I was thinking of extending the site to include an online store.


If you think it is a good idea, what parts, kits would you like to see first? Also, would you use it if we only accepted PayPal initially?


Regards,

I Think its a good idea, things such as big and small decals would be cool, id put them on my truck



also, as nismo stated us youngens cant use paypal so i think a system like the one on towerhobbies would be bets, since you can put in your credit card details and whatnot and its all very easy.


I know i dont wanna set up a paypal account when your on the other side of town i think itd be easier to use the tower set up.


Also, Do MODS get free decals

i think bodies and wheels would be quite a challenge... maybe we can stick with decals for now

yes maybe......well it depends on what type of store you want then, just ausrc decals, or a full blown online site....?

if it were full online store, it would require the stocking of a lot of parts, kits and other things which would cost a considerable amount of money. Therefore, i think the decals would be simplest.

truthfully i dunno aye, but decals would be pretty cool to have i wouldnt put them on my stocker body its decalled enough as it is, they would probably go on the body i think ill get for my birthday (april) so that gives us time to design, and print the decals

at my lhs they have this sticker paper for your cars and it is water proof and really tough and sticks good, but it is $50 bucks for a set( 5 sheets in a set) you could do that if you have a inkjet printer because they print out high quality stuff, and for the payment issue i think you should keep ur options open because everyone might not be able to use the same thing, because i got paypal and thats what i would use and it is easy aswell.

I think I would like to do more than decals. Things that are cheap in the US but expensive over here. I will bring a bunch in and sell them on the site - that kind of thing.

HPI Pullstarts
Tires/Wheels (Proline)

Also, possibly a member can request a part and a quantity and you can order it for them, but cheaper from like tower
