Default Cheapest place to buy an RC8T?

Whats the cheapest place to buy an RC8T online right now? No real LHS here, so looking online. Ultimate hobbies had them at one time for 485. Anyone see them for that price or cheaper anywhere?

That's the cheapest price I've seen for one. In other words I've not seen one below $485. I wanted an RC8T, but ended with an 8ight-T because they could be had for $275....

Homer has some coupons you can use if he has it in stock. If not he can get it.

Best prices in town.

Ther reason the 8T is selling for $300 is because the 8T 2.0 will be coming out very soon, well thats what i was told. I have been racing a 8T for going on 2 years now, and have no problems at all..it is a pretty good truck.IMO

The reason i said homer would be the cheapiest is because if you contact homer direct, im sure he will give you a smokeing deal. Not sure if he can do $485, but he will work with you for sure

Only the best of the best driver can tell a difference, and that's not me. I'm betting that a good driver with a 1.0 can tear up a mediocre driver of a 2.0. Marketing works when you believe the 1.0 isn't good enough any more and that having a 2.0 will make YOU better.

BTW.. I said I would prefer an 8T, but I'm not spending $500+ on a Truggy that I'm going to beat the livin' hell out of. On the track it won't make a difference to me speed wise. The Losi 8T is very competitive, and at $275 for a roller how can you ask for anything more. This is going to fill the gap for me until the MBX6T comes out.

kITS NOT INCLUDED.Along with a bunch of other stuff. I like Homer and use him often but he never has anything in stock and I am impatient. Hate to backorder. Do call him though. Homer and Lisa will hook you up!
