Your right, this thread is about that. I'm a nurse. I no longer need the money from owning a hobby shop. as a matter of fact I'm gonna sell everything I can at my cost to whoever wants it and for whatever reason.

Yes, it is hyping up the car.every vehicle thread (hopefully) is, but it isnt the place to brag about a price on a vehicle that you dont even have yet. Thats what the shop marketplace is for?

Traxxas is shipping to their premier shops today. I dont know the date for distribution (then a trickle down to local shops).
If you call the Traxxas Dealer line with your zip code, they can let you know the shops that are getting the cars first by calling the Direct Shops in your area to see how many cases they have ordered....a little bit of effort on the part of the Traxxas Dealer Rep, but this will get you the car right away without some online promise that leads to you waiting forever for a vehicle

Default Video unboxing, running videos, heads up, and crash

Just got it today. Posted up an unboxing video followed by an overview of the specific TQi functions (burnout, stage, race). Got a local police officer to radar the car on 3s lipo and some heads up races. Sorry Nick for crashing you really bad! Pics coming soon.

+ YouTube Video

Here's a little tidbit that many of you probably did not know.
Before Graham Light became the director of competition for the NHRA, he and his kids were involved in RC drag racing back in the early 90s.

Just thought I'd share that.

I'm sure some of you may already be aware, but Tower has reduced the price of the Funny car to $300. I'm hoping this will encourage people that were on the fence to give the car a shot.

Yes, this is not a Tower Hobbies reduce in price only.....The new street price for the Funny cars is $299
The quad helicopter price has also changed from $99.99 to $69.99

That is just the default picture that shops are using on their web-pages.....there is only one part number, 6907...all of the body styles fall under that...if you want a particular driver, just be sure to ask for it.
