Default WHATS UP WITH HOTBODIES!!!!

im having 0 luck finding a new d4 world champ kit anywhere. thease kits seem to ALWAYS be backorderd everywhere, i also see that speedtech is now carrying the car wich is great but they to are backorderd. so whats up!!! is it due to hotbodies working hard to get the d8 on the shelfs? if thats the case then thats understandable and i do know they have to come over sea but cmon man I NEED ONE!!!! LOL butt man tower/horizon/stormer/speed tech? man and why does amainhobbies stock the parts for them but dont stock the kits? does anybody have any inside info? its like waiting for a new car to hit the market.:c ry:

there are a couple places on line that have the regular d4 but not the world champ and to upgrade to a world car would be kinda spendy. i just hope that one of the hotbodies sponcerd drivers see's this thread and could give us some info.

I got one of the last 3 Hot Bodies had in stock, I beleive they are waiting on a large shipment to come in, even some of the other team drivers are unable to purchase the D4 WCE. There should be more out soon, I am just not sure when.

Take some caution ordering from Ultimate. If you live close, call and save one over the phone if they are in stock and pick it up the same day. Go in there knowing exactly what you want because you don't know if you'll get some schmuck taking the order. See the "what is wrong with ultimate hobbies thread" for more details...

I cant get a d4 right now either and dont have any info of value. Hopefully after the 1/8 worlds things will get rolling again.

With the 8th scale just coming out and hopefully the D2 coming out soon, and the restock of the D4, hotbodies should be very busy.

I have checked every possible US shop I could think of and have not been able to find a wce kit for yall. I have seen a few of the non-wce kits.

i cant and wont get to mad about it just cause for the past year or two hotbodies has really brought some great stuff to the rc racing market and i salute them for it and ive been amazed at the overall quality of their new stuff. im not in a huge hurry to get one but would like to get one soon. but man it just kills me at how hard the d4 is to get.

Hey Guys,

We have one D4 WCE left in stock. After that, it'll officially be on backorder with Hot Bodies.
