    Is pricing different in Indonesia? I doubt it, there is some loophole.

    No, that price is in USD. Total comes to $305. They want a bank/wire tranfer though. A little skeptical.

    can u post a link to the other thread?*EDIT* NM I found it. http://monster.traxxas.com/showthread.php?t=440688

    I saw this like two months ago. I was floored, then I went to order and it just felt too sketchy to me...something seems weird. I felt it was either a scam, or a matter of time before they lose their affiliation by ignoring MAP pricing.

    Interested to see if anyone has used them tho.

    If it is too good to be true, it usually is. It ask for Telegraphic Transfer. Bank Wire Transfer and would not accept another form of payment. Usually that is an indication of scam. Anyway it would be interesting to see if someone has tried it and actually got any thing form them.

    well I hit continue to check the price with shipping and it linked me to an invoice saying I ordered it, I don't know how they could though, as I did not give them any info other than my address.

    If I get a big package in a few weeks I sure as heck am not paying them anything, because I never even ordered it!

    Yeah, I didn't pay anything. All they have is my name and address. I mean unless they send me a bill or something, I don't think they have any way of saying that I actually purchased the thing.

    I think it's pretty unlikely that anything will turn up!!!
    (But even if you had to pay them the advertised price, you could make it back on ebay in seconds...)

    Frankly the whole thing seems very dubious... bank transfer indeed! 'Cos they don't have credit cards there, right? I have to admit that the website is very thorough for a scam, but as someone above said, if something is really too good to be true, then ... it isn't true.

    [sigh - would've liked another truck... ]

    Well, only thing i can think of is if the site will track previous orders and somehow find your credit card number from somewhere else. No idea but whatever it is im not buying from them.

    I can't find anyone who has ordered from them on some of the bigger forums:

    http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_7935679/tm.htm

    http://www.rcnitrotalk.com/forum//sh...d.php?p=616494

    I had a similar experience with a super discount online seller and found out they sell the item without a major component (like the chassis) but are willing to sell the chassis for something like 200 USD more.

    The payato.com shop isn't even listed on the reseller ratings site to check if legit. See:

    http://www.resellerratings.com/resel...rd_search=paya

    Bottom line:

    If something is too good to be true...

    I wish someone would try it and buy the cheapest item on the site (Which is an airplane for $54) to see if they are legit or not. If they are, then I would grab that E-Revo faster than you can blink. (That's pretty fast huh? )

    well i just emailed them i might be the gimmie pig to buy this off them if they respond i probably buy it and hope for the best. most of the time when you see these things online you order it and then you get an email that says order canceled and sorry about the inconvenience i once say a $1000 dollar tv for $439 tried to order it and that is what happen but then again i ordered my losi 8t for 300 when its cost new is 599 so i guess i got lucky lets try for a second time!

    LOL Rhino, you won't be getting squat from Indonesia. That is the filthiest pig of a country thats just smothered with con artists. I had a buddy fall for the too good to be true deal from that same company, they took a few hundred from him via money gram or something like that. Needless to say he didn't get his truck, he did get a phone call saying HAHA thanks for the cash sucker!

    That was the best part about it, I told him not to send the guy cash, but he got greedy and thought he scoring big time. The guy call him up the very next day and in his thick Indonesian accent, says, "Thank you very much for the money, you big sucka!" I'm still laughin' at him when you talks about being broke.
