    whether its late Aug or late Sept or even Jan 1 im still going to get one traxxas makes very nice machines and i will wait for them to fix the problem. i will get mine for close to 300 thru tower so you cant beat that price $60 off any order of $300 or more and $15 tower hobbies store credit when i ordered my ax10 this past winter. i might even wait to see if the price drops then i will order it with 2 bigger batteries and get $80 or $100 off the order.

    I was hoping it would be released on time so ppl could post the best setup etc.. I want one but limited funds are holding me back atm.

    I was planning on getting some 2s *****s for my summit, they will be a good set to learn how to not capsize this bad boy. I'm sure 3s will be hard to control with no experience.

    Sorry for the bad topic... and sad to say but I did cancel my order. I still tip my hat to Traxxas for pushing the release date rather than let all us customers come upon a faulty product and cause more harm in the future. ANYWAY I got a yellow Summit instead so when i do get my Titan I will have a proper truck to tow it

    Thanks Traxxas for being so addicting... haha

    Is it a rule that all new members DONT read the rules or something? Nitro Chicken is the boss... and the rules clearly state that bashing traxxas, its employees or its products is not allowed... those are the rules, like them or not. Breaking the rules means nitro chicken has to remind everyone of what they are as he did in his post.

    Are ANY of us happy about having to wait? No! Would it be better for traxxas to NOT release a product until its ready for sale (fully tested)... my opinion is that yes, it would be better to have no more than a 30 day gap between releasing and shipping product. That way, if a problem does arise, you dont have people who have already waited months, now having to wait longer. BUT... this isnt how traxxas chooses to do it, and this is a traxxas forum run by traxxas employees and hosted by traxxas... so guess what... we follow the traxxas rules here.

    ^^^ Hey pavment, you're really passionate about this whole situation/reactions huh...anywho...just wanted to clarify something...you keep mentioning that 'Nitro Chicken' is the boss...well he's not the only 'boss' around here. There's arceeguy, carraig042, hoovdog, ksb51rl, Misbehavin' and cooleocool, just to name a few.

    Oh yeah, I understand that... but like in any company that has multiple bosses... hes one of them. I just know that I got in trouble as a new user for being mouthy and arguing with the Mods... I also have come to understand the importance of everyone following the same set of rules. It bothers me that some people feel the rules dont apply to them. After spending alot of time on many RC forums I like the fact that things stay respectful and under control here. I want that to continue. Im as disappointed as anyone about a delay in the Titan... I live on a lake and its always calm. But thats no reason to circumvent the rules.

    The almighty chicken is the head boss... the king of the roost, if you will.

    I'm just a volunteer who helps to enforce the rules.

    At any rate, I'm leaving that post by Tana for NC to deal with...

    Please re read what you quoted. Your post is completely out of context and has little to no bearing on the subject. Were you trying to quote something else? One word about personal attacks. Donít. I am sorry if that is not clear enough but I canít make it any clearer. If you do not understand why you should receive points for that then I suggest not posting at all until you have taken the time to read through the forum rules. You agreed to them and we do enforce them.

    If anyone that will be frozen in by ice, you can send your boat to me and I will test it for you, and send pics and vid. I can do pool, lake, or ocean...
    Yes living in FL has it's benefits... LOL

    I really don't understand why people get so upset over simple posts. Some of you are just a bunch of cry babies. Boo Hoo, it is delayed, Boo Hoo, Nitro Chicken hurt my feelings because I read too much into what his SIMPLE point. May I suggest that you whiners GROW UP ? If you didn't catch the sarcasm of Nitro Chicken, well too bad, get over it. I've been around here for a long time, and Nitro's post was just fine for any reasonably competent person, who can read sarcasm, and some humor into a comment. If you can't handle the mental torment of Nitro Chicken, please go to another forum, where someone will give you happy happy joy joy comments... GAWD... pathetic...

    Now it will be interesting to see if the whiners will now cry the BT is a big meany, he hurt my feelings, he is ganging up with Nitro Chicken and Cooleo and KSB ...

    Here are my top 3 suggestions.
    1. Deal with it.
    2. Leave what is really the most polite, best behaved forum around.
    3. See #1.

