Default Losi $150.00 rebate for the truggy?

I did a search, but I get nothing. Can't belive I'm the first to post this.

Wonder why they are doing this...

$150.00 for truggy
$75.00 for buggy

Well that puts it in the same price range as other kit Manufacturers, except HB which still wins on Bang for buck.. IMO of course..

Losi is about $20-30 at most above other kits. $150 rebate makes it much cheaper than most others.

Anyway, I believe the rebate is just to stimulate sales. BTW it isn't just the truggy. It applies to ALL race rollers(buggy, truggy, crawler). It has been posted in the 8T 2.0 forum a while ago. Most agree that it is just a sales move, nothing else.

Default REBATE

It also applies to the L8IGHT race roller!! I had my LHS order one before i even saw the rebate, was pretty happy to see it too... Now I'm going to have them get me a truggy kit and take advantage of that!!

That's a good indicator as to how tight things are really getting out there retail wise. I saw a flier for it at my lhs, that's a great deal for a very popular line of vehicles!

the losi was over priced anyway. heck it costs more than an Xray at a-main. And people always tell me an Xray costs too much. this just prices it where it should be.

It is a manufacturers rebate; has nothing to do with the purchase price.

I was simply going by A Mains prices as they are usually pretty close to the best prices out there.. And The Losi Race Roller is $100+ more than a Mugen or AE Kit..

It is off what ever price you can get it at. Say you buy the truggy at A-main for $575 with the A-main coupon. You would fill out Losi rebate form and get the UPC code on the box and the other required info (Losi has it in detail on there site of what you need). Then send it off to Losi and they send you $150. They will still do this if you pay any amount as long as you have the receipt, UPC code, and it fits into the time frame of between March 1st - April 30th and within 30 days of your purchase. LOL now only if I can find a vehicle for under $150 and they will pay me money to get there car.
