    Question Cheapest place to buy Traxxas Slash 4x4 online??????? 1/10 scale

    Hi everyone, I was wondering what the cheapest place is to buy the 4x4 slash online. I saw it for like $360 2 weeks ago but wasn't ready to buy it yet. Wish I would have bought it now. Anyone know the cheapest place for me to buy this truck? Thanks for the info. Justin

    Hobby Lobby's are independantly owned so different stores can charge different prices. The one in Dallas off of Walnut Hill is cheaper than the one in Arlington. Might check them out.

    Thanks for everyone that responded to help me out. Ive been trying to find discount codes for these RC sites and most of the codes are expired or not that good. If anyone knows of any specific codes that are working please share them. If I can get the Slash 4x4 for $304 shipped like snake eater I'll buy that right now. Even Scutt got it for $345 shipped. Sign me up for that too! Again thanks for any help............

    Just to add amainhobbys.com is located here in CA very close to where I live so Id have to pay about $35 in taxes. Id like to find a deal out of CA so I can get away from the extra $35-$40 in taxes. I wish I could find something soon so I can order this.

    Dirt Cheap RC usually has pretty good prices on new Traxxas cars. I got my 4x4 for $360 without having to find coupons or join any rewards programs. Sure, they can be found for cheaper if you really try, but there's something to be said for simple!

    hi def man, Thanks for the code! They are all on back order besides the only one that I really didn't want. Grey and black. I read online that could be until late April. When I called them they had no idea they said. $50 off is a great deal but do you happen to have a code for more off if I spend more? Kind of wondering if I get the Slash Ultimate if that would be ready to be shipped out and it might be worth it if I got more off. Thanks for the code hi def man. I might just get the grey one if I have to wait a month or so for the other colors.

    Either red and black or black and red. Either one. I might just have to go with the grey one if it is going to save me $50. But then if I want to buy the other color top I'll drop $40 on that after wards. If that is the case I'll just use the grey one until I need to replace it if it broke or cracked.

    I did and found all but the grey one was on back order so I called them and they said they really dont have any idea if they will get them right away or a month from now. Plus she said it depends on how many they have sold that people are waiting on and how many comes in. I really dont like the grey one but might just go with it. For spending that much money though you sure want to make sure you get the one you really like. That code was pretty much exactly what I was looking for though. Thanks for hooking it up.

    Hi def man, I tried to buy it today from tower hobbies and it wouldn't let me use that code since Im not actually a Tower Hobbies SS Club member. I went to sign up on the website and it is $10. I think if I signed up and paid the $10 and did that before ordering my truck it would work the next time I signed in to purchase it. I called the 800 number and asked them and the lady wasn't to excited about my idea and said no that number wasn't emailed to me and I can't use it. I had the feeling I could and think it would work. Not sure if it is worth the hassle to buy the member ship not knowing if it would work and then the truck is on back order too. I asked her if she knew when they would get them in and she said they have no idea again like the last lady I asked. Not sure what to do.....?????? I'll check some of these other sites that hopefully have them instock but might cost a little more.

    Can I ask everyone whats up with the Slash Ultimate? I know it is a Slash with upgrades but is it really worth the extra $140? Sounds like it might just be more durable. True? Wondering if I found a deal on that if it would be worth the extra cash? Im happy to spend the extra money but like to get a good deal cheaper than the norm.

    Hi Justin, when I was younger and I got my first traxxas it was the slash 1/10 and I got it from traxxas,becuase it was the cheapest at the time, the lesson is sometimes you just need to go eBay though. That's where I got my second one
