These guys have the best prices that I have seen on the net.

I know that Rc nuts hobbies offers to beat any price on the net as well. So if I were you I would contact rc nuts and show them the link I posted for you.
Good luck
Other option is to wait for the HPI buggy to come out. I have a FG MT5 but I am also buying the HPI Baja

Since you are in the US, I would also suggest the HPI Baja. Alot depends on what type of driving you want to do. Tell us what you like to do with them,a nd we can give you a better idea of each vehicle.

Since he wants it "soon" probably best to buy a RC car that's already well proven with a good user base, rather than one of the first Baja purchasers. It could flop and/or having design flaws so probably best to wait 1 year after it's released and see how it is. Considering it's not even out yet and supposedly going to be delayed he's in for a long wait.

ps Baja price has now risen to £774 (was £700) []
