Default What happend at Traxxas??

I went to purchase my new truck tonight at a LHS, where they had 9 T-Maxx trucks last Friday. I saw them, but tonight they are sold out. I called around to several hobbie shops within driving range to ne avail
I looked online, even E-Bay for a NEW T-Maxx and no luck....

Anybody have a link or know of a reputable online shop where I can order one?
Thanks.

Mike L.

Thanks, I saw that one also, he said he wrecked it and has the new parts. I amfraid he did not break it in, and being new to nitro I do not feel comfortable "trusting" someone on ebay.

I have searched for over an hour, I did find one store upstate NY selling 1 for $569.00 BUt I would rather be able to get the serio PLUS the T-maxx for that money..

Still looking, man I should have jumped on the ones I saw last week.

No one says when they expect a shipment either, a week or so give or take is what I got from the LHS around here

The hunt continues.

Thanks for your help, ANYONE ELSE

Here is a good one 3134223546
I THINK ITS AN OLDER MAXX THOUGH
Says it has about 3-4 tanks run threw it starts everytime, and also comes with a nitro rustler. Just search and read on it.

The reserve has been met and it ends in 19+ hours. You will have to out bid other people.

Those are interesting, but I still hope to find a new one. What is it, Traxxas cant keep up with demand or is it they just halted production?

Thanks for your input.

Still hunting for a new......

Yes. 4 business days to ship from Fla. I even offered to pay the extra for overnight, but they would not accomodate me.
Oh well at least I am almost there...

Default I GOT EXTREMELY LUCKY

I was surfing the web just checking prices and I noticed that an on-line reatailer (omnimodels.com) had 3 left. I bought it on-line with out any problems, I went back to the sight one hour later and they were sold out. Now the only problem that I have is that I am stuck in Japan due to the current world situation. Being a Marine does have it's draw backs at times, but on the other hand my sons are being patient for my return. They have not opened the box since mid march. I hope that you will get your T-Maxx soon cause I know how you feel. Oh so close, but yet so far away.
