no, they tend to send out the code on a monthly basis, by mail, or maybe by email. A few customer gets even better codes but it's only valid for their accounts.
Anyways, most people get the same code, so you can use it as soon as sign up.

I would sign up first and pay for the membership. The codes are also available on your profile. Once you sign up, under your account information the higher valued promotion codes appear on the bottom right. You don't need to wait for an email but you will probably get one at least once a week.

Place an order where all you're purchasing is super saver club. Once you pay go back and click on "my account" and at the bottom right hand side of the page will be all your club codes. Just click on the one you want to use and it will automatically be applied to your cart. Personally, I used the $75 off of $500...ordered spare arms, wheels, and what not.

For those in the NorCal area, NorCal Hobbies is scheduled to get 3 of these by the end of the month.

You're right about that. I only buy from A-main when they have back stock parts I want in stock. Most of our orders have been over seas and actually cheaper. Having been through the agony of being a team driver for HB in the past parts support is a MAJOR concern. Having Great Planes in the pictures is a plus and worthy of me giving the buggy a look..

Default Stumbled upon this forum

Man. When I get bored, I get curious. When I get curious things "accidentally" appear in my shopping cart -- not sure how this happens : )

I have had a DEX410 V3 for over a year now. The relationship at first was bumpy, but we have smoothed things out since. She has been really good -- avoiding DNFs in this class at our local track meant you did pretty well. I feel the DEX is pretty durable compared to other offerings, I do feel that I had to drive it extra smooth to avoid that lonely walk back to the pit table, car in pieces.

So… that being said I am excited about this ride. What sold me is the concern of this class being fragile and HB coming up with a possible solution, at least they say they have. I am excited about the monocoque arms and triangulated shock towers -- two of the most frequent breaks I have witnessed first hand.

Just watching the videos of Ty driving, granted he's a phenomenal driver the buggy looks really good. Carves nice lines and appears strong like bull.

I'll have this soon… then I'll decide if it will replace my sweet DEX410.

Welcome to the group of highly anticipatory people counting the days like a 6 year old before Christmas! I am really looking forward to people's reports on how it drives in comparison to other wheelers.

and I placed two orders to get the $60 off of $400, and another $45 off of $300...

tires, spares, some SCT bodies...

tower's prices are pretty great if you don't want to spend countless hours sifting FEeBay...
