    EREVO Ships--Not a joke or prank!

    I just got off the phone with Traxxas parts department. (Their customer service is FANTASTIC!)

    My last question for the rep was "when are the EREVO's going out the door?" His reply was that they are "going out the door as we speak."

    Now, I'm not guaranteeing HIS accuracy, but I have NO REASON to not tell the truth as I don't get off on pulling peoples' legs.

    So with that said, you would think that possibly, people could have them in their hands by the weekend, or early next week. If that is the case, the 15th is about right on. Wow. So when is the Products Page going to be updated with all the info we have been waiting for? Nice post pete!

    Ya, but whos door are they being shipped out of right now?? Remember it still needs to hit the states, go through customs, distributor, hobby store. Thats a bit of travel time. I do hope to see one up close and personal soon.

    WhoooHooo!

    I interpret "out the door" to be out of Traxxas' distribution center on the way to the retailer (online/lhs).

    Hehehe...wow, 7 posts in just under an hour! I guess you guys are as anxious as I am! I checked my Tower order just before calling Traxxas and it still showed "order pending." I just checked again and it still shows "order pending" and I placed my order for the black on April 25th! Calling Tower right now because it says "limited quantities" for the black!

    NOW...when is Castle going to get those MMM's and motor combos!!??

    It looks like only the A4 to me. Not sure where you saw all 4 are available.

    So, it would appear that because you're in TX, brushless, your order is coming from Champaign. Even though you placed your order after I did, it also goes by geographic region. Since my order needs to come from Reno and because only Champaign got a limited number ("not enough to fulfill all of the backorders"), I (we) have to wait until the next batch comes in. She also indicated that the "In Stock" will change to "Out of Stock" as soon as they update the webpage again.

    You may be the first one in America to get yours brushless! (At least I was the first to break the news...yeah! ) Make sure to post pics and write a review!! (It's the least you can do! LOL)

    You must have gotten it before they sold out of that color/freq. If you go to the A2 page now, it says "Order Pending".

    I just caved in and ordered last week. I picked the A4 randomly, as I didn't know what color was which (hadn't looked at the bottom of the page).

    Invoiced - Processing in warehouse -- woohoo.

    Yeah they must've sold out fast. I was just looking to change my order to the red/black when I realized that is what I ordered. When I was looking all 4 appeared in stock.

    Hmmm, well, if you just ordered last week and yours is shipping, then the customer svc rep at Tower must have been wrong when she said "there's not enough in stock to cover the backorders." I bet she was referring to ALL colors. Perhaps there are enough of the A4 trucks to cover the backorders.

    My order page on Towerhobbies.com customer info page says "Bill Me Later® will contact you for payment after your order ships." and I got en email from the Bill Me Later folks this morning. I take that to mean it's already shipped....I hope so at least. Apparently mine is red, too. Anyone know if there are any aftermarket bodies being produced yet?

    Yeah, maybe red isn't popular. Hooray for my lucky random choice if that's the case.

    Yup, me too.... just got off the phone with Tower Hobbies, she told me that the revo's are there in stock and they're sorting through them now. She said it would be shipped no later than Friday.

    Of course, I'll be on a Disney cruise with my family all week but she'll be here when I get back. AND THE BOX HAD BETTER STILL BE SEALED....LOL.

    I ordered batteries from SPC but they're still 7-10 days out (he ran out of cells for a bit), so I'll probably end up getting a matching pack for one of my 'not as nice' packs so I can get 'er goin! Silly impatience.

    That's not all bad considering Mid-June is 4 days away.

    The guy you spoke to was correct. My traxxas direct rep told me that the rest of my slashes and my Erevos shipped this past Monday. They usually ship right out of long beach and dont go to traxxas in Plano to save time

    Wish I could be excited too, but I can't find my wallet for my credit card number so I used bill me and was turned down. So I called my CC company to try and get a temp number and they canceled the card and are sending me a new one.
