    Angry I need to vent!

    So, all three of our slayer pro's have broken parts, including bent frame on my younger sons truck.
    I order all the parts from TOWER HOBBIES. The parts sit in the garage for a month untouched because I'm too busy with work to deal with it.
    The other day It's Time! Start replacing parts only to realize....WRONG PARTS!
    So last night my son and I start the swap-out on his truck, moving everything over to the new chassis.
    Tonight we're finishing up, and realize when we try to bolt the front end parts on.....you guessed it...
    WRONG CHASSIS!.
    My son is disappointed, and I'm edit.
    Out of a box full of new parts, only a half dozen are for the slayer pro.
    Unbelievable.
    O.K. I feel better now.

    Don`t worry. USA postal it is very fast work. 3-5 days and you can rebuild your truck. I think your son can take 40-70% work some self.
    I like the technical beauty!

    Happens ANY time you order ANTYTHING and let it sit.... It's the Ultimate invitation for Murphy to show up.. Bet if you jumped on the install the parts would have matched up perfectly... Call me superstitious I guess, but it always seems to happen that way with me...

    ^^^^^^^Absolutely^^^^^ I bought a new charger a few years ago but was too intimidated by it so I let it sit NIB until a couple of months ago. I was going to jump on the LiPo band wagon and remembered hey I've got a charger that can handle those, so pull out the box, study the instructions, get all set to go and wouldn't you know it...darn thing wouldn't work and of course by this time the warranty period was well past...what a bummer...

    Is this company and prices legit? I'm sceptical of anything that seems too good to be true.
