    best place to buy a new 'pede ?

    Hello

    finally, I made up my mind. After a week end with a friend and his revo, after spending 2 hours charging the Emaxx battery and driving just 15minutes, I'm ready to switch to the new 'pede.
    as I live in france, I'm looking for a great online hobbyshop (I already received every tower catalog ) with some decent shipping costs


    helpppp

    ebay, superhobby is the seller I bought mine from (superiorhobbies.com) $175 shipped (don't get the free batteries and charger, they're junk), best price I found and quick shipping.

    If he lives in Paris, I'd say his best bet is to buy it locally if possible. I'm not sure if there are any Traxxas dealers over there though.

    Why do you think it's gonna take longer to charge a battery for an e-maxx than a battery for a 'Pede? A battery's a battery

    If he charges the E-Maxx packs one at a time, it will take twice as long as it would to charge a single pack for the Pede.

    If I am unable to bring stuff back with me on trips to America I just buy from Tower Hobbies and pay the Value Added Tax (VAT). It is still cheaper than buying in a hobby shop here.

    well, I checked with a few model shop in paris
    answer went from "traxxas is, buy this kyosho ugly car" to "we don't know, come back next month".

    when I see that the Emaxx I bought 330 USD at tower in 2002 was sold at the same time 550 euros in paris, I guess the 'pede will be sold at least 300 euros
