    the release date is going to be closer to late march. when they say in stores early march they are talking about shop demo/display units. (they ship out one to every shop that ordered it) the retail units are going to ship 2-3 weeks after the first unit

    Just noticed the Traxxas website states Mid-April instead of early March, bummer.

    Your LHS will likely have the trucks before Traxxas.com, check with your dealer to see when they're expecting them.

    The mid-April date is just the Traxxas.com pre-order ship date.
    Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.

    what traxxas listed before was in stores early march. traxxas still has march 9th as the ship date of the 1st batch(they are demo/display trucks) the 2nd batch should ship 2 weeks after the 1st batch. and traxxas said they won't sell the trucks untill 2 weeks after dealers get their trucks for retail (2nd batch). so nothing has really changed

    Contacted great hobbies regarding my order placed on febuary 15th. They said their supplier should get the trucks in on the 16th of march and they should have them in stores about a week after that.

    i would be surprised if that is when they actually get them. we ordered ours directly from traxxas around 2 weeks before the toyfair. the toyfair is when traxxas announced the udr. but the date we our getting right now is the 9th but that is going to be the demo unit. the retail units are not going to be in till around the end of the month. we talked to a dealer sales rep at traxxas a couple of days ago that is where i am getting my info
