Thanks, it's must be a web error, because in the web appears like there is stock.
Cheers.

please search and read reviews of shopatron. you are not buying from them per sae but a consortium of shops that have agree'd to participate in their system. all that means really is that some shop, somewhere has it listed in their system as in stock. it doesn't mean it actually is.

banquer is correct. Hobby shops fill the orders and if no one fills them, then they get sent to us. We are currently on back order with KO Japan and it seems like everyone around the world is waiting to get their orders filled by them.

ko propo staff,
very good to know unfulfilled orders go through you. my experience is mostly through the kyosho side and it is not straight forward.

Just to clarify, it's not even that accurate - it's more like anything that the manufacturer hasn't explicitly marked discontinued - it has nothing to do with anyone's stock status - they accept orders regardless, allow LHSs to "bid" on the order, and then when none of them have the item, you get a nice little "sorry we took your order even though we can't fulfill it" email - like Arch said, search the forums for reviews of Shopatron - it's pretty much a lose-lose for everyone involved except Shopatron! :rolleyes:

FYI you can use the "Out of Stock Notify" feature on shop.tinyrc.com to get an email notification when we get more in stock:

my FAVORITE is when a portion of your order cannot be fulfilled and it is bid out to other shops you get a nice email saying if you still want your items, you will have to pay additional shipping fee's on top of what you've already paid.:rolleyes:
