a tracking # so I can check it.


Anyway RC people, whats your opinions?

I don't agree, as I've ordered a few times from them in the past with no issues. Recently got a DT02 front shock mount, ordered a TB01 steering upgrade. I haven't dealt a ton with them, though - I'd have to dig to see if I got tracking info or not.

They are in HK though, so things might take a while to get here.

Where did this information come from? I too have ordered from them with great success.

They usually take 2-3 weeks, depending on where you live......

Nah, just Chinese wholesalers. I have ordered from them in the past.

They move A TON of merchandise, and as a result, they frequently mess up orders. It's a lot like ordering from DealExtreme. There is a good chance they will mess up your order, and deliver takes A LONG time... but you deal with it because you want a dozen keychain flashlights for $3.

ive bought from deal extreme- NEVER again, took a YEAR to get a expensive flashlight, no thanks.

ive dealt with dinodirect, they are a bit better but things take 2weeks to a month, in my case a back-ordered item took 3months.


use budget china stores in the off season, that way you are not in a hurry to get them.

I was mistaken then. My apologies.

It used to be only tshirts, back in the web 1.0 days, then it was like DealExtreme, now it's only RC cars for some reason.

We used to get their topcad for our store. They're a little cheaper because they're ship from their Hong Kong locations. We don't buy from them anymore because of complaints from customers, it's just not worth our time to deal with things like that. All the parts are just reject items from Integy, like some scratches here and there or the items made by a softer metal not good enough for US or EU market. If you ask Asiatees, they're tell you the same thing those are all Integy items just ship from Hong Kong. You got to keep in mind those are the 2nds and that's why they are cheaper.

As religion is an illegal topic here, I must ask that we end this necromancy!
