    I literally just sent them a message when it was 650 and i asked for money off, I knew it was already a good price but its always worth asking especially when spending such a large amount, it saved me 15 or so... So I'm happy Hopefully i should get the XMAXX in time for XMASS which would be nice.

    I have also just picked up 2 X 5000 mah traxxas 11.1V lipo batteries and a dual Ez-Peak, Cannot wait

    Fair play! I did think that, but my Girlfriend has paid for mine anyway


    Dread to think how much you paid for your Lipos and batteries however!!

    Ahaha awesome !,

    Lipos where 60 each, I would have loved the 8400mAh cells but couldn't justify 120 each, i will probably use the 5000mAh and replace them later on when they feel worn out.

    What batteries are you going to be using in yours ?

    What with the price change by over a ton? Are Modelsport just ripping the pee - that's almost dollar for pound matched price.

    I don't think there is anywhere cheeper in the UK currently, I just think as Traxxas is based in the US they get it at such a discount

    The Forum wont let me tell you what ones Ive bought, but Im not suprised at that if Traxxas are trying to charge 120 each. I got 4x 8400 3S Lipos, with Traxxas connectors, from the UK I paid 28 each I've also got 2x 6400mah 3S lipos with Traxxas Connectors I paid 23 each for.

    Yes model sport contacted me, It depends if your order was on the first or second shipment into the UK, Did you pay 649 or i think the second shipment is 739, if you paid the more expensive price then your order is due the expected 2nd of feb

    Im glad we are located 3 - 4 hours from Traxxas. Makes for fast next day deliveries. Sucks that you have to wait so long.

    But either way you will still love the truck.
