no offence but i think that is a realy bad idea. selling them at walmart will give traxxas a bad image. stuff sold there is not usually held in high regards. take mongoose bikes for instance. these used to be good quailty bikes sold at bike shops. then they were bought by another company which made them in the same quality but lowered the prices and started selling them at bradlees and walmarts, ect. imidetly there image of being good bikes was ruined and noone wanting a nice bike will get one. i mean when someone asks u where u got ur car do u want to say tower and have them think its a real rc or walmart and have them think its a toy?

I totally agree with bandit boy. Where would wal-mart put them... In the TOY section. Traxxas products are not toys.

Wal-Mart's return policy is great for consumers but a curse on manufacturers. When you buy something there, use it, and decide you don't like it, you can take it back and they will happily refund your money. What do you think happens to that product? It gets sent back to the manufacturer and they are forced to give Wal Mart their money back on it. Since Wal-Mart offers no service or repair after the sale, they would give people their money back for anything, even if the car was trashed by the owner. People are way to willing to abuse return policies to the point that it's almost like renting the products for free. Take it home, use it until it breaks, and then return it. We don't want any part of that. If you don't allow Wal-Mart to return merchandise to you, they won't sell it in their stores. Think about that the next time you see somebody taking advantage of a stores's return policy. In the end everybody pays for that in higher prices, raised by the manufacturer to recover the losses from the returned merchandise.

i think it will also make the hobby of r/c really dull cuz like everyone will have an r/c car or truck. like all the aduts and children on my street are friendly to me cuz the t-maxx is soo cool. however i would acctually like some competition in my neighborhood other than myself.

The return problem.When I first started in r/c I had a tyco hopper, I would run the **** out of it. In the water, dirt,mud ect. When it died I washed it off and took it back for a new one. No questions. I did it like 3 times then they got wise. When your ready to step up buy a kit,put it together yourself then you know how hard it was and you really take pride in your ride and it makes everyone else want one too. Your local hobby place,not the dime store...

I use and abuse my rc's /T-maxx/1/8th scale buggies and all my other rides,Its just that much more fun running them hard and rebuilding stuff.May be its just me but my rc's stay together really good because for the most part Ive rebuilt them that way.Ha ha.
If it dont go fast then I dont want it

I could not agree more I am the bad boy on the block when I have that car all of the lil kids look up to me.Yes I do want some comptition but i dont want every kid on the block to have one and little kids will be geting hurt all the time because their parent let them play with it alone that could still happen but not to many little kids have them but if they were at wal-mart they would. Now hop-ups maybe but you would have to go to the gun section to buy them and they could not display them ahh what the heck just don't sell them at all. http://www.traxxas.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif http://www.traxxas.com/ubb/mad.gif http://www.traxxas.com/ubb/mad.gif http://www.traxxas.com/ubb/mad.gif http://www.traxxas.com/ubb/mad.gif http://www.traxxas.com/ubb/mad.gif http://www.traxxas.com/ubb/frown.gif
