Default CHEAP Platinum Revo's...

This guy over on Hobby Talk is selling some new in the box for $499 right here. Thats almost $200 less than anywhere else. Get em quick because they'll be gone soon!

He must of bought hundreds of them because you don't make 200 bucks on a kit. I work at a shop and seen the price from the distributor and know we don't have 200 buck mark up.

I'm not vouching for the guy or anything, I just posted the link. If you read what he wrote:
"Thanks for the post! You know, when you own a hobby shop sometimes you just get too many of something, or order something that's just wrong for the local market ... And, sometimes it's just best to blow them out and use the money for something else that will sell well locally ... This is the case for these awesome Revo's. And yes, there are some very happy people taking advantage of this offer!"
that makes sense. If you dont think its true, call his hobby shop and ask him.
Heres the number.
Anybody whos looking for a Revo is going to be kicking themselves when these are all gone!

This is or was true as I ordered one from JPH and it was $529.99 to my door. Now that is what I call a good deal. They have a really nice support staff as well.
