Default shipping from rcmart and towerhobbies

All my shipping is very close to LA, so can someone tell me how much a ta-05 w/ allnecesities will cost to get shipped to LA from rcmart.com and towerhobbies.com
I think rcmart is alot more expensive to ship right?
I want fast shipping, but not if its going to be extremely expensive ($50+)
i just want to know shipping costs so i can get my full pocketworth.
any shipping help is greatly appreciated.

EDIT
oh yeah, are there any parts ishould replace on the ta05 beforehand?

Towerhobbies has a flat ground shipping rate: $8.99
RCMart varies because they are located in Asia (China?).

yeah they're in hong kong. id say expect to pay at least $25+ for standard shipping. Lets not mention that you'll probably want to get some type of shipping insurance.

ok, i knew rcmart was different, but man 25+ is no worth it. if i can im gonna order a car today, but i am lacking any info on the car i want eg. a ta-05, what it comes with, ive never had a hobby car before, so i need to know what ill need to assemble it. glue screwdrivers i don't know.
thanks for the info on the shipping, i found the towerhobbies shipping rates, itll be about $20 to get it in 2 days. thats good for me.

tower hobbies items are more expensive, so the shipping in the US is less. rc mart items are cheaper, so the shippin is more since they are international. Just look for availability.

God you guys are so tight.

I ordered over $250 of stuff in one order from RCMart and it cost me just $18 to ship.

To me; thats around a Tenner.
