Hey, If you guys are trying to buy in the U.S. there is a website called http://www.jdmtoys.com. Their prices are the lowest I’ve seen around. I saw them last night at Hot Import Nights at the L.A. Convention Center. All their Bit Char-G were $30 – $35. Accessories were $5 w/ Bit Char-G purchase. They tole me their websitsite price was a about $ 5 more but shipping is included. Check them out.

I feel like I’m getting the hump from Toy East, having spent about $180 with them (that figure includes the postage) my last orderwas for two of those GP motorcycles, from’out-of-the-box’one won’t steer and the other won’t drive, Ihave sent two emails so far, one was 10 days ago the other 4 days ago.

If you are in the US, give my webshop a try too..it’s at http://www.junkyspot.com
It is definitely more worth it to go to toyeast or hlj and etc if you are in australia or england, because shipping and delivery times aren’t bad. If you are in the US, however, delivery times take longer and shipping is what kills you when you order from these places.
Make sure to compare the total price including shipping when comparing pricing. For example, JDM does have a large selection and good pricing. I beat about half their prices and they beat about half of my prices. On some models my shipping costs are cheaper total and sometimes theirs are cheaper. I’m glad to see more US retailers popping up. As a customer myself, I was getting really tired of seeing Bit Char-G cars sell in the SF Bay Area everywhere for $45…which is why I started up shop 🙂

Hm nevermind, I do beat their prices…most of the time..they must have upped their prices since I last looked maybe. Ah well.

Jaydeman, you are right, they do got a wider selection then you do, and your prices do seem to advertised lower. But do you offer free shipping as well. I figure once you add the shipping, you guys are probably roughly the same price. I enjoy both yer sites, and both have lots to offer those of us here in the U.S. that want more Bit Char-G’s. Thanks to people like you and http://www.jdmtoys.com, we can enjoy the fun.

I actually meant total price. From reading your posts (and the other guy..sprintz or something?) if they sold bit char-gs at shows from 30-35, but then sell them on the website for 35-40..thatwould mean$5 for shipping. So if someone buys 2 cars..then it’s really an extra $10 for shipping, and etc. That’s my only criticism, the shipping is misleading.
Their show prices sounded pretty decent though 🙂 I assume they do local pickups and subtract $5 from the price?
I received better pricing on a couple models, and received some new models I was missing, sosome of my prices were lowered as well…jdm still beats me on the Celicas and Yoshi still though 🙂 And the other models that my pricing is too crazy on I just won’t stock, sell, or list, but I do now have the majority of them from $23.99 and up.
I’ve been referring the customers that isometimes cannot help to jdm.

Ah and jdm has agood selection of aftermarket upgrade parts as well btw 🙂
Let us know when they get the other cars in too..DigiQ and iRacer..I don’t plan on carrying those but get requests, so when they get them in stock I’ll be referring people to them 🙂

It’s all good in the hood ya know. As long as there are plenty of sites that offer better prices than others, gives everyone the choice to choose. I can’t believe I’ve seen some U.S. guys charging well over $50 for Bit CharG. THat is insane. Talk about getting raped on prices. So yeah, I think that http://www.junkyspot.com and http://www.jdmtoys.com are very reasonable. By the, where are you located? Oh, I got the Supra, it is tight, too bad it only comes with a 1.0 motor. Oh wells, another one I gotta upgrade.
