    Ordered from Tower...got a question

    So I am a newb to electric RC. I have always had nitro and just purchased another T-Maxx 3.3 a week ago. But anyways, I went ahead and ordered a RTR slash 4x4 from Tower on 1/10/10. I am just trying to get an idea of what "order pending" in the status of my order means as in time length. I would appreciate it guys. I am sure you will be seeing me here alot considering I have no clue about electric...

    In Tower's terms, Order Pending means they have an order in with Traxxas but don't have an ETA yet. They seem to be getting caught up now, so I'd guess 10 days to 2 weeks.
    Traxxas racing!

    You'll love it man, I used to own a T-Maxx about 8 years ago and this thing is 10x better! Though it was the original T-Maxx which was under powered and had shorter A-Arms. Worst of all though was that I lived in area which the elevation was about 7500ft and you lost a LOT of power!

    Anyways, nice job on making the right decision!

    okay so the stock status changed from Mid Jan yesterday to On Order today....what is the deal? I would just like to get at least a decent timeline so I can be expecting it.

    Not RTR- I haven't been able to break in my new Maxx because it has been in the 15-25 degree range here. But I loved all of my old ones. I'm sure I will love this new 3.3 along with my Slash 4x4, if it even gets here...

    yea, it just sucks when they keep changing it. I guess it will get here when it gets here...who knows though.

    On another note, will the Thunder AC6 charger be good for me? I do plan on eventually going LiPo.

    the standard 4x4 is FINALLY back in stock now at tower, so everyone who has been waiting for it should be getting it soon now. PE is still not though...

    So why not cancel your order and buy it somewhere else? My guess is because it was quite a bit cheaper at tower. I guess you need to decide how badly you want it now.

    Tower is the bigger merchant, but that also means they have far more people on the list that needs to be filled when they get in. Not only is tower popular but their prices with the coupon were by far the cheapest. All that means is a lot of people on the list. Its just where you fit on that list, nothing they can do about it.
    Slash PE, Slash 2wd, E-revo BE soon

    Thunder AC6 charger looks pretty sweet to me since its an AC/DC charger. however, keep in mind, you wont be able to charge any lipo thats above 5000mah at 1C since its max output is at 5A... other than that, it looks good and the price is good too!

    okay.....is there a charger that you would recommend for me so that I can use lipos above 5000mah? I need an AC/DC so that I can charge in the house by the way.
