and you have a problem with HBs price?
My Local hobby shop has already quoted me a price of $380..out the door..so it seems to me that A main is a bit high on this one..I have seen the shops price and all they add is 10%..
and yes the distributors already have the price listed and their taking back orders..

What is that hobby shop
give me a number and will call and order from there too
that is a good price and this is how much it should be
the big shops are getting a large mark up from this if this is true
tower hobbies has it for $449

I really wanna pre-order one but I never owned a hot bodies I have owned HPI and I hear its the same company.

I think wether I like it or not I will have to wait for a review and what people say.

WOW ya get me the number as well.... thats under shop cost. post it here.... I'll cancel my 50 pre-orders with HB and order them from your LHS lol

I think if you check back with that shop, they must be thinking of the D8 buggy, not the truggy. Have them look it up by part #, I doubt theyre going to pay the dist to essentially give you a car kit.

if they sell it to you for 380.00 they aren't making but about 20-25 dollars. Unless they are ordering a crap load of them. Fastserve says eta 4/15 looks pretty sweet

Its actually Nurburg, as in Nurburgring. The only reason i say that is because that is my favorite track for racing and always has been!!

I think the truck like nice...I won with the D8 buggy the first time i raced it.
As it stands right now im driving a st-rr for truck and d8 for buggy both with new 621t's. Dying to put the new motor on the d8t. 4 of us i know are getting them when they release, so between us we should have em figured out in no time.
