That's weird. Premier RC in Portland got their T5m's in yesterday via their Facebook. I was hoping to hear good news today all around.

Keep in mind that if a shop orders 10 kits, post an eta of 3/27, take pre-orders until they sell those 10 they might remove the date and insert a date when the second batch will arrive.

Moral of the story, don't always trust the date posted because there are other factors that play into it.

Can someone talk me down from this ledge? I'm having thoughts of jumping into a Kyosho RT6.

Nope, let me help push you off into it.

You most likely can't go wrong with either truck.

Except no.

I think LHS have only gotten them over the last day or so. Team drivers have been getting them for about a week.

And those would be team drivers who typically get their kits about a week before the public.

It normally takes amain and tower a couple days to do inventory and process the kits. Then they start filling back orders. so you may not see "In Stock" for a bit.

Do the team guys put in an order for one, is it verbal, or is it just sent to all team people? I noticed some got them and some didn't is why I ask

We have to put in a back order. We all order on the site.... Unless you're on the Cav level lol. A lot of us got bumped off the first shipment to get more to the customers since the shipping delay took so long.

In what way at all would it benefit AE to come on here and relay untruthful info about T5m's shipping ?
