    Imagine that.....December 24th

    Not bashing my buddies at Traxxas, but as always the projected delivery time of early December has just turned into the 24th. I could have made few bucks betting on the delayed delivery. So much for a KB Fiesta under the Xmas tree....

    No Spartan No KB Fiesta =

    Havok, I've got a few coming in..... you can't have it for free of course, but I'll work you a fair deal. Whatever the first one sells for on ebay I'll let you have mine for $20 less. Save my information, keep an eye ebay in the next few weeks and hit me back.

    Hello,

    HobbyTown in Colorado says they have been shipped and should be here this weekend 12/18. Most are spoken for already. They can't order more before Christmas, but soon after. I had one on hold and they called me to say it would be here this weekend and for me to pick it up.

    I can't wait...but proof is in the pudding. I'll followup later this weekend with results!

    Stay tuned!

    The saga continues! Argh!

    So, Friday I called HobbyTown to confirm that they were coming in. They said yes, they will be here tomorrow, Saturday. Please stop by (this is the store manager).

    Saturday morning after coaching my daughter's indoor soccer game, I took the family to HobbyTown, about a 1 hour drive away. They were packed. An assistant off the floor asks if I need help. I tell him, I'm here to pick up my Ken Block car. He laughs and says, those won't be in until late December or January. I told him I talked to the store manager and they are on the shipment that came in today. He says, "Really, OMG that would be awesome!". So he goes to the computer, puts in 7309 and sure enough, he confirms it was suppose to be there that day. He grabs the store manager, the manager said, they should be at the dock, but they haven't unloaded anything yet. The clerk tells me to wait. (20 or minutes - it felt like an eternity goes by) Then he comes out and says, we're opening boxes as fast as we can, goes into the back room again, this time leaving the door open (I hang out by the door so I can watch). They open up all the boxes, no Ken Block! What the heck! The manager gets on the phone and computer with UPS, turns out UPS only delivered 9 of 12 packages, next major delivery is scheduled for Wednesday.

    Manager comes out shaking his head, "I'm very sorry, we will call you on Wednesday to confirm they are in so you don't drive down here again and waste your time." "Shipments are on Saturdays and Wednesday." He then hands me a 5% off coupon for my troubles.

    Sorry guys, I was wanted to the pictures for all to see, but sounds like Wednesday is the day.
