    When you pre ordered, did you get any sort of idea where you sit on the list..?

    I have pre ordered from my LHS, and from what I can gather.. His list is small. However, his price is high.. $419 plus tax here in Nova Scotia, Canada. Besides that. the price keeps going up as the US CAN dollar rate changes. (I do have a promised $419 or lower price)

    I would order from Tower to get the truck cheaper, but I would be like # 1000000 on the list by now... so I guess I just Suck it up, buttercup

    Ordered from Tower to get the price. Don't know where I stand in line, but it doesn't really matter. Snow will hit any day now. I'll spend the winter in the shop getting it all ready and prob do a couple of mods. I run a DX3R and will prob put an xtra rx I have in it. I also run CC ESC's. Prob go that route for tuning via the link.

    yep, I pre-ordered also, and now I'm shopping for all the other goodies I want/need for it... Trouble is, I'll have all this "stuff" but no truck to use it in.
    Guess I have to run my other stuff more to make up for it... LOL

    Yeh, considering the snow factor, for that kind of savings, I think I'd change the order. Every little bit helps.

    The Tower Super Saver Program gives you coupon codes every month to use on orders. One of them is a spend $300+ and get $60 off.

    Yes, back ordered. I don't believe they have ever had any. Always a pre-order.

    I'm gonna wait until after Christmas and when all the hype dies out then I'll go pick it up at the LHS. I'm in no rush but I do want one.

    If tower knows how many people have pre ordered shouldnt they be able to order enough stock to fill those pre orders in a reasonable time frame?
