Default Losi 8ight T 2.0 kit vs roller

Why is the roller $100 less than the kit. I know you get two sets of wheels with the kit but that doesn't seem to warrant a $100 price difference

it's cuz the kit is a new item and some people would rather pay $100 extra and put it together themselves than to buy a prebuilt car. i don't think the roller is supposed to be as cheap as it is on amain, they just have it on sale i think.

the reason is because HH is trying to blow out the rollers. Right now is the time to buy a roller. The kit is no different then the roller other then its not put together. right now that $100+ price difference is worth the time its going to take to take the roller apart and build it how i want it.

Get a hold of GregB on here and the price difference will be even bigger if they havn't already sold all the rollers they had.

rollers are on sale. buddy of mine works at local hobby shop, says they got a few rollers for an astronomically low price. Apparently Losi is trying to unload the rollers
