    I originally pre-ordered from Tower, then decided to support my local hobby store instead.

    My LHS thinks they can get them to their customers before the large online retailers can, but that is probably his way of convincing me to buy local

    That's true, IF you order from Traxxas Direct. My hobby shop ordered 8 of them directly from Traxxas, and they gave us a expected date of December 5th to the 10th. So I should have mine in my hands and driving by the 11th.

    I have one pre-ordered from the LHS I work at, so yes I"m excited.

    Some guys here work at hobby shops so they get employee discount. That might be the case just speculating.

    Yea close friend of mine works at lhs huge discounts are made when he purchases vehicles. I'm pretty sure he gets like 25% off about everything.

    That's it? I get things at cost plus 5% to cover shipping... Which can be great sometimes, but honestly there's small markup in most things, like 10% max.
    It all varies per every hobby shop.

    You got lucky, I thought that traxxas wasn't allowing hobby shops to sell their items under the MAP, in this case $799.00

    They're not supposed to. It's not going to stop everyone though, I've seen cheaper than MAP on Amazon, although those don't stay for long...


    Anyway, let's not make this about the MAP changes please.

    Sometimes you just have to ask. You'd be surprised what some LH stores can do for you (obviously not all of the them).
