Man I have been away for a while, your post count went mega up...

@Traxxas Joe

If you go in knowing what your going to buy, there is almost no way you could get the wrong part. I think I'm going to visit there, never been before.

I don't understand how you can come here and shoot down people when you can't even spell correctly, Or even make any sense when talking.

Mark was a walking dictionary on rc..... Steve who runs the rc dept now is very knowledgeable is working hard for us all... I worked for Mark at TMH and I took over as manager when Mark left... Dan who ran the TMH was man who for some reason seemed like he was trying to make the rc department to fail.... I am glad they finally got rid of him after his many blundering moves....

Its hard to take advice from someone with poor grammar. Saying they "sold you wrong parts" means that you have no idea what you wanted in the first place and completely expected the employee to know what you were talking about. There are thousands of different RC cars out there, hobby shops see hundreds of people each day... mixups happen. I used to work at my local hobby shop when I lived in Washington, I have given people the wrong parts on numerous occasions. 6 people talking at me was generally the cause. Most hobby shops do charge you extra money, its called labor. Its not like they are going to sit an assemble your broken RC car for free.

Confusion is no reason for a bad review.

I totally misread the subject of this thread.


Thought it was about avoiding time machines as a hobby in the city of Manchester, CT. ...and here I thought time machines were a GOOD hobby!
