Oh well, I guess I wait some more
My tower order keeps showing the same thing as yours. Guess that means we're on the next shipment (maybe) ?

There's an on line hobby shop with 2 kits in stock on ebay. Their priced a little high for me. I'll wait for my back order. But if anyone is interested, here's the link again.

Ya, not too keen on the negative eBay feedback for that seller. I have a Yokomo BMAX4-III and a Losi 22-4. I'll just keep them around for now and continue to wait for my Tower backorder

99.3% positive with 38,700+ reviews is pretty damn good actually.

But I have a hard time paying $50 over retail for the slowest possible "free" shipping. Definitely to temp the impatient. Which I am. haha

[QUOTE=Matt :-);13374588]I posted this link on here last night, but someone must have taken it down. Don't know why they would do that. There are two brand new D413 kits available on ebay.



thanks Matt

Hoping my Tower backorder ships soon, I backordered on 4/14.
man, it went from limited qunatities to late July VERY QUICK!
Tower must be getting 4 at a time from Great Planes
At least Great Planes are more helpful, Tower's people SUCK! Like they can't buzz receiving and ask how many came in LAST shipment! Really, Use your computer...that's what it is for! AND AGAIN I say, HPI/Hot Bodies, buy a $20 TILE throw it in with the kits when they go out across the pond! You can track it with an iPhone! F R U S T R A T E D!!!

In all fairness to Torrence and HB/HPI, NO ONE told anyone to run out and buy this car, either via Pre-Release or early release. Furthermore, if your order hasn't been fulfilled, you haven't been charged (or at least you shouldn't be) and any vendor you "placed" your order with shouldn't be held liable, for things their suppliers don't even have control of. This is a new car and the manufacturer can only produce so many kits for the thousands upon thousands of customers who scooped up as many kits as they could along with as many parts as they could get a hold of.

Having experienced a horrid race weekend a couple of years ago when freakishly, I went through 5 front arms in 2 days, and then limping home with a fractured one (bad batch of Durango front arms for the 410) and a detached shock in the A-main, I personally make sure to horde enough parts for my cars to ensure I can get through even the worst weekend. I'm sure with the 413, this is the case and it depleted everyone's spare parts supply. Now they are trying to get all their vendors restocked with both kits and parts but are caught out by slow turn around from their suppliers and shipping processes. Associated did the best of all companies in this regard in that they waited until they had a bit more in the way of spares so their spare parts drought was brief. TLR took a little longer to replenish supply a couple years ago and other brands took as long as HB is now and eventually all was OK.

I fully understand how frustrating it can be to be waiting this long, but always rememberů patience pays off in the long run. I'm sure every last one of you who are upset and disappointed with not having your kits and parts as soon as you'd prefer will be completely satisfied once you get your stuff. This is a well engineered vehicle and everyone who has driven it has liked it quite a bit.

Have faith in Torrence and HB. They will come through for you.

No disrespect intended. If you would have notified me about the reason why you deleted my post, I would not have re posted it. I personally will not do it again, but if your going to edit links posted on this thread for items that can be purchased, you might want to get busy because there are tons of them on here. You missed links posted by other members on the same page that I posted on that will lead to the possible purchase of cooling fans. In a court of law, this is referred to as selective prosecution.

Like I said, no disrespect intended. In the future I'll just p.m. the link to anyone who may need some help finding an item that's hard to come by.

Tony Rivas and I p.m.'d each other. He explained to me the it's the ebay sale links that are against the rules on this thread. Other links are not the issue.

If one of us notices an item on ebay in the future that a fellow racer might need, we can just p.m. the link to each other in order to keep ebay links off this thread.

Simple enough for me.

I got mine last night off tower, my backorder said limit stock so I went ahead and grabbed it, I actually figured that when you had back order that they would automatically be filled but anyway I have one on the way now.

Cheers for the link to let us know they had some in.
