    Tower Hobbies Question

    I have never ordered a Truck from Tower. I tried to order a Slash for my son for Christmas and they didn't give me a color choice as he wanted the Rick Huseman one,so I bought it from Mark Twain Hobbies on Ebay. Now I want to order a Slash 4x4 for myself. Is there any way to pick the color of the truck as I don't want the same truck as my son and my friend has a Blue stock color Slayer, so I want a different color. Thanks

    Different numbers = different bodies.

    Odd, I just found the same thing. Yet the different colors have different stock numbers...

    How bout painting up a body yourself? It is fun and you can make it how you want. Bodies are like $30 and a can of paint may-be $5. That is always an option anyway.

    I think with the initial rush Tower will not know how many of which edition they will get in. After things settle down you will be able to pick your body but my guess that might be too late for Christmas. When I ordered mine a few weeks ago I was able to choose which edition to get but chose not to. I just checked the box that said whatever is available. Better to get one that is available than to wait for specific body at least for me Good luck
