If I pre-order now from Horizon Hobby will I receive one from the first batch?

seeing that they're back ordered I wouldn't think so, correct me if I'm wrong but when things are back ordered and you order it, it means you'll get it as soon as they're back in stock

[QUOTE=shawn213;11850652]I don't think it is breaking a forum rule,but i think it is breaking a Horizon hobby rule

I know as the hobby shop you cannot sell them online for 14 days. But i would be actually buying them for myself and re-selling them on the forums... Not sure how that grey line works out...

I dont really see what your gaining from doing this...Just buy one for yourself and let everyone else buy theirs becuz it will be just as easy for someone to have their LHS get one on order now and get it when it comes in and have it the same time you do or even get it from HH and have it ship with the rest and still receive it quick and not have to pay extra shipping to have you ship it when. Plus by the time you get it, post them for sale and finally get someome to pay(paypal?) you will have fee's and at $450+ that fee is gonna be heafty so even if you do somehow get it cheap i must be missing something to where your going to gain anything PLUS now everyone knows your plan...I guess i dont understand

Yes, you sure would. We have not sold through the first batch as of yet.

So, Horizon Hobby pre-order seems to be the fastest way to get the 2.0 kit as of right now?

Want this bad boy now! lol

I did the sums on doing the TLR tuning kit, TLR chassis, new diffs etc and it worked out better for me to sell my 1.0 as a roller
which I did and pump that plus the money I was going to spend on upgrading the 1.0 into the 2.0 and I am still ahead by $50 plus a new car overall

Now just have to wait til it comes out

Even if it would fit you would have WAY too much motor. These small 4 pole 540's make amazing power along with the 550 sct motors. There is no need for a 1/8 sized motor at all.

There are so many great options out there right now it's insane:

Pro 4 4600
HW 4700
Viper 4500
Revtech 4800

Just to name a few.

I'm surprised you guys have not given the hw xerun 4k a chance.. best motor on the market still, not that the pro4 is aweful or anything. At least tekin will have something that can match the power when they release their HD version, the current pro4 rotor is like cutting the hw rotor in 1/2 ;P (edit alright maybe not quite 1/2 lol but there is a huge difference dig back for the photo's)