    Davidb, from the very beginning of this thread it is clear that you have been taking it as a personal insult or attack on your self. I have also clearly stated otherwise. The thread was not about you nor was my post directed at you. With your continued posts, all of which clearly display your discontent, it is becoming about you. This post in particular is pointed directly at you. Leave it alone. Post in a different thread and be happy. Making positive posts in this thread has so far been beyond your willpower or ability. I am sorry if I touched a sensitive spot with you. On the other hand if the shoe fits wear it.
    This thread serves a valid purpose. Do not try to re-direct it or make it about something it is not. This is my first and only post on the subject and if you can take a gentle hint you will easily avoid the issues involved with pursuing an untenable agenda on our message board.

    my 1. was I got over the Titan delay because this stuff happens and I'm a big boy
    my 2. was I bought a Rio 51z with the Titan cash
    my 3. is I will still buy a Traxxas Titan when they come available because I think for the price of this hull for what it comes with is a killer deal!

    Film,
    You are amazing ! You decided you didn't want to wait, and you did something about it, and got another boat in the mean time, rather than crying about it on the boards!

    I think Nitro Chicken should give you a Gold Star for the day for being so reasonable. :-)

    While it is a crying shame that the Titan got delayed, it isn't the end of the world. Sure, some people where winter hits and makes boating less appealing may be affected by this but it isn't like summer and nice weather won't come around again.

    Could everyone imagine the outrage if Traxxas actually shipped the boat with a pretty big bug? I would be glad that they didn't send me a defective product.


    davidb: Just let it go. There's no use getting upset or saying things that'll result in you getting points on your account. It's just a RC boat and Traxxas is doing what they felt is best for the customers.



    All that said, I really am curious what the actual bug is that they ran into. I'm leaning towards an issue with the VXL-6s. By saying "bug" it makes me think software/programming bug.

    millerdui,
    There are no updates, Traxxas does not have an official release date yet. Yet for some reason many people have decided to have hissy fits, and cry about it. Traxxas is vey tight lipped on releasing any OFFICIAL info.

    The real info is located here :

    http://www.traxxas.com/email_subscription/profile.php

    http://www.traxxas.com/products/mari...5708_titan.htm




    AVAILABLE SEPTEMBER 2010
    Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Titan availability date has been moved from July to September 2010. We know you are counting on Traxxas to give you the fastest, most powerful, and most reliable boat possible; and we needed a little extra time to make sure the Titan meets those expectations. We know summer is going by fast and offer our sincerest apology for the delay. We think in the end though, your wait will be rewarded with a truly fantastic level of performance that’s unlike anything else on the water.

    ....now there isn't even an ad for the Boat on the Homepage anymore
    We are going on our 10th week after the original release date and not a single email update.

    Yeah I noticed that boat has been replaced with 1:1 racing news on the front page. I would just consider this boat for Spring of 2011. Unless you live in the south like me, and can use a boat year round... :-)

    i don't know of anyone that doesn't beat the heck out of traxxas products and they hold up beyond most expectations. TRX have made their name in the "tough" r/c vehicles class. They can't release a product that may not hold up to veteran traxxas consumer's expectations. I can wait.!

    I am actually still hoping that Traxxas staff took a read on one of my earlier post, saw that I had some valid points and decided to make the hull upgradeable to nitro use being that with nitro you could run back to back to back 10 minute nitro runs. Plus if the boat performs well you could easily win over at least 2 or 300 (5% to 10% of the racing market) of the 3 to 4000 boat "RACERS" that would inadvertently end up demonstrating the Traxxas craft at 4 times a day approximately 10 times a year each with high concentration near waterways (the highest concentration of customers for this product) across the country. That's promotion that's much cheaper and a more direct marketing approach than placing ads in R/C Car Magazines. But then again I can see them jumping into the full size SuperBoat Series with a full size version of their own to promote this boat just like they did the Short Track Trucks. But that's an even more expensive marketing endeavor unless they own the series the same way to recoup.

    Anyway...

    I'd surely be willing to replace my 3 time National Champion Aeromarine with this one for the 2011 National Championship in LA next summer.
