    Looks like first shipments have gone out!!!

    Well only 1 for now but this is a good sign. Tower still shows late May to even receive their stock from Traxxas

    I called my lhs yesterday. They said they have them in stock but can't sell them yet. They also said they only have red and blue because they didn't have any grey for the first run.

    I also wouldn't pay that price either. That's crazy to pay more than list price.

    The store owner pulled it off to the side for me, bought the bluetooth module and had one of his guys intall it and had already bought the J71 body and a Traxxas 7600mAh 2s from him last week for it.

    Mine was already on order for the store when I went in to put one on order for myself, it is basically one of their first ones in stock and sold.

    I guess each hobby store decides when to sell them. The Hobbytown closest to me won't let any go out the door. Preordered ones included. How ever the one a hour away has one on the shelf ready to be sold. Guess I'm just gonna have to wait lol. It's all good though because I want a grey one and all that is in stock are the red and blue ones.

    Unless those pre-ordered 4-Tecs were for customers like myself, I see no reason to keep them off the shelf or not sell them, unless they want to throw them on eBay to try and more money out of them.

    They said the ones they have are not but who knows. They do have some preordered. I'm surprised others are selling and they won't. Oh well not a big. I got one ordered online. It's gonna save me the aggravation of having to go get it by having it come to me. This would of been the fourth RC I bought from them this year but unfortunately they lost this sale.

    The only real problem I had getting mine is that Mom is temporarily on a nursing home 30-40minutes in the opposite direction as the HTU I bought from and since I've been getting off at 6pm the last few weeks, I've been going there to visit her after work instead of picking the car up. Yesterday finally gave me the chance since I was going in earlier in the day and then going to a model car club meeting even further north (takes me around an hour to get there from home) and could detour east to pick the car up on the way in.

    They don't come with batteries for some reason.

    I'm putting the VXL and a lipo in mine. I'm glad it didn't come with one as well. Keeps the cost down for some.
