    Where to buy

    I live in Saskatchewan Canada and my LHS charges a lot more for batteries of lower quality than almost any other place i can find. Shipping from US to Canada is pretty steep so im wondering if anyone can PM me a place to buy order batteries in Canada.

    Is this against the rules if people PM me so its not publicly advertised?

    I think you posted in the wrong area, but try SPC. I like their lipos.

    Spc is in usa isnt it? Im trying to avoid shipping across usa/canada border if possible.

    I had seen a link to a site based in quebec but its all french, im trying to find a canadian based (english) place that sells good batteries.

    Oh yea I forgot about the border thing. Maybe you could be the great white north distributor for SPC. Is shipping across the border a big deal?

    Hey Logan, I was in the same boat you are. My LHS is pretty expensive also, but does carry quality stuff. I ordered some lipos from tower as thats where I often order my parts. Little did I know when they ship lipos it has to be sent rush. SO I paid a ton to get them. Normal shipping from them to Ontario isnt bad at all though.

    Shipping from spc is around $32 for 2 lipos. Seems pretty high for such small items. My LHs sells 2s 25c 5000 mah batteries for $52, 3s 25c 5000 for like $70 and 3s 25c 6400 for $92. Even after shipping from spc i would be getting a better battery for close to same price. I was just hoping there would be a canadian distributer somewhere.

    Ya me too. There isnt much for us in Canada. The Canadian Traxxas distributer is based out of BC however.

    UPS shipping from the US to Canada can be expensive and sadly there is no good way to reduce those UPS costs.
