    Who has one pre-ordered?

    Hey guys, I've seen a few people that have pre ordered a TRX-4, and or pre paid for one, but they've all been in different threads, so I figured I would group everyone into one new thread.

    So that brings me to my question; who has either pre paid for one, or pre ordered one? Both?
    I pre paid and pre ordered a red one today at my LHS, and I gotta say, paying the price kinda hurt. Although it should be completely worth it. I can't wait to get mine...

    I'm getting mine from my LHS, and we should have at least a few of each color coming in.

    Have sold off a few things from the dusty part of the hobby collection to fund this one.

    I called up my LHS to see if they were slated to get one as they are a very small store. They had to actually call in and find out as they weren't really sure. They said they are getting one and I put a down payment on it. So whenever it shows up its mine lol. I dont care about color so didn't bother asking which one was showing up.

    That's what I am considering also, ever since I seen the TRX-4 initial news!

    I tried at my LHS and they could not find any thing to pre order from Traxxas. I'm going to try a different store today. I wondered about the different colors. Does anyone know what the color options are.

    The official color options are red, and gunmetal so far unless Traxxas drops some surprise colors.

    I can't yet find a hobby shop anywhere in Canada, including local hobby shop, to take a pre order.

    I am looking forward to the TRX-4, as it will be my first true crawler, despite my respectful attempts and transforming an xmaxx and Slash 4x4 into trail crawlers with good results for what they are.

    Went to a different LHS and pre ordered the red (maroon) colored one. they said the display one is coming on the 8th and for sale ones a couple weeks later.

    Interesting note - the LHS is ordering directly from Traxxas, His Horizon and Great Plains Wholesalers are not involved. I wonder if Traxxas is going more direct to the hobby shops and cutting out the middle guys or maybe its just a temporary move to give the little guys a head start. Either way it should be fun to check out a new toy.

    I pre ordered as soon as I checked my Instagram and RPP Hobby said they were taking pre-orders. Paid for. Now I'm just doing the waiting game. RPP let me enter in the notes which color wanted over the two (Red,Gunmetal) I went with the Gunmetal. Hopefully I have mine before the end of the month.

    Thanks. Been a customer of great hobbies for a while, they are great!

    They only had pre-orders starting today for the TRX-4......

    And guess who's #1 on the pre order list for a RED ONE!

    Oh yeah!

    Hi to all, I've placed my order too.
    Waiting it in Europe from an Austrian dealer. Hope it will came in gray as per my reqest!
    The feeling is that TRX-4 is the most complete scaler platfom about tech spec.
    After the conversion of a e-revo 1:16 into a scaler I really wish to get the new toy!

    Yikes man !!! That sucks, who is this person marking up prices? What the **** is wrong with him, Is is in it to make money and rip people off or to help fellow RC peeps get into the hobby and help them enjoy the hobby. Sounds like he is a stiffler.

    Don't know what came over me, but I switched to charcoal gray from red on my pre order.

    I haven't seen the demo at my LHS, or any other LHS that I know of so far.

    Time will tell though, they could be waiting until they build up enough supply to send out full orders...

    Hey everyone, I'm new around here. You will be seeing quite a bit of me in the future!

    Just spoke with my LHS, his pre-sale model of the TRX4 is shipping tomorrow and should be here early next week. Apparently there were some licensing issues that held things up. But it all seems to be good now. Still no word on the actual release date of the truck but nonetheless I'm excited to get my hands on it next week.

    The guy from my LHS said that too about the licensing thing. So hopefully thats all figured out. Cant wait till they get theirs and I can play with it lol. Nobody there does the crawling stuff so it will be a new venture for them.

    Grrrr.....

    Man I hope this doesn't become the 4-Tec all over again, advertised for release in Mid-Feb, and doesn't start shipping until May. Tower Hobbies said late May, now they are saying early June. Come on Traxxas, you are not build anticipation by doing this, just annoyance.
