    Good to hear! On their website it even says they have Red ones in stock. Blue is still Late Dec. That blue must have been a popular choice haha.

    I ordered Blue and they called my phone yesterday and left message that they can only fill my order with the Red right now. Calling them back today to discuss. Probably will just go with red so I can enjoy this new truck over the holidays! BTYW, my preorder with them was on 12/1.

    Mine was blue they swapped to red and is currently being processed in warehouse for shipment.
    I placed order 12/4. I also ordered the Traxxas Charger & Battery combo but it's still shows late December. It's gonna be a bummer if they don't ship at the same time.

    Well that's good if you're December 4th date and its processing. I'm December 9th so I'm hoping for a email also.

    just checked my backorder and it says this

    Invoiced - Processing in Warehouse

    is this what you guys are seeing? I ordered any color to ship at random and its changed to the red one(which I wanted anyway). Gaining hope.

    ORDER NOW BEING PICKED AND PACKED IN WAREHOUSE/ORDER CAN NOT BE CANCELED
    Please allow a minimum of two business days for your order to ship (our shipping companies do not accept shipments on Saturday or Sunday)

    I'm hoping it ships out today lol

    Are you sure?? Anything I've ever gotten from tower has been UPS ground, and they don't deliver on weekends. It would sure be nice if tower would expedite shipping to get them to us by Christmas. I'm sure it wouldn't cost them much more. Hey they could use some of that e-cash that they saved by waiting until one day after the cutoff to ship our orders!

    It seems like everyone that was in the first batch was charged to their account

    Well from my years of experience with Tower...they always ship usps priority to my po box. Never seen ups from them. My po box doesn't accept ups deliveries so I'm sure.

    I never received a shipment notification, I had to go check my orders and see that they had put a tracking number on it. No idea if it actually left their building though.

    Tower have charged me $243.40 for 1 day shipping, I simply can't afford that. When I rang to ask it to be changed to 2 day (free on xmaxx) I got told it's difficult as it's been invoiced, try again tomorrow when the customer service people are in.

    That's what mine says as well. Ordered a blue Oct 30.

    Edit: we do get free 2 day shipping though. Hopefully they get them out today.

    I'm beginning to think there were twice as many pre-orders for the blue one than the red ones so the guys that pre-ordered blue ones are getting delays. I chose the "ship any color at random option" and tower chose the red one so that's why I think my order is going "smoothly". Just my thoughts.
