    Why is the Deegan Rally car listed as discontinued on Towerhobbies?

    Why is the Deegan Rally Car listed as discontinued on www.towerhobbies.com? It doesn't even say it's on backorder. What's up with that? http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXGPAE&P=ML

    That would be a question to ask Tower. They are not the say all/end all of what is to come, the manufacturer is. If you want to buy it you can go to Traxxas' site and purchase it.

    Also, why isn't there a separate section on the forums for the DEEGAN rally?

    I believe that the Deegan rally would fall under the category of "1/10 Rally".

    I would like to see a separate thread as some of the parts from the 1/10 rally don't fit the DEEGAN. That's like saying the new ford GT should be under the 4tec thread.

    OK here is Tower's VERY INTERESTING response to my email:

    Dear Tower Hobbies Customer,

    Thank you for contacting Tower Hobbies. While we carry many Traxxas items, we do not carry all of them. This may be because Traxxas has a target area for sales of a particular model or Tower Hobbies has something similar and decided not to have the two models competing for sale. WE apologize for the inconvenience this may cause.
    We appreciate your time and business with us.

    @Albie72, I know, right. I don't see why it would be discontinued since as you said, it's a new model. Oh well. I'm gonna get a Bigfoot #1 instead now.

    It's discontinued because right after they released it Deegan signed with monster instead of NOS

    Local hobby shop is only chance to get Deegan Rally car. I think TRX4 and Ford GT gonna be discontinued too. Because of licensed Ford and Landrover and looks like special edition. Better to get it quick before sold out and Ebay is gonna be your nightmare because of Ebay seller sells at high price.

    Tower hobbies from what I understand don't carry traxxas products anymore. And further more the deagan rally is the same chassis as the telleride.
