Default Well finally bit bullet and ordered from Tower Hobbies!

First R/C purchase since late 80's This is actually an xmas present for my girlfriend. yes believe it or not one of the things she wanted was an R/C car....she said she always liked them. Granted she meant just a basic one you get in a store probably, but I wanted to do a little better than that and get a good quality recreational R/C setup for use in the backyard (grass) and probably parks and some street use. Here is what I got:

Traxxas Stampede XL-5 RTR A5 1 170.99

RPM Front Bearing Carriers Rustler/Stampede 1 8.59
RPM Rear Bearing Carriers Rustler/Stampede 1 8.59
DuraTrax Bearing 5x11mm Stainless (10) 1 14.99
MRC Super Brain 977 Charger 1 95.99
Tower Hobbies #1 Tower SS Club Pack-C 1 14.99
$30 Promotional Discount 1 -30.00
Tower Promo R/C Car Action (3 Free) 1 - .00
SHIPPING AND PAYMENT
In-Stock Items: $290.83
Shipping charge reflects Tower Hobbies #1 Super Saver Club discount - a savings of $8.99
Standard Shipping: Waived
Subtotal amount reflects in-stock items only Subtotal: $290.83

Total Current Charges: $290.83

PS-Thanks for everyones help in my research.

Thats not all I am giving her, just one of the things. Yeah most women would not want this for xmas but my girlfriend likes them and specifically named it as one of the things she would want. She's pretty cool like that. She likes football too
