my x2 was just wieghed yesterday at the sidewinder nitro explosion. 4118 grams which equals 9lbs 1.25oz. looks like over a half pound lighter than the rc8t. you cant compare the x2 to the x1 or the pjx, its way better.

I love Jammin products but the RC8T looks way better at my track.

Default Best price on an RC8T

So I think I am going to go with the RC8T. The price from Amain is long gone and the other link in the thread (http://www.ultimatehobbies.com/istar...=ASC80910!1007) to ultimate hobbies is on backorder.

Anyone else come across a good deal for an RC8t?

Links? Coupon codes?

Thanks!

I saw a really good deal out there in the for sale section, but the one I was interested in was gone. Hopefully you got it and it works out for you.

I think I am going to go for a new one so I am familiar with how all the parts go together. I am sure I will be repairing the truck quite a bit.

Amain has them for 559.99 plus shipping. There is a $25 off coupon that works.

Tower has them for 599.99 with a $25 off coupon and a stackable free shipping coupon. I live in IL though so I get charged tax.

Ultimate has the best deal I have seen for 489.99 plus free shipping. Only catch is that it is backordered.

The closest hobby shop to me doesn't carry AE products.
