We have seen the ONE place with the pre order price of 160 for the truck I will give you that.
Where in the world are you finding the Havoc for 120? I would like to order one....the one I bought was 150+tax.
Same with the 35 radio...please give me the link to that.
You also left out batteries charger but thanks for including the servo...I forgot about that.
Then you have to ask yourself who is going to put all that cheap stuff in their truck...execpt for the havoc system...a 35 dollar radio, that was good it made pop come out my nose.
That and you forget that you don't HAVE to have anything but a battery and charger to make the slash go, I see people running the stock traxxas radio, it happens. The rest of it is up to you. However with a kit you HAVE to get everything. Don't get me wrong the slash was the first RTR I have ever bought. I like kits, but the RTR is going to be cheaper, that is one of the pluses to them.
You are living in fantasyland if you think you can put a running SC10 on the track for less then half a grand. It is easy to under estimate the true costs when you already own 90% of the stuff to make the truck go.
I do want to see the link to the $30 radio...must be an Epay AM magnum JR.
