    You have 1 item in your shopping cart.... wait, what?

    Crashed the ERBE the other day, and lost my HPI wheel hex. Had to look up the part number, so I grab the Ipad (which is "my wife's").


    I type HPI wheel hex into google, and get a tower hobbies link. Close enough.


    You have one item in your shopping cart, and I'm curious... check the cart, XO-1!!!! I think the wife is going to get me one! Woot! I'm all for the car, I just thought convincing her 1100 bucks for another rc car would be a lot harder...

    The question is, what are you gonna have to get her to top it?
    Sit down, buckle up, hold on, pay me...

    The XO-1 was on top of my list too! Everything on my list is either not out yet, or sold out. The other thing right below this was the T201 Asus Transformer Prime. Much cheaper. LOL

    $1100+ isnt hard to spend for a LADY!! Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds!!!!!

    I hope you get that Xo-1, you are the right guy for it I am sure!
    I think the telemetry of the 'i' device is darn cool and helpful, that is trick.

    Diamonds, such a shame there is sooooooo much mark up $$ in them, they depreciate quicker than your car will LOL

    And Diamonds don't even do anything near as cool as 100mph, they just sit there and sparkle.

    Congrats on your little investigation. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    I think there is something to what godspeed is saying. Once you place an order your cart is empty. If the car is IN the cart... it hasn't been ordered... But heres to anticipation man... I'm rooting for you.

    My thoughts exactly. 100mph, air splitting, pavement shreading, mean sounding XO-1 Supercar!!!!! But what do you think she would say to a $1100 TOY in her mind?? She would definitely say I know of 1100 different things that could be bought of way more importance. LOL

    lol.... you might be right, it was STILL in the cart, after I picked up the neglected Ipad... I just have to assume she found a better deal somewhere else....

    right?




    edit:

    This car is probably more like 1500 for me. I figure once I pick this up, I'll need the host of sensors and another receiver for the ERBE. If I'm payin for a fancy radio, I want to use it on more than 1 car.... I'm not sure if the Slash deserves the fancy treatment...

    Dude I was thinking the same thing, I'm going to get one when it comes out but like you said that new radio will be nice on the E and I would like it on the Slash 4x4, getting the other rigs converted over will be more painful than the car, I haven't studied it to death but it don't look like we'll have to start hopping it up out of the box just to keep it running, I hope. Good luck bro. Merry Christmas yalll, here's to the RC santa taking good care of us all.

    A local shop I go to listed a pre-order for the XO-1 for $935. If I had the money I could be the first I'm Colorado to have it. Do want.

    Nope, y'all were right, the cart would have been empty.

    I'll still pick one up, I just really thought my wife beat me to it.

    You should have just ordered it from the cart....and when you got it you could act surprised and she would think she accidentally ordered it. Muahahahaha!
    If you can't beat it....destroy it!

    Well... this is kind of a silly idea...

    I think this car is too expensive for most people, and I doubt that my LHS is going to stock one. But they should... its a piece of art. I want to go to the LHS and tell them hey I'll prepay for it, and then let them display it in their case for a couple of weeks.

    If they want to give me a break on the price, great. If not, oh well. Heck maybe they're way ahead of me... but if not, it might be cool for locals to see one in person.

    I was talking to my LHS owner and he said he was going to get a couple. Which is strange cause his shop is kind of small. I would love to buy it from them, but my 1:1 truck is eating a whole in wallet at 11mpg.
