    $349 for a New Slash 4x4...Good Deal?

    HP has the Slash 4x4 (no battery) for $349.99 until midnight tomorrow (online or in-store). What does everybody think of this price? So, far this appears to be the best price out there.

    It sounds like a good deal, I'd go for it.
    Is owning 27 RC's too many? No way!

    Thanks @epic and @Wolf. That's what I figured...I won't need any batteries either since I have all my Maxx batteries. Decisions, decisions...

    Get a used one. Got mine on eBay for 302 shipped. That was ready to run with a seven cell, traxxas ESC fan, and an over tray

    IMO, I think only $50 more is worth it to get a new one.

    I got a deal. Also came with a t bone servo saver. It looked brand new when I got it. I was amazed. The body was mint. $350 for brand new is a great deal though.

    I didn't even think about Tower Hobbies. You can get a brand new Ultimate Edition for $470.00. That might be the better bet for your money. $350 for a new truck is a great price!

    Coupon codes for tower <- Link
    My tower email has a $65 off $400 ( yes Im a member)
    But code 011R5 should take off $50 off $400. Even for non members I believe.
    Looks like with Lipo its $465 normal price.
    So $400 member price
    $415 non member

    Then you have the nimh version $410
    Member price $345
    Non member $360

    OK...I DID IT! In fact, I got an additional $30 off (using the Hobby People coupon code of HP30OFF) for a total price of $319.99. Now, what do you think? A great, great deal? Thanks, guys!

    349.00 is a darn good price considering no battery is included. I'd jump on that if I didnt already have a Slash 4x4.

    Well, my new toy (for $319.99) arrived in 2 days. It's like Cracker Jack (for those of you old enough)...I got the Scott Douglas edition. http://s761.photobucket.com/profile.php?do=editpassword/dar...4bc3.jpeg.html
