I'm banking on it going down by about $80-$100 4 months after it launches. This segment is just too competitive. If you look at the Kyosho Mad Force kit, it's dropped $100 from it's price tag in the last year.

We can only speculate on that. Honestly it depends on sales. At launch, even at 600 dollars its a way better value than any other truck out there. It still has to prove quality though. It might drop 40-60 bucks, but i dont see them dropping a whole lot. It comes with a synth radio, metal geared servos, and an RX pack. I think its a great deal at 560.

I'm 15 and tried to start a mowing business but it didn't work out. Try cutting relatives lawns or the old people lawns in your neighborhood. I'm up to 250$ in the last 2 months. I usually charge 10 dollars for a small lawn but i have friends who have done lawns for 50$. You don't have to start a business. Just ask a neighbor. I just asked a landlord and he owns 2 buildings right in my neighborhood. Thats an extra 20$ a week. I never go below 10$ although. Try to ask a price that is fair. Don't rip yourself off and don't go so high that they say no.

im 27 now but "in my day" i would offer to mow the front lawn for a buck. then was told by my dad that i had to at least ask for 5. i guess a buck a lawn wasn't paying for the gas! but then again i think i was about 11 of 12 at that time. now i'm mowing the lawn for free to get some cash from my wife....ironic.
