    Devious macanations

    So, I was just shopping Summit for brakes for my 1:1 Miata. Now a full set of rotors pads and hardware for the whole car is about $200 and Change.
    Now I know Summit also carries Traxxas parts and kits. So I look and they ha be the 4tec2.0 chassis in stock for $205 ( same price as AMain or most LHS ).
    I start thinking; would my wife really know that brakes for the Miata DONT cost $400 ?
    After all full brake jobs I have done on other cars have cost more than that.
    I probably won’t do this sneaky purchase, but the thought has crossed my mind.

    Glad to hear you aren't going to sneak it on there...but...it probably wouldn't hurt to casually mention it to the wife...a little for the 1:1, a little for the R/C...

    I know she’ll be ok with the budget for the 1:1.
    Plus I found the same brake assembly elsewhere for Way less than Summit.
