    Best price...

    Anyone else notice Amain hobbies has the Titan for $364.99. Thats a great price. It doesnt beat tower with a discount but its still a good starting point.

    I just got $10 more off the tower price. I guess if you put in your order at the beginning and had it in your backorder cart they would give you $10 more off. I also get my big gold club discount. Anyone find it cheaper anywhere else?

    oh PSurfer...... always looking for that smokin' deal. I don't think another Shop can touch that 20% off with the gold club discount. For instance, I'm picking up another Ultimate 4x4 Slash for $388 shipped (after I drop $15 on somthing else) Cheapest I've seen from anyone else is $460

    Let's hope not.

    As I already think traxxas should have released this boat 2 months ago,as summer is already started and I would like to play with a boat NOW.

    Where did this word come from and is there any further word on why? Man, I dont know how much longer I can wait. If it takes too long the summer will be over, the ice will be on the lake and I wont need a boat.

    Sigh... Delay? Sounds like the PE....

    Why does this happen on all new Traxxas machines?
    PLEASE do not PM me and immediately go offline :p

    Next time traxxas releases a brand new rc they keep it too them selfs till the day they actually can deliver it and have good stock on it.

    Now most of us are tortured for a few months with some new rc stuff that isn't for sale yet.

    I'm curious too, where did this word come from??

    This reminds me of the year I bought my real boat, the longest year in history we had ice on the lake!

    Uhhh... yeah... thats just too long for me. I ordered mine from tower and their backorder date still says late july (not that im doubting horizon) so ill keep the back order until the date changes. But if it does change to september im going to have to seriously re-think my plan. Maybe an SV27.

    I think traxxas really ends up hurting themselves when they do this. Once motivated buyers like us wait too long we end up just going with something else. You cant introduce something and make people wait. At least with the slash 4X4 there were versions out there people could buy... in this case, there is NO titan.

    This happens with pretty much every vehicle that Traxxas releases. They get released, they announce a date, it gets pushed back, and people complain. It happens. The date they give is an estimate, not a date that is set in stone. Give it time, the Titan will come.

    Good thing I already had my mind set for a December purchase.

    Or I might have been a little upset like some folks on here....and where I am there's no ice (Caribbean) so I can run her all year long.

    only real issue with waiting for a new boat to come out is the fact that most buyers will see ice by the time some of these new boats come out
