Any shop that has an account with HRP distributing will be able to sell this car.

Well were out here dodging rain but got about 68 laps in today. I am loving this car! Still using Gerds car but put my electronics in it today sense my car still hadn't shown up. (It just arrived at hotel tonight so should have it for tomorrow). Getting closer on the set-up but still have lots of things I want to try. I got down to a 43.9 today. Getting better and can not wait for the Worlds!!! This car has me very excited! :-D

HRP doesn't sell directly, only to hobbyshops. HRP sells the cars to Amain, RPP, and whatever other shop wants to carry the Durango line. If you want your shop to carry Durango parts/cars they need to have an account with HRP.

Good luck dude, you'll have lots of people rooting for you and Durango to pull out the win Heck, even an A final appearance would be pretty awsome considering you just got the car.

I understand that. I have access to a shop account and the prices listed were the same as Amain.

My bad then, you never really know who you're talking to on here sometimes. Amain isn't going to be selling them for their cost, I wonder if HRP is giving them a bigger discount? Amain did work something out with HRP when the 4wd buggy was first release. For the first month or so you could only buy parts from Amain, other shops weren't allowed to sell parts online.

FWIW, RPP and Amain both have the car listed at $699, I don't know what your dealer site shows but I'm pretty sure Durango has a MAP pricing plan for their cars.

HRP did set up MAP pricing on Durango so the big places like Amain will not be able to under sale the LHS witch in my view is good for the LHS just my 2cents
