Frontline will and can rip you big for someparts. I have been to there
shop and have shopped online. Overall - pretty average. There online
ordering system is rubbish. And there customer service (email replys
and talking to them) can vary quite alot.
No reccomendation comes from me for them.
Radio Model Supplies on the other hand - the best hobby shop I have delt with in Australia.
Then again - I haven't really used Dr. Mark 'MRC' Savage yet sooo.......
mark is the man
order new parts every week and he has never not had the stock, as well he has never not posted the items when said. he really is the only guy to order you r savage parts off..............he makes the hobby worthwhile
Frontline will rip you off on most things for certain...... for example....
They sell the Fusion 21 to HobbyCo and then HobbyCo sell it for around $100 less than Frontline !!
Schumacher parts can be ordered and delivered cheaper and quicker from
Schumacher themselves...... it took about 3 months to get clutch shoes
for the XTR, a mate got his from Schumacher UK cheaper and in 5 days.
HobbyCo sell their GS stock to Frontline but carry no parts for
them..... I ordered a spur gear for $12.95 and was told 1 week
eta...... I cancelled it after 5 months then found it at HobbyCo in
stock for $5.
Trust me..... only go in there for small items.
I wont say anything about knowledge and service either because I know some of the staff and wouldnt want to ruffle any feathers.
