    Ordered mine

    Per my request the LHS ordered 4 LaTrax Rally cars, one of each color. So I snagged the Blue and Yellow one. Horizon had them estimated at late July and Tower had them in August some time. LHS went with Horizon. Also ordered some extra lipos from SPC - http://www.spcracing.com/index.php?productID=107. They should fit according to the specs on the web page. Cant wait for a little racing with the grandsons. I'll use lipos and they can use the NIMH. "Its better to be old and devious, than young and exuberant".

    Of course it is, it's powered by Eli's right arm. That is the #1 reason I will be getting the blue one.

    That's why Tom at SPC makes 3s lipos. I'll probably end up blowing up the car. Win at all cost.

    Ouch!!! They shouldnt even need your money just your word. LOL

    TH still showing August. I hope they ship sooner than that. Or someone gets one faster to.

    This will be something I can zip around at break time at work. Now that I hear the SPC Lipos can fit i'm exstatic. I will for sure remove the molex and solder on some Traxxas ones. haha

    I checked with my LHS where I ordered two of them and they said delivery July 23rd. BUT that can and probably will change. The LHS ordered them from Horizon Hobbies. You might check with Horizon and see if they are taking orders or if your LHS can order from Horizon. More later as the order gets updated.

    Just received an Email from Tower Hobbies and they are now accepting orders for the LaTrax. Didn't say when they would ship. $149 just like the rest.

    Just got off the phone with Traxxas support and they have no idea when the LaTrax is going to be introduced. The assistant even went to his supervisor to check updates. No one in the support dept knows. I told him that Traxxas introduced the Telluride after the Latrax intro and have released it before the LaTrax. I just hope they are not having problems with it. Was hoping to get it before the snow starts flying.

    Mmm great, thanks for the info I've been trying to get an answer on when they will be available and the last I heard was the end of last month.
    Oh we'll it least I don't have to worry about the snow as we haven't had any of the white stuff since 1956.
