    For Those of you that actually have one when did u preorder

    Like a lot of you on here I preordered a Platinum Slash from tower hobbies. What I wanna know is If you have received yours or one of the regular ones when did you preorder it? This will kinda give me a clue when mine may ship. I also wanna see if they ship them by when they were ordered or at random.

    I ordered mine from Tower on 12/26 and received # 47 RTR on 1/7. Tracked it from reno warehouse, which is a 6 hour drive from my house. The truck is very cool.

    Preordered RTR #25 on Nov 16 - preorder first showed Mid Dec, then late Dec. When it hit late Dec I complained, and without my permission they subsequently switched me to a generic RTR (any model) so that it "would ship faster". It didn't. It turned into Early Jan, then Mid Jan. When it went to mid-Jan I got fed up and cancelled; bought from Stormer instead which shipped the same day (Jan 6). I was very unimpressed with Tower.

    Tower has upset many people with this pre-order stuff, but I will stick with them as I have saved over 1000.00 with their discount codes! Not to include the free shipping!

    Well............ the 4th 5th and 6th were accidental orders thru Tower. When they told me they were sending out that many I figured, why not. 1 for me, 1 for the nephew, a spare for me to go MT style, one for spare parts. 2 to just look pretty in my garage.
