Guys, thanks for all the feedback on the New Shop (http://shop.tinyrc.com) in the thread "Need Pictures In Shop!!!! (http://mini-zracer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15544&page=2)" and elsewhere - I've started a new thread here to help consolidate feedback into a single location.

I'd really appreciate it if everyone would take a moment to look through the new shop, put a few items in your basket, wishlist etc., and let us know what you think.

We also need people to start posting product reviews - in fact, we're giving a $10 Gift Certificate to the author of the best review posted before Friday 9/30/05. By "best", we don't mean most glowing, we mean most thorough and well-written - the rating could be 1/5 as long as there is a technical explanation of why, and that grammatical and spelling rules are properly observed etc.

Thanks in advance for your help in making the new Shop the best it can be - it's here to serve you, our members, so please let us know all of your ideas! :)

Is it me or is there still not many pictures? I talk to a least one new persons a week that says why they do not buy from here or other sister stores is because of lack of pictures. I think if you had more pictures you would increase sales at least 4 times what you sell now. Old saying that is so true
A picture is worth a thousand words!

I already posted a few reviews on some of the body sets in the shop. I may post a few more for some of the new stuff I got.

Maybe it's my computer, but no matter which section I click on in the Mini-Z sections all I get is the featured products.

Slightly off topic, but I see you have a lot of Mini-X parts but I don't see the Mini-X ESC/Reciever combo unit listed. Do you not carry that? If not do you know where it can be found?

davkin, can you send us a screencap, I'm not sure I understand your error; what browser are you using btw?

RE Mini-X, if enough demand is shown, we can get some more in! :)

Here are the bearing reviews, these are good products and I thought that they needed a review. These are mostly the ones that I have used.

Hey it looks like the shop now has a bunch of pictures in the ready sets and auto scale sections!! nice work! (sorry if I'm late on this).

One question:

The Mclaren MP-19 F1 autoscale has a picture of the MP-17....which is one is the actual item?

thanks.

Please thank Arch2B for the ASC/RS pics! :) The pics are not always dead on, please rely on the description and part number if there is any discrepancy - for example you'll also notice that some models have a different color than the one listed as we only had pics of one of the available colors. :)

Any chance of making the "shop" button on the top of this page taking us directly to the new shop instead of having to go through the old shop? Thanks.

Yep, it's coming, it's just that the sub-categories, search, cart, featured item, parts DB etc. still link to the old shop too - should we just nuke all of the lighter grey menu?

I would keep the parts DB link but just link the shop button over to the new shop. For newer forum members, I would think, they would shop through the old shop then have to find the item again in the new shop.

For veteren forum members, we know the shop is about 3 links away. For me at least, I have yet to bookmark the new shop. I just click through.


OH, and what happend to the login at the new shop? I cannot find it.

Thanks.

Yup agreed- all the important stuff (i.e. shop) should be one click away.

I'd like to add my vote to getting rid of the old shop links. If the old shop is not being updated, I don't think anything on the lighter gray menu is useful any more. As bda52 pointed out, you don't want to confuse/annoy new users who might search for a part, click through, and find themselves in a position where they have to search for it all over again. You could also possibly end up with users going elsewhere because they are looking for a part that is not listed in the old shop, but is in stock in the new one.

honestly, until we can get some color coding for the model of mini-z the parts are listed for in the new show I would really like the old shop to remain so that I can find things for my different mini-zs and then go to the new shop and order... until it is all transfered anyway.
