Default TRAXXAS SPARTAN PURCHASE???

Thinking about buying a spartan boat. My local traxxas dealer here in northern michagin is having a hard time puting his hands on one. I can't help asking my self, is it the dealer or traxxas not providing the product? At this point in time I would like to support my local dealer and traxxas. Not long and the lakes will be free of ice, I'll be looking to get my game on.(WHAT THE HELL)

My hobby shop got one in, lucky enough they called me when it came in and asked if I wanted dibs before they put it on the shelf.

A few minutes later I was the proud new owner of the only one in my town

My friend has one on order, but they have no idea when it'll come.

I think we've had one or two out this way, but they were backordered as soon as there was a part number. My guess is if the dealer didn't back order it back when it had a different name, it may be a bit before they see one.

My local hobby shop has a blue one on the shelf right now. They sold a red one a few weeks back, and it smoked the ESC after 2 runs on 6s. They sent out a new ESC and it seemed to run good this weekend.
