Default Losi 8ight kit or roller

Anyone know anywhere to get the 1.0 kit cheaper than what its sold at?
Like i saw one sell on here for 250 brand new but i doubt anyone has a brand new kit laying around. If anyone has one or know a link to a cheap one let me know.
Thanks

i know the roller has the same parts as the kit , if you want to learn how to put together a buggy than i would get the kit thats what i did and i pretty much know what everything is . but it does take a while to put together if its your first time but its pretty easy to build through the diffs and the linkage take the most time to do . if you want to just go out on the track rightway than get the roller but do check over everything espially the cvds in the center espeilly . but u will like the eight it jumps good as hell and its pretty tuff and does boy have steering .

You won't find a shop hanging on to a 1.0 kit or race roller.. and if someone at has one at home that they'll sell on here they'll easily get $300+ for it. Losi 8ight's have done quite well in regard to resale value, and new kits for 1.0 are rare and therefore fetching good money still.
