    traxxas didn't expect this!

    Heard from my guy who deals direct with traxxas and was told they presold more xmaxx's than anticipated. And they are only able to send out half of the orders on the first shipment..depending on how early you made your order sounds like some maybe waiting till after 1st of the year.

    I think a second shipment might be going out on the 23rd or so.. so with the holiday that would put it even longer in shipment...wish that traxxas had released xmaxx late November....can't wait to run this beast!!

    The UK market now has an expecteed delivery of 11th Jan. I ordered one of the first from the biggest UK Modelshop.

    I will be annoyed if I find out the UK market have been shunted back, to accomodate the US pre orders. Although i wouldn't be suprised.

    Traxxas are VERY luck the Savage Flux XL isnt announced yet Id be tempted to cancel my pre order for one. I want it or Xmas.

    How is one to know if their product is going to be such a hit? A company has to predict the response and then shell out the thousands to millions of dollars for manufacturing and wait for the money to come back hoping it will be profitable. People will complain either way: either moan they don't like it and was hoping for something else and the inventory balloons or we love it and inventory is depleted. Traxxas is not the only company this happens to.

    Apple would be a fine example of this would you not agree? Have this problem every few months as they release some new product. Finding that balance is nearly impossible nowadays it seems. I sure hope though that the orders start coming through. I'm looking forward to all the great videos and mods people will wind up with
    Just can't get enough....

    I heard about that... It's something like only the shops that ordered them within the first 2-3 days after the release get rights to the first shippment, or if they're expecting 8, they'll get 4, etc. It doesn't surprise me that they sold out honestly.
    Is owning 27 RC's too many? No way!

    It'll be interesting to see how this ends up working, I think my shop has over 20 on order and we have a bunch of preorders on them to boot!

    for me, living in the Netherlands, it's no point in calling Traxxas... I was told the boat had a delay and unloading that ship also was delayed.... probably until January .. .not much I can do about it... pity though that the overseas pre-orders are not delivered before Xmass

    Just got off the phone with them and they said they are sending them out as they get them. They could not tell me when or if mine had been sent out. The hobby shop would have to call them. I will call the HS when they open and get an update.

    Let me know what you find out, this is going to be a Christmas present for my son so I'm hoping I get it in time. I'm located in Pennsylvania so I'm not sure how many days it will take to ship to my location.

    The guy I spoke with at traxxas acted like they were on time with delivery, he even said they have a bunch sitting there if I wanted one. I hope he wasn't just blowing smoke up my butt!

    Same. My Traxxas rep said the same thing. We'll see if the weather permits to keep everything in line...

    Awesome! I hope my order comes in before Christmas. Those of you that ordered from Tower, when did you order? I pre-ordered mine on Nov. 6th. Just wondering if I was late to the game or not.

    Thanks!

    Did anyone else order from RC Superstore? I haven't seen any mention of them on the forum, but that's where I ordered mine from. I talked to them last week and they said Traxxas had shipped their order out as well and they expected them in this week

    quadruple ouch...9 Dec for me. I was just going to order when it came in stock but after seeing that the buzz is growing strong and rumors of it selling out I decided to pre-order. I probably should have been preordered it.
